Pipeline integrity and safety are the main objectives in the operation of a pipeline. Furthermore error-free and economical operation is important. Many of today's pipelines are in operation for decades and the increasingly aging infrastructure leads to a number of risk factors. The implementation time for a SCADA system is insignificantly short compared to the lifetime of a pipeline. During the design and construction phase of a pipeline, neither the SCADA engineering nor the basic engineering can cover all tasks, opportunities and risks that operators will face during the life cycle. Therefore, it is extremely important during the entire pipeline lifecycle to provide the operating and maintenance personnel with tools which enable the continuous optimization of the pipeline process - against the background of changing conditions and a changing piping system. Systems that accompany all phases of the life cycle and adapt to the changing demands
