In the past, a substantial Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) upgrade would have caused full revalidation, including updates of basically all documentation and verification of a major part of the original functionality. This activity is costly and time-consuming. This chapter describes how to save up to 75% of the expected cost by applying risk assessment to the changes to the system so that risks are identified and eliminated, a feasible level of revalidation ...
