Claim of US Patent No. 10,990,083

1. A method for operating a supervisory control, and data acquisition (SCADA) environment, comprising:assigning an abstraction representation to data associated with a system of the SCADA environment;
providing the abstraction representation to a control system associated with the system of the SCADA environment, wherein the control system is implemented in a computer system;
receiving, actual data from the system of the SCADA environment;
generating abstract data from the actual data using the abstraction representation;
forwarding the abstract data to the control system;
receiving new abstract data from the control system implemented in the computer system;
translating the new abstract data into new actual data using the abstraction, representation; and
forwarding the new actual data to the system of the SCADA environment.
