Last Friday we conducted a second graphics review specifically with the primary engineering consultant. Although he was in India and I in Baton Rouge, we were able to have a teleconference and each access the SCADA system via our Web browsers. Unlike the review with the City earlier in the week, there was a lot of feedback, both verbally and then confirmed in writing. This review went considerably beyond the issue of graphics, also including the desired configuration for alarms, reports, redundancy and final documentation.

This week we will look into adjusting plans based upon the review. A number of the suggestions need to be implemented at the first station prior to roll-out to the other 12, so we can be certain we are not faced with considerable rework.
