The SCAD Software approach is to achieve a 40% code reduction, leading to 75% faster to market and typically 30% lower cost. In this instance, we delivered in 3 months, immediately reducing the level of access a wide range of people had to sensitive areas and the subsequent chance of theft.
We built an access control system to integrate with the PLC and SCADA access control systems in the mine. The objective was to deliver additional controls and security for people accessing the mine.
We partnered with the business to design and implement a system whereby the time and purpose that individuals would be allowed into restricted areas of the mine would be further reduced and then strictly monitored, creating alerts when these were by-passed.

After working as a software consultant to the global banking industry for six years, Andy has devoted the last two decades to realising his vision to transform the software development industry.
Since 1998, when he founded SCAD Software, Andy was aware that the business world was accumulating a vast and unsustainable level of technical debt, with legacy source code becoming a risk factor for organisations of all size. As markets change and digital transformation becomes integral to every business, Andy realised that out-of-date software would put the future of many organisations in jeopardy.
To address this risk, Andy developed a radical new approach to custom software development, which time and time again has delivered large-scale software projects 75% faster than other methods.
Andy is now overseeing the expansion of SCAD Software into new markets in Asia, Middle East, UK, Europe and North America as well as extending the portfolio to include a number of packaged solutions.
