This project was motivated by the need to overcome a business problem encountered by Wellard Technologies. In order to overcome this business problem, a software application was desired that has the capacity to visually represent and present information pertaining to the main components of an underground rail haulage system. The project simulation was developed using an Iterative Approach to software development; and was implemented using the Wonderware Development Studio package, which is built upon the ArchestrA framework. A total of 7 HMI windows were developed within the Wonderware SCADA environment, which contains a number of components specific to sections of an underground rail haulage system. These components are able to read information from an external PLC and display appropriately the transferred information. The result of the efforts by the intern is a conclusion to phase one of the project; a number of successive phases will see a final product developed that shall be utilised by Wellard Technologies to solve its business problem.
