PLCs source code analyzed in unique project | Dunea
Smarter use of machines with software analysis
Drinking water company Dunea produces and supplies drinking water to 1.3 million customers in the western part of South Holland province. The dunes between Monster and Katwijk are vital for the production of drinking water and as recreational area for one million visitors each year.
Dunea manages these dunes with utmost care and is one of the initiators of the Holland Dunes National Park. Its partner SIG recently analyzed the software that Dunea uses to control ABB drives. This analysis resulted in new insights in the area of sustainability, a theme that is high on the agenda of both Dunea and ABB.

“The lessons that we learn here enable us to make improvements with every upgrade.”
– Alex Huisman, Dunea Process Automation
SIG triggered a behavioural change. The assessment did not just measure the quality of the software, but the score itself also served as a motivating catalyst among developers. Now developers actively pursue high quality software and continually improve upon their skills.

In assessing a vendor for a critical software purchase, TÜViT told us that SIG was the only one organization certified to determine if (1) the purchase was a good foundation for future excellence (2) it was worth the investment (3) it could integrate it seamlessly into our own organisation. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with SIG again.

The work with SIG was very beneficial for our due diligence and helped us in the decision making process. The combination of deep technological understanding and the necessary pragmatism when looking at early stage companies proved very value adding for us and also for our target company.

The SIG toolset has enabled us to gain valuable insight into the code quality of potential acquisition targets, thereby enabling the company to make decisions based on quantitive measures rather than subjective opinion.

For our major risks in large scale development with or without partners we turn to SIG to set the benchmark for quality delivery and improvements of the code base. Their professionalism in these matters certifies the long term sustainability of our software assets and as such our investments.
