Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system facilitates the monitoring and control of industrial process from the designated control station. The cost investment for implementing the SCADA system is expensive and is not in approach of small and medium scale industries these days. Developing the customized SCADA system helps to reduce the cost in software components and becomes more close approach to the small and medium scale industries. In this research we presented a SCADA software developed in C# environment and successfully tested in industrial process monitoring and control. The developed SCADA software is capable of remotely supervise, control and data monitoring facility and is also capable of data logging in the IoT server. This approach has been found to be efficient in both aspects, technically and economically.
