Re: industrial control systems

The problem often is there isn't a parallel test system on which you can deploy patches.

If your kit costs tens of thousands (if not much much more) and is in use 24/7 asking "can you buy us a complete parallel system to test" is something you are going to have trouble getting past finance.
