What does DCS mean?

A Distributed control system(DCS) is a type of digital automated industrial control system(ICS) that uses control loops that are geographically scattered throughout a factory, machines, or control region. A DCS, as opposed to a centralized control system, allows each section of a machine to have its own specialized controller that executes the operation. A DCS is made up of numerous local controller spread over the area that is linked by a high-speed communication network. While each controller operates autonomously, a central supervisory control is maintained by an operator.
