Is there a requirement for backup system/s and conventional instruments?Does the system need to be capable of being expanded over time?; What sensors are required --
'standard' (built-in) or specialist sensors?; Will it be cabled or wireless?; Will it be PC-based or have a separate logger?; What degree of automation is sought?; What degree of accuracy and precision is sought?; How often is the information updated?; How robust does the system need to be? What is its desired or expected lifetime?; Is the system 'mission-critical'?
