[Abstract]: In these modern days, there are large increases in technology in which the controlling and monitoring of the system can be achieved using software such as PLC and SCADA. The functions and applications are well discussed in this dissertation.

This project has involved the standard industrialised and process engineering softwares which are able to solve very complex and challenging tasks. Both PLC and SCADA are mostly used in production, manufacturing, power generation,
refining, and fabrication and process industries.

This dissertation will deeply outline the role of PLC in the Conveyor belt system to achieve the sorting of the different types of washer (material type). It will also
give the steps that are needed to achieve the controlling and monitoring of the conveyor belt system using SCADA. Their theoretical backgrounds will be discussed as well as the role played by the optical sensors and actuators in this
