The proposal of this work is an update on the development of a control system (DCS, Detector Control System) for the new FDD detector and its integration in the ALICE experiment, according to the rules of the new Online-Offline (O2) infrastructure for Run 3 of the LHC, by using the SCADA system (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) called WinCC-OA . This proposal will allow the DCS of FDD detector to have an optimal performance in the physical data acquisition runs, mainly.
