FLEXIBLE BATCH MANAGEMENT
Wonderware® InBatch® is control system independent software that can be used for the most complex batching processes that require a high level of flexibility.Consistent with the ISA-88 standard on batch control, InBatch software offers batch management capabilities, including recipe management, batch execution management, equipment history, material genealogy, stringent security, webbased reporting and the ability to facilitate the design and implementation of systems that are compliant with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations.
InBatch optimizes throughput and equipment utilization. InBatch’s uniqueness is in its comprehensive process capabilities model, going beyond ISA- 88 to include connections and transfers. This enables the batch engine to manage flexible product paths, allowing simultaneous multi-product and multi-stream batch execution on shared equipment and connections.
InBatch empowers process engineers. Equipped with easy to use recipe configuration tools, process engineers can quickly create or change recipe procedures and formulas without requiring any expertise in the underlying control system. Such flexibility makes a plant more competitive by enabling recipe improvements, demand responsiveness and a fast time-to-market for new products.
InBatch reduces cost of compliance. Built-in security and material management capabilities including material consumptions, movements and inventory levels contribute to a comprehensive Electronic Batch Record (EBR) in accordance with requirements found in FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations.
USING WONDERWARE INBATCH SOFTWARE, YOU CAN ACHIEVE :
• A sophisticated batch management engine with connectivity and a defined interface to phase control blocks, eliminating the need to change control code with recipe procedure changes.
• Reconciliation of material inventory with actual quantities in vessels
• Use of material characteristics during the batch process, including the ability to dynamically adjust and apply formula parameters at runtime
• Generation of specific alarms associated with a specific batch
• Comprehensive batch execution and equipment history with full material genealogy
• Automated batch report creation; for example, at the end of each batch
