Software manages complex batch processes



Invensys Operations Management has released a new version of its Wonderware InBatch software that can be used to manage complex batch processes and is integrated with the company's ArchestrA System Platform software to provide a unified information environment across a complete manufacturing process. By making batch-management data available to users and systems throughout the plant, the software increases operational effectiveness, helps eliminate islands of automation, and enables better levels of business optimization in real time. InBatch 2012 R2 software provides new recipe-version history and comparison functionality based on XML documents. The software is control-system independent and consistent with the ISA-88 standard on batch control. Its capabilities include recipe management, batch execution management, equipment history, material genealogy, stringent security, and Web-based reporting.
