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.

Novatek EM-Mobile combines an environmental-monitoring application from Novatek with an Xplore iX104C5 DMCR (Dual-Mode Clean Room) rugged tablet from Xplore Technologies to provide the real-time information needed to manage a pharmaceutical manufacturing process. The device facilitates real-time labeling, collection, and tracking of environmental monitoring, utility monitoring, and product bioburden samples. The system provides secure and compliant electronic data management. Reporting, trending, and facility/cleanroom-mapping capabilities allow accurate analysis. The tablet is dustproof, waterproof, and can be sanitized using standard chemical disinfectants without damaging the product. The package consists of a wireless barcode scanner, wireless barcode printer, a stainless-steel cart and mount that can be used to store and transport sampling media, and air-sampling and particle-counting equipment.
