Operations Management

Batch Management

AVEVA Batch Management, formerly Wonderware InBatch is a control system independent software that can be used for the most complex batching processes that require a high level of flexibility. Sophisticated equipment arbitration and concurrent batch management capabilities maximise asset utilisation, plant throughout and operational efficiency.

InBatch-imageRecipes are easily created, modified and simulated against a model of the process – fully independent from the underlying control systems. Batch Management software streamlines new product introductions through recipe and batch management standardisation across all of your plant.

Consistent with the ISA S88 flexible batching standard, Batch Management software offers comprehensive batch execution and equipment history, material genealogy, stringent security, web-based reporting and the ability to facilitate the design and implementation of systems that are compliant with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations.

System Platform Integration

Batch Management’s rich functionality can be used standalone, but its at it’s best when leveraged and easily extended with the power of System Platform. Batch Management provides batch object templates for units, connections, segments and phases and a model import utility to automatically build and synchronise the Inbatch process model in the Application Server model. Batch events are primarily related to state changes during the execution of batches. InBatch sends event type and context data which can be used to perform actions such as triggering Wonderware Skelta BPM workflows to enforce standard operating procedures for end of batch sign-off approvals, product quality related procedures, as well as preventative or corrective actions in response to any planned or unplanned event.
