The pharmaceutical industry's competitive environment of today demands advanced process solutions which improve manufacturing efficiency and profitability. Process control system performance can significantly impact a manufacturer's bottom line. Pharmaceutical manufacturers face common processing challenges, including: • Maximizing productivity from assets in use to meet demand • Maintaining complex sequencing software in batch execution • Troubleshooting the batch process and readily accessing data • Reducing production costs to remain competitive Recent technology advances in batch management far surpass legacy batch control systems, and can simplify operations and optimize investments. Technology advancements in virtualization and running batch in the controller can help you meet corporate and site objectives for modernization, while improving production agility, reliability, reporting, and data analytics. Leading-edge control capabilities deliver increased throughput, lower costs and improve regulatory compliance. Technology now allows an entire batch sequence to execute in the controller, bringing business benefits over a server-based batch system. The scope of the batch sequence can range from a simple predefined unit and phase to a control recipe that is derived from a master recipe and its underlying unit procedure, operations, and phases. A controller based system is inherently more robust and provides a single operating and engineering platform for batch execution. Additionally, the absence of a server removes the associated costs, security, and maintenance issues as well as communication latency. Today there are options for where the controller operates, and both traditional hardware or virtual hardware is available. This provides a more flexible approach where the decision on platform is only dependent on the batch criteria. In addition, virtual systems allow for custom resource management (memory, processor power) which gives the users additional parameters to optimize how their batches are run. Examples will be provided to demonstrate the latest batch process automation technology. The solutions discussed show details on advanced batch management systems utilizing the newest control system technology resulting in manufacturing efficiencies and improved business results.
