AVEVA Batch Management software helps manufacturers to improve yields through increased product quality and operational efficiency. Automation of the batch processes delivers consistent quality to recipe specifications, maximizes asset utilization, helps eliminate paper records, and reduces batch release cycles.
Batch Management provides recipe execution management and automatic capture and storage of all batch execution data.
It associates the batch execution and equipment history with full product genealogy and material traceability.
The control-system-neutral software empowers process engineers to methodically and safely create and modify recipes
without any expertise in the underlying control system.
The Batch Management server hosts a process model, material details, and recipe information; coordinates concurrent batch execution across networked equipment; and facilitates operator interaction. It manages batch execution either by connecting directly to a control system or via System Platform integration. Multiple servers can share a single batch history database. InBatch facilitates the deployment of solution architectures to meet the needs of critical batch applications and high availability.
Batch Management offers a unique process capability model, which goes beyond ISA-88 by including connections to the equipment model and managing transfer phases. This eases process modelling and enhances batch management capabilities. It enables the batch engine to manage flexible product paths, allowing simultaneous multi-product and multi-stream batch execution on shared equipment while documenting all material flows with detailed material traceability records.
Comprehensive capabilities facilitate the design and implementation of Batch Management systems, applications and solutions that comply with regulations such as FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and Eudralex Vol.4 Annex 11. Enforcing batch sequencing and “done-by” and “check-by” security adds an electronic signature in the batch record. Built-in security and material management capabilities (including material consumption, movements, and inventory levels) contribute to a detailed electronic batch record (EBR) that complies with regulatory requirements of computer systems used in manufacturing.
Our control-system-neutral batch management software offers connectivity for real-time communication to any control system or plant floor device through our device integration servers. It will, however, deliver maximum potential and extensibility when used with System Platform. The batch management software provides object templates for units, connections, segments, and phases. There is also a model import utility that automatically builds and synchronises the InBatch process model with the System Platform plant model, making batch execution information directly available to Historian, MES, Workflow Management, and other applications.
Increase in Equipment Utilization
Engineering Cost Reduction
A batch is scheduled by entering campaign, lot, batch ID, and the desired batch size. A recipe and the train need to be selected.
The Batch Manager directs and supervises the processing of each batch by interpreting a recipe and enabling the control system. Based on the recipe procedure, the Batch Manager activates phases to run.
AVEVA Batch Management provides comprehensive capabilities to facilitate the design and implementation of systems, applications and solutions that comply with regulations such as FDA CFR 21 Part 11 and cGMP
Validation includes verification of recipe existence in the database, process model and materials references, that equipment requirements are satisfied by the train and the batch size fits into the allowed boundaries.
