Software Uses Single Batch History Server
Invensys Operations Management has released a new version of its Wonderware InBatch software. Able to use a single batch history server as the central historian data repository for multiple InBatch servers, InBatch 9.5 provides support for Windows Server 2008 R2 for the batch server, as well as the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system for batch clients.
Featuring new batch markup language (BML) standards-based recipe import/export capabilities, the software enables external applications to store recipe versions in a document-management system for regulatory requirements or compliance reasons, or to use in-house applications to create new recipes or recipe versions.
InBatch offers a wide range of batch management capabilities, including recipe management, batch execution management, 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.
Featuring a comprehensive capabilities model that goes beyond ISA-S88, the runtime batch engine is able to manage flexible product paths, including equipment allocation/arbitration, and allow batch execution management for multiple, concurrent batches on shared equipment and connections.
