Invensys Operations Management has released a new version of its Wonderware InBatch software. Used to manage complex batch processes that require maximum flexibility, InBatch 2012 R2 software is integrated with the company’s ArchestrA system platform software to provide a unified application and information environment across the complete manufacturing process. By making batch management data available to users and systems throughout the plant, the software may increase operational effectiveness and enable better levels of business optimization in real time.
With more integration, InBatch 2012 R2 software makes equipment and phase information useable with the company’s other offerings, including its Wonderware Historian, MES, Corporate Energy Management and ArchestrA Workflow software. This end-to-end approach to production management can help streamline processes, provide complete traceability and genealogy and improve collaboration across systems and people. Additionally, the software provides new recipe version history and comparison functionality based on XML documents, leveraging the World Batch Forum’s Batch markup language standards.
Wonderware InBatch 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, web-based reporting and the ability to facilitate the design and implementation of systems that are compliant with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 regulations.
