  • Practical Batch Process Management
    Practical Batch Process Management. Introducing current best practices in the automation of batch processes, this book includes the drive for integration with MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) products from major IT vendors.
  • Redefining Process Automation
    Not so long ago, the typical pharmaceutical facility might have employed a distributed control system (DCS) for batch process control tasks as well as a variety of stand-alone programmable logic controllers (PLCs) for controlling individual machines. They didn't much talk with each other
  • Automation's Double-Edged Sword
    On another level, the FDA, reacting to the industry's desire to take advantage of the efficiencies of increased automation, has sought to regulate the means by which software-based systems obtain, transmit or store digital information. The envisioned goal is true paperless documentation
  • Medical Device Link . Automation Equipment Provides Speed, Reliability
    is to increase throughput while containing costs. "With bigger batch sizes and more emphasis on process control, the need for automation increases," says Adrian Sch arli, product manager at Essemtec AG (Aesch, Switzerland). Medical OEMs are gradually implementing more automated systems, and machines now
  • Advanced Process Control: Bridge the Gap
    . For many, quality is still measured more by the degree of error-free documentation than it is by fundamental process knowledge. Nowhere is this wound more apparent than in the drug industry s slow adoption of process control and automation in particular, advanced process control technologies. Advanced
  • Monitor Your Pump for Process Efficiency
    Pumps are all too frequently one of the most overlooked and abused pieces of equipment in process automation, yet nothing moves without them and a process becomes inefficient when they don't operate properly or completely shutdown. While it is convenient to blame the pump manufacturer, more often
  • COBE BCT Case Study
    Back in 1992, COBE BCT had been using a production process they called the "Batch Process," in which subassemblies were built on outlying tables, and then moved to central tables for final assembly and packaging. It became apparent that there was room for improvement, and that some sort
  • Steering Pharmaceutical Manufacturing into the 21st Century
    a sampling technique that allows the measurement to be used to adjust or end the process. The best process monitors are designed to give the user a significant amount of confidence that the measurements are representative of the entire batch, and to ensure that the characteristic being measured is
