SIMATIC BATCH can be used either as a single-user-station solution or as a client/server system. Modular architecture with flexible scalability (hardware and software) means:
- Optimum adaptation to plant size and individual requirements
- Minimised expansion costs
Simple batch processes with parameterizable procedural control are automated using the SFC and CFC tools included in the Engineering System.
For Client-Server-Systems, it is possible to edit recipes separately from the engineering system.
A redundant design of the batch server increases availability and prevents loss of batch data. Batch data are synchronized automatically.
Integrated recipe editor with graphic user interface for simple, intuitive creation and modification of basic recipes and library operations
The Batch Control Center (BatchCC) gives you the option to manage the data relevant for SIMATIC BATCH via graphic user interface.
SIMATIC BATCH supports plant-neutral recipes for simpler recipe management and validation as well as hierarchy recipes to ISA S88.01 for recipe creation in process engineering.
Extended planning function: Use the optional package Batch Planning to plan batches for a number of production runs in advance.
Saving, archiving and comprehensive reporting of batch data in XML format
Simple importing and exporting of master recipes, formulas and library objects
SIMATIC Logon for central user management and authentication as well as "Electronic signature" for release of basic recipes, formulas and library objects
Comprehensive validation support
- Compliant to FDA 21 CFR Part 11
- Audit trail (modification logbook)
- Versioning of recipes, recipe operations and formulas
- Central user administration with access protection and electronic signature
