Batch Automation

The SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system offers a solution for all requirements of discontinuous production: Use the SIMATIC BATCH software package to implement even the most complex batch processes effectively and at reasonable costs.


It can be advantageous to have greater flexibility in a workflow with different processors:
Two decoupled engineering workflows result equipment modeling that is independent of the recipe creation. This enables centralized lifecycle management with creation of generic recipes, which can be rolled out to several plants. There is also still the possibility to design the system in a single unit.

The web option displays the batch controls in the process screens. From the web client, operators can thus start, monitor and diagnose the batch processing.
