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.
Welcome to the "SIMATIC BATCH" tutorial. This tutorial will provide you with an initial overview of SIMATIC BATCH in association with SIMATIC PCS 7. Later on, you will get to know batch process control functions. The tutorial is aimed at first time users of SIMATIC BATCH.
The tutorial "SIMATIC BATCH" consists of three parts:
The first part will explain what Batch actually is.
Process and fields of application for batch
In order to make you more familiar with SIMATIC BATCH, in the next section we will show you the type of technical processes where SIMATIC BATCH can be employed.
It is important to know all the batch terms for later on in the tutorial. This section briefly describes the most important batch terms.

Process model according to
"The kitchen" in SIMATIC PCS 7
In this section, we will use the example of a kitchen to show you how a process model is configured according to the stipultations of ISA-88.
In this section, we show you how the example "the kitchen" is structured in SIMATIC Manager and in SIMATIC BATCH.
In the second part, we will introduce SIMATIC BATCH and show you configuration examples.
Representation of a batch
In this section, we will introduce SIMATIC BATCH.
Using the exaple of a typical production plant, we will show you how simple it is to implement SIMATIC BATCH for batch control.
Execution of a batch
Reaction to malfunctions
Next, you assume the perspective of the operator and demonstrate batch operation using an executable batch.
Dealing with malfunctions is important for the optimum operation of a process engineering plant.
Creating recipes for the batch
Creation and management of batch jobs
The basis for every batch is a master recipe. Such master recipes can be created in SIMATIC BATCH with a convenient and intuitive recipe editor.
One or several batches are created for a production job. The execution of batch is documented in the batch report that is integrated in SIMATIC BATCH.
Illustration of the batch plant in the plant model
The plant model is created according to process engineering viewpoints in the plant view in SIMATIC Manager. The batch structure is also determined in the plant view according to the standard ISA-88.
Finally, we will briefly point out further important highlights of SIMATIC BATCH.
