Flexible Batch Management

Batch Management software effectively manages flexible batch operations found in the process industries, including life sciences, fine chemicals, and food and beverage/CPG. Adhering to the ISA-88 standards for batch control, it provides guidance and oversight to both recipe management and batch execution. Batch Management software coordinates everything with the plant control systems, interfaces with the operators, and directs batch activity, material flow, and production data to a historical database for a full electronic batch record (EBR).

Software packages from Minebea-Intec for both Automatic and manual dosing under the commercial names of ProBatch+, ProrecipeXT depending on the individuality of your process will cover your most strict demands. 

Batch management ProBatch+ can manage a large number of materials pertaining to a production line.
With only a few operator steps, raw material quantities used and recipe quantities produced can be called up. Automatic stock monitoring is included. Material tracking with three freely selectable batch parameters and one data field can be activated optionally.

electrical-project1 In ProBatch+ recipes are created in the well-known Windows user interface. Batch and special procedure steps, such as mixing, heating, cooling etc. are registered in the recipes. In addition, recipe steps can execute powerful script functions for humidity corrections of specified set points, for synchronisation of process steps or for the display of user dialogues. The script functions make it possible to implement rapid adaptations to new process require- ments without the need to carry out expen- sive programming in the PLC. Data can be processed and stored at the recipe level, production line level and installation level. In addition, sub-recipes and correction recipes, which can be repeated recurrently to optimise product quality, are possible. With ProBatch+ several batches of a recipe can be executed within one production run. Production plans can be produced for each production line individually and executed both automatically and by user enabling. At any time the user has a clear overview of the entire production and can intervene when necessary. Operating errors are avoided by means of graphic highlighting of currently permitted commands. The current process status is constantly indicated for each balance and each production line. This includes gross weights, orders, current recipes and components with specified and actual values, and the status of the batch controllers. Alarms and system messages are each highlighted in colour and gathered in a separate list window. At the end of every recipe run ProBatch+ generates batch and production reports. Material management makes available reports on consumption, production quantities and stock levels.
All reports can be adapted to customer requirements, since they are generated using the Crystal Report Generator. By means of an integrated security system users with different access rights can be logged on. This prevents operator error and avoids unnecessary batch faults. The clear and user-friendly operator interface is supported by the incorporation as standard of almost every European language (see below). All texts can be adapted to location or installation specific conditions. The languages can be changed during operation. In this way ProBatch+ is applicable globally and is quick to learn. A detailed Help function is integrated and is available in English and German.
