Exaquantum/Batch is an intelligent ISA-88 Batch Information System. It provides verified analysis and reporting facilities that collect, store and display current and historical data from batch production, equipment and recipe viewpoints.
This enables easy user access to batch information for decision support, production planning, production scheduling, analysis, process improvement, quality and legislative compliance purposes.
Exaquantum/Batch is a valuable tool in batch-orientated industries allowing users to focus on Key Process Performance Indicators. It provides a web browser based analysis and reporting user interface to deliver batch-based information in support of process improvement initiatives.
Interface with OPC Enabled Control Systems
Many field proven interfaces are available for ISA-88 and non-ISA-88based control systems using OPC.
Production Improvement by Six Sigma Analysis
Analyses cycle time variance and quality as batch Key Performance Indicators to identify problems in the production processes, allowing improvements to be made.
Comprehensive Reporting Tool
The comprehensive Exaquantum/Batch reporting package provides Excel-based flexible reporting, which incorporates data from batches, equipment, master recipes and trend values along with the associated alarms.
FDA 21 CFR Part 11
CFR Part 11 option is also available to provide Electronic Record/ Electronic Signature functionality.
The key features of Exaquantum/Batch are:
BatchWeb is a web-based user interface similar to a web portal. On-screen menu selections allow viewing and analysis of different sets of continuously updated batch, equipment and master recipe data from both Exaquantum/PIMS and Exaquantum/Batch databases using standard charts and tables. There are a number of related views, which may be selected:
MANY DIFFERENT METRICS OR KEY PERFORMANCE indicators (KPIs) can be used to measure the effectiveness of batch production. These include: batch cycle times; actual results versus expectations; capacity utilization; batch exceptions; conformance to schedule; and attainment to standard.
Most, if not all, pharmaceutical companies today are moving towards a paperless reporting structure. This article examines FDA's 21 CFR Part 11 regulations, which relate to technical and procedural compliance for electronic records and signatures.
The gold standard for worldwide batch processing control, ISA-88, has had widespread impact in the process sectors which use batch operations. Dave Emerson explains the standard and the advantages it can hold for engineers and operators. The lSA-88 batch control standard has had a profound and unifying impact on the batch processing industry.
Exaquantum is a comprehensive Plant Information Management System (PIMS) incorporating a data historian for real time and historical data, alarms, and events along with aggregations, role-based views and KPIs, graphical HMI, trends, reports, and integration with different systems. It provides a cetralized repository for users throughout the plant and is the foundation for most of Yokogawa's production, safety, and alarm optimization solutions and operator effectiveness solutions. Exaquantum can acquire data from all facets of a process and transform that data into easily usable, high-value actionable information that can be made avaialable across the enterprise.
Exaquantum/Batch is a scalable ISA-88 based Batch Information Management System which collects and stores batch production, equipment and recipe information for tracking and analysis. Exaquantum/Batch can be used with Exaquantum/BRU and Exaquantum/LDX for recipe and lab data management to achieve improved efficiency, quality, plant utilization while providing KPI visibility of all relevant information for key stakeholders.
