At Texas A&M University’s Mary Kay O’Connor Process Safety Center’s 76th Instrumentation and Automation Symposium, Emerson’s Greg McMillan presented on Bioreactor Control and Optimization using Digital Twin technology.
Single-Use Biopharma Needs Specialized pH Sensing Technology
Industry is seeing a shift to single-use biopharmaceutical manufacturing methods, prompting a need for new pH measurement approaches to overcome instrumentation challenges. Monitoring and historizing the pH of a process media batch, and often using this value for...
Impact of Single Use Technologies on Automation and Information Management
One of the conversations happening among pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers is around the "facility of the future". I caught up with Emerson's Gary Mitchell, a consultant on the Life Sciences industry team. He shared some of the trends prompting this relook at...
Examples of Control Performance Improvement
An important part of a smooth running plant is optimizing the performance of the control loops. Emerson's Mark Coughran, a senior process control consultant, describes and shares examples of how loop optimization is a part of a control performance program in regulated...
Lambda Tuning-Yeah or Neah?
I saw a recent ControlGlobal.com article by process control legend, Greg Shinskey, The Case Against Lambda Tuning. He writes: In recent years, this practice of emulating model-based response using PID controllers has been simplified with the introduction of "Lambda"...
Vertical Slices Improve Project Efficiency
In one of those fortuitous hallway conversations, I discovered that Emerson's Bill Robertson had written a project management article for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing magazine. Bill is a certified project management professional (PMP) and professional engineer (PE)....
