Emerson offers an integrated Spectral PAT solution for DeltaV, allowing manufacturers to pursue closed-loop control (and real-time quality assessments) using in-line spectroscopic instruments.
Christian Berg describes some solutions and technologies which facilitate the pursuit of the adaptive plant for manufacturers in the Life Sciences industry, as defined by the BioPhorum Digital Plant Maturity Model.
The BioPhorum Operations Group (BPOG) established a digital plant maturity model (DPMM) for biopharmaceutical manufacturing to define stages of factory evolution “from simple paper-based plants through to the fully automated and integrated ‘adaptive plant’ of the future.” The model gives organizations a common tool for industry comparison and measurement of progress. It also provides a platform to facilitate collaboration within the life sciences industry and its technology providers.
Emerson’s Christian Berg presented Are We There Yet? Tackling Manufacturing Challenges with the Digital Plant at the Pharma Manufacturing World Summit in Boston.
Initiating Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) production operations, whether as part of facility start-up, product changeover, or following a shutdown, requires complex coordination of both logical and physical process controls. Inefficient configuration and qualification practices for automation and information management systems can lead to both start-up delays and productivity losses.
Flow is the foundation of world class production processes. Impediments to flow result in waste (transportation, inventory, motion, waiting, over-processing, over-production, defects). Unfortunately, digital solutions are often leveraged to address observed wastes in production processes without first addressing foundational problems.
