CHICAGO — Industrial producers with batch applications can now create more flexible, reliable and productive operations with the latest release of FactoryTalk Batch software from Rockwell Automation. The software will improve productivity of design teams and will assist operations with improved system reliability and enhanced mobility features.
“Producers continue to look for modern systems to fit the changing needs of their applications and equipment,” said Jamey Geer, product manager, Rockwell Automation. “These enhancements provide greater flexibility when designing, operating and expanding their systems. They also enable operators with more intuitive experiences and improved workflows.”
A key feature of the release is the ability to make online edits for plant areas which require a high degree of control and flexibility while remaining in production. As needs change or as custom recipes are introduced, operators can make changes without having to take portions of the system offline or placing the batches on hold. Additionally, more complex operations will be able to create dynamic flows and recipes with the introduction of formulations to provide options to improve throughput and yield.
Additional improvements focused on mobility, secured architectures and data integration tools will help ensure system adoption for changing workforces and the ongoing needs for enterprise intelligence. “As organizations progress in their analytical capabilities, they require information derived from their batch system to drive meaningful impact. We continue to redefine the expectations of a modern approach to batch control with this system release as part of The Connected Enterprise.”
