The master batch recipe procedure, and all nested procedure levels are configured graphically in 800xA Batch Management. The diagram is a Procedure Function Chart (PFC) based on ISA88 standards. The following information can be specified for each individual batch recipe:
- Equipment requirements
- Header and other information
Superior operational and control capabilities with configuration of conditional transitions, logical branching, parallel branching, looping structures and dynamic block labels.
Re-usable procedure building blocks can is easily be managed and created. Unit procedures and operation procedures can be used in multiple higher level procedures. When a modification is made to one of these lower level procedure building blocks, all procedures using that block are updated.
