THE WBF BOOK SERIES-APPLYING ISA 88 In Discrete and Continuous Manufacturing features: * How to apply ISA 88 batch recipes to continuous and semi-continuous manufacturing processes * How to use ISA 88 recipes for packaging of consumer packaged goods and defining a Compliant Packaging Environment * Examples of applying ISA 88 and 99 to manufacturing and packaging systems integration. ISA (International Society of Automation) standards 88 and 95 are manufacturing standards established in the late 1990s and periodically updated by the governing bodies responsible for them--the Instrumentation Society of America and the American National Standards Institute). The two standards set up protocols and uniform specifications for batch control systems, including types of control equipment, design of control systems and interpretation of batch control data. In Volume 3, the reader will find innovative applications of ISA batch recipes to continuous and semi-continuous manufacturing operations, as well as how to integrate with ISA 95 standards for total integrated manufacturing automation. The ISA 88 and 95 standards have been around (and periodically updated) for nearly 20 years now, but little really helpful has been published on how to put those standards into use, particularly from a pragmatic, real-life experience point of view. The four books in this new series will do exactly that: explain to the manufacturing engineer, the controls engineers, and the industrial planner and manager alike how these standards translate into improved batch and continuous process operations--and ultimately how those operations can be integrated and automate into the general business operations (accounting, inventory, customer relations, product development) of the manufacturing concern.
