THE WBF BOOK SERIES--ISA 88 Implementation Experiences

Book Description

THE WBF BOOK SERIES--ISA 88 Implementation Experiences features: * How to set up flexible Batch recipes with ISA 88 protocols * How to upgrade an existing legacy system with ISA 88 features * How to make best of use of the ISA protocols in complex assembly processes * Case studies of implementing ISA 88 for actual applications in chemical processes, software migration, and other real industry challenges The ISA (International Society of Automation) standards 88 and 95, respectively [ ) are manufacturing procedural and operational standards established in the late 1990s and periodically updated by the governing bodies responsible for them--the ISA and WBF (World Batch Forum). The two standards and their components 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, as well as integrating such processes with the general manufacturing business enterprise. In Volume 2 of the series, the ISA 88 is explained in terms of use in batch processing or semi-batch processing, both when setting up a new ISA 88 system or retrofitting an existing system with ISA 88 "recipes." 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 automated into the general business operations (accounting, inventory, customer relations, product development) of the manufacturing concern.
