This workshop explains the purpose and benefits of the ISA-88 standard and its role as both an engineering guideline and a management tool.
ISA-88 is important because it serves as a common language for better communication. It includes methodologies that help to reduce engineering cost and that serve as a management tool. It also supports to define operational requirements more precise and to identify what should and should not be automated. Using ISA-88 enables recipe development without the need for a control system engineer.

Through this course the attendees are getting a better understanding about:

  • Best practices for the design and operation of batch manufacturing
  • Using the standard for improving control for batch manufacturing
  • Insight how a consistent set of concepts, models and definitions can improve communication between parties involved in batch manufacturing

The course focuses on:

  • Structure and format of recipes and procedures
  • Definitions of appropriate levels for recipes and procedures
  • Hierarchy of manufacturing equipment and its control
  • Modular and re-usable control functions.
