Continua Process Systems
Process Automation & Data Management Services
Continua Process Systems offers a full range of process automation and data management services to assist with the selection, design and implementation of the solution best suited for your continuous manufacturing process.
We recommend utilizing an integrated project team model to architect, plan and manage the implementation. This approach minimizes chances for incurring unexpected budget overruns and schedule delays.
At a minimum, project team members should include a project manager and systems engineers from Continua Process Systems plus the user’s process automation project team lead, OEM suppliers (i.e. tablet presses, feeders, etc.) and engineering firm. This model emphasizes close collaboration and direct communication between project team members starting with the initial front end engineering and design (FEED) phase through project scoping, implementation, startup and system commissioning.
At the front end, it is essential for the project team to mutually review the User Requirements Specification (URS) to agree upon the scope of work, the optimal automation layer architecture, control network communication protocols, and process control and data management strategy for monitoring and controlling the critical product quality and process performance parameters defined in the URS.
Our experience shows that deploying an integrated project team model from project conception to completion enables key project stakeholders to stay focused on assuring the intent of the URS is clearly understood and met.
Each ContinuousPlant® Software Suite solution is configured by our expert systems engineers to meet the CM user requirements specification (URS). Our systems engineers have extensive knowledge and experience with developing and implementing process control, Process Analytical Technology (PAT), materials tracking and traceability, manufacturing execution systems (MES), and other data management solutions.
We also have data management, PAT, and MES engineers that integrate these core elements into our continuous manufacturing solutions. This combination of technical education, process automation, and data management expertise coupled with process plant and project implementation experience enables us to take a holistic approach on how best to solve CM process automation and data management challenges.
