Continua Process Systems
Process Automation & Data Management Services
Continua Process Systems offers a full range of process automation, data management, and systems integration services to assist with the design and implementation of the solution best suited for your continuous manufacturing (CM) 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 plus the user’s process automation project team lead, OEM suppliers (i.e. feeders, blenders, and tablet presses, etc.) and engineering firm. The integrated team model encourages 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 process orchestration layer architecture, control network communication protocols, and process automation and data management strategy for monitoring and controlling the critical product quality attributes and process 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, tested, and documented by our CM systems engineers. Our engineering team has the expertise and experience to develop and implement process control, Process Analytical Technology (PAT), materials traceability and tracking, manufacturing execution systems (MES), and other data management solutions.
This combination of process automation and data management expertise coupled with our extensive life sciences project implementation experience mitigates project risk by allowing us to take a more holistic view on how best to solve your CM process automation and data management challenges.
