From the Publisher

Historically batch control systems were designed individually to match a specific arrangement of plant equipment. They lacked the ability to convert to new products without having to modify the control systems, and did not lend themselves to integration with manufacturing management systems.
Practical Batch Management Systems explains how to utilize the building blocks and arrange the structures of modern batch management systems to produce flexible schemes suitable for automated batch management, with the capability to be reconfigured to use the same plant equipment in different combinations.
It introduces current best practice in the automation of batch processes, including the drive for integration with MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) products from major IT vendors. References and examples are drawn from DCS / PLC batch control products currently on the market.

- Implement modern batch management systems that are flexible and easily reconfigured
- Integrate batch management with other manufacturing systems including MES and ERP
- Increase productivity through industry best practice

How Much Inventory Does Your Company Need?

Q: What's the right level of inventory for my business? A: In my book, there's only one right answer to this question: You always want enough stock on hand so that customers can buy whatever they want, whenever they want. If you're sold out, then you're turning away people who are primed to buy--and that's worse than having no customers at all. Compounding this situation is the fact that "sold out" switches your company into crisis mode, in which you're likely to pay a premium to vendors for a quick turnaround of new inventory, on top of vastly more expensive airfreight charges. But I suspect
