Batch Systems


The complexity of today’s marketplace means that manufacturers are required to produce smaller batches of products with more product variations, quickly and efficiently. Industrial Technology Systems Ltd (ITS) offers a range of Batch Systems (Recipe Control Systems), designed and implemented using the ANSI/ISA-88 (S88) standard, to produce product batches repeatedly and consistently with minimum costs.

The ANSI/ISA-88 (S88) standard provides terminology and models to simplify and improve the design, operation and performance of batch plants. The standard separates the recipes from the process control and production equipment, enabling the same equipment to be used for different stages of the process or to make different products, allowing staff to change and create recipes quickly and easily without software changes.

ITS’ Batch Systems provide automated batch management including recipe development, batch management and execution, production scheduling, equipment performance monitoring, production history and material tracking features. The Batch Systems are designed to improve batch consistency and the automatic collection of real-time, reliable and accurate batch event data.

With an S88 compliant Batch System, manufacturers achieve increases in yield and greater process flexibility and throughput, enabling them to minimise the time to market for new products.

ITS supports legacy Batch Systems and have performed projects in the UK, India and Singapore. Whatever your requirements, whether you need legacy system support, an existing system upgrade or a new system, our team has the skills to meet your needs.

ITS has experience in the design and implementation of Batch Systems from a range of suppliers including:

  • AspenTech PRM
  • Rockwell FactoryTalk® Batch
  • ICONICS BatchWorX
  • Siemens PCS 7 Batch
