The InBatch Batch Management course is a 4-day, instructor-led class designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the features and functionality of the InBatch software. The course provides lectures and hands-on labs to supply and reinforce the knowledge necessary to apply InBatch to a batch processing plant application. This includes creating the plant model, creating recipes, simulating their execution, and connecting InBatch to a plant control system.

Target Audience

Knowledge of the following tools, features and technologies is required:

For all students:

  • Manufacturing industry concepts
  • Concept of a batch process
  • Networking for configuring InBatch OS-based security

For the integration of InBatch with InTouch tag-based applications:

  • Creating an InTouch application
  • Tags
  • Creating Windows in InTouch
  • Access Names
  • ArchestrA symbols
  • Importing objects
  • .NET controls

For the integration of InBatch with InTouch for System Platform applications:
