Overview

The InBatch Development course is a 4-day instructor-led class that provides you with a fundamental overview of the concepts and terms associated with Wonderware InBatch Software. The course includes providing you with the opportunity to apply the product to a batch process application. InBatch is flexible batch management software designed to model and automate batch-oriented production processes. InBatch software allows users to quickly and easily create recipes and simulate their execution against a model of the process—all before writing one line of control code. InBatch software’s powerful batch engine reduces the time to automate batch processes by 40 to 60% over competitive solutions. InBatch software facilitates the design and implementation of solutions that are compliant with 21 CFR Part 11, the US Regulation on Electronic Records and Electronic Signatures.
