Engraining Automation Into Today’s Continuous Manufacturing Quality Systems

Presenter: John White

1:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Workplace Organization


This presentation discusses the need for advanced controls in quality. It examines the scope of Critical to Quality (CTQ) and Critical to Process (CTP) factors for production. It describes how automation can help monitor these in real time, how programming can take human error out of the equation, how engineering limits can be used to bind processes to run or not run based on CTP feedback, and includes real-life examples on continuous manufacturing operations. It also considers how automation can hurt an operation, with consideration to startup and integration costs, maintenance, complex CTQ detection, and ROI.
