Enhanced batch processing software

May 2005 IT in Manufacturing

Rockwell Automation has announced enhancements to the modules within its batch processing software, Rockwell Software RSBizWare Batch. Available now, the new features in RSBizWare Batch Version 7.0 can improve security, audit capabilities and productivity with the ability to build signature templates, the addition of command verification policies, and expanded functionality for process parameter limits. RSBizWare Batch supports configurable electronic signatures for both automatic and manual operations: a key requirement for regulatory compliance and data security.

The signatures, stored in the software's Batch Event Journal with corresponding audit events, now include multiple levels of signoff, comments, security requirements, and date and time stamps for all activities.

To streamline the setup and maintenance of electronic signatures, RSBizWare Batch now supports signature templates. These templates save valuable time by predefining the number of signoffs required, the purpose of each signoff, whether comments are required and which users or user groups have the security permissions to complete the signoff.
