In pharmaceutical companies, alarms are critical to the health of a room—and the viability of the product being manufactured there. Alarms, as part of the Control System, provide detailed information such as what day, time, how long, and if there was any product being made in that room when the alarms occurred. However, the Control System is typically in a separate room or secure part of the facility, where not everyone can have access to it—for many good reasons. But what if others can benefit from access to some of the data or the amalgamation of that data?
To address this challenge, the Control Associates Data Management team created an integration between the Control System and the industry’s widely accepted Data Historian tool.
