SD System Solutions are please to announce the successful completion of a large automation project at GlaxoSmithKline, Harlow, Essex

After several years of intense work in partnership with Integrity Solutions and Distinct Software Solutions the first large phase of the automation project has been completed.

The project consists of one Enterprise Manufacturing Suite (Aspentech) which has links to the Environmental Monitoring(EMS) and Batch Data(Batch) collection SCADA systems. There are four SCADA servers which are linked via a redundant fibre optic industrial Ethernet ring too four Siemens S7-400's (416 & 417) PLC's. These are in turn linked to approximately ten EMS outstations and fifty machines used for batch Pharmaceutical production. Approximately thirty PCS7 clients have been deployed, these have access to the EMS SCADA server for the resetting of alarms and beacons on the EMS, and access to the Batch SCADA system for collection and processing of data from the fifty machines connected to the batch system. The other two SCADA servers consist of a development system and engineering system used for the testing and deployment of new machine additions respectively. The development and engineering SCADA servers also act as backup servers for the primary servers and can be used at any time. Switch over to the backup systems can be completed within an hour (11 seconds if the PCS7 project is already running on either of the backup servers).

 

The system is design to be expanded to allow real-time control and electronic product release as well as the additional of finite scheduling facilies in the future

 

Currently SD System Solutions is completing similar projects on a further five GlaxoSmithKline sites.
