Infant Formula Manufacturer Enhances Its Ability to Capture and Retain Secure Historical Data

Background

A historian collecting manufacturing data on highly critical infant formula is extremely vital for the safe and healthy future of our most prized possessions: babies. One of our clients wanted to replace their mostly manual “paper” data recording methods with a secure, validated and robust automatic data historian. Malisko was tasked with helping our client meet its expectations for such a data historian.

Objective

Provide a robust, secure and validated data historian to automatically collect Critical Control Points (CCPs) and other essential data from four different systems including a CIP skid, a process center, a filler, and packaging equipment.

CHALLENGE

  • The four (4) systems consisted of different platforms of control and HMI.
  • Configuring a Wonderware IDE Galaxy along with historical templates that suited each of the systems’ needs.
  • Establishing a data format standard that could be applied to the different platforms.
  • Getting the OEMs of each system to follow the standards set by MEI and Client.
  • Designed, specified and created the following Wonderware IDE Galaxy data platform:
  1. Galaxy Repository IDE on 1 new VM
  2. Redundant Historians on 2 new VMs
  3. OI/DAS Connections to 5 PLCs
  4. Historian Client
  5. IDE Templates for data points
  6. IDE Objects from Templates
  • Developed and executed Computer System Validation (CSV) documents for the data platform.
  • Provided historical data templates that were extremely easy to drop into each OEMs systems for data historization.

RESULTS

Provided client with a secure, robust and validated historical data system needed to release product and improve process and packaging system troubleshooting.
