Excerpt From The Book

“S88 isn’t just a standard for software, equipment or procedures; it’s a way of thinking, a design philosophy. Understanding S88 will help you better design your processes and manufacture your products. Leveraging the knowledge and experience contained in the standard will enable you and your customers to better identify your needs, make recipe development easier, and help reduce the time to reach full production levels with a new system, or for each new product. Following the concepts explained in S88, you could improve the reliability of your operations and reduce the automation lifecycle cost of your batch processes, including lowering the initial cost of automating your operations.”
