"CPACT provides a useful user forum in which to network, understand “end user requirements” and explore collaborative development projects, particularly in the Pharmaceutical sector. In particular we will look to CPACT partners to provide expertise in analytical instrumentation, a broader view of the Pharmaceutical supply chain and hopefully collaborative project opportunities in the field of process monitoring and control."
About Perceptive Engineering
Perceptive Engineering Ltd is one of a select number of companies, which exploit model based engineering techniques to achieve improvements in Industrial performance.
The application of model based controllers in conjunction with Statistical Process Monitoring in a real time environment is an innovative use of two existing technologies that assists industrial manufacturers achieve improved performance.
Our product, PerceptiveAPC suite consists of five software packages:
- ControlMV and
These packages have been developed to tackle the manufacturing and process challenges faced by our customers.
In addition, Perceptive Engineering has developed PharmaMV, to meet the specific demands of the pharmaceutical sector. The software satisfies the requirements of 21CFR Part 11 and provides modelling, data validation, PAT sensor integration and predictive process control. The software has also been selected and approved by Siemens for the SIPAT platform.
WaterMV has also been released, providing data management, process monitoring, real-time predictive control and plant optimisation for the water and wastewater sector. The programme is designed to reduce energy, maintain or improve treated water quality, make process data more robust, and improve operational decision support.
NutriMV has been created for the nutritional and dairy sector, to increase product yield and minimise waste or re-worked material. Faster, more consistent asset start-up and shut down also enables more agile manufacturing.
