Tue, 22 August 2017, 11.00-12.45 and 15.00-16.45h, building 8, room B 101

Process analytical technology (PAT) has been demonstrated as one of the key driver for the future plant automation. More and more smart sensors will be analyzing the critical quality attributes of your product and critical asset performance indicators will provide you a clear picture of your over-all plant fitness. All the collected information could result into a real-time release or “lights-out” manufacturing strategy. For the first time, the Swiss PAT community will meet on the SCS Fall Meeting.
