Approximately twelve years ago Genzyme’s Allston, MAfacility was built with a conventional distributed control system (DCS) that was used formanufacturing two enzyme replacement therapies. This manufacturing suite has been recently renovated to facilitate the new process equipment and multi-bus control system. This Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Special Report features two articles that highlight issues associated with the installation of a multiple fieldbus control system and talks about its implications for handling an entire manufacturing suite. A third article discusses how housing for control and automation devices and networks is evolving right along with the devices they contain, so it's even more important to choose the appropriate enclosure for the application.
