Abstract Over the past 20 years there has been significant advancement in automating batching processes in the Chemical industry. Many of the principles, models, and best practices outlined in the ISA-88 standard have lead to better control systems, more efficient designs, increased flexibility and safer operation of Batch processing plants. Recently, ISA 106 was formed and now is working towards producing a standard for automating procedural operations in continuous processes. We review the concept of Modular Procedural Automation and a case study of how a company implemented procedural automation and the direct benefits they have achieved.
