Manufacturing information systems seminar

The ISA Ireland seminar "Manufacturing Information Systems" promises to be an enlightening afternoon with contributors having both a practical and acedemic knowledge of the subject.

The seminar is very much aimed at the users of MIS, rather than the vendors. We have deliberately restricted speakers to users from industry rather than integrators or vendors, and our speakers will present actual end user problems and triumphs. Not sales presentations.

We want to ensure that it will provide an opportunity for automation users to network and see what other sites are doing. Its purpose is to try and show where the industry is going, how different manufacturing facilities are positioning themselves and the way that process information is being collected, packaged and used.

Attendance is free, once people have pre-registered. Registration on
Scheduled for Tuesday 12th April at Cork's Rochestown Park Hotel the event starts with Barry Lawlor of Janssen Biologics speaking on the Development and Roll-out of a core MES Solution across the J & J Global Pharmaceutical Supply Group. Barry joined Johnson & Johnson in 2005, as a Senior Automation Engineer, where he worked in partnership with Global Engineering to deliver the control system infrastructure and support mechanisms for the Centocor greenfield start-up. He was appointed as the Project Manager & IT Lead (Biologics) for the development and implementation of an MES core for API manufacturing in 2009. He is currently managing the rollout of the MES Core at the Janssen Biologics site in Cork.

In Genzyme he has led several projects including the integration team of the MES system to the Production Systems and Automation Lead on the Corporate Serialisation Project. This project was initiated in late 2007 and is still running today in the implementation of French market CIP13 requirements.

Charlotta Johnsson of the University of Malmo will talk on Make2Pack and ISA88-part5. Dr Johnsson has four years of industrial experience from Siemens, as a developer of batch-control software. She obtained her doctorate in 1999 at the Department of Automatic Control where she now holds a position as Associate Professor.
She is a voting member in the ISA SP88 and ISA SP95 standardisation committees. Her research interests are production control, manufacturing operations, batch control, and graphical languages.
