    The recipe header and the operations with phases are essential components of the master recipes in reference to one of the basic components of PP-PI.

    <u><i><b>Example :</b></i></u>

    The batches of synthetic material to be produced and the resources required, such as personnel, plants, transportation and recycling and waste disposal capacity are all recorded in the recipe. The operations map primary resources, that is, for each operation, a piece of technical equipment is shown on which the production steps can be carried out. This could be a boiler or a production machine, for example.

    Information that is relevant for controlling is stored in the form of process instructions. These are assigned to the phases of the operation concerned in the process order. When a process order is released for production, the process instructions are transferred to process coordination, where they are grouped into control recipes and sent to the control recipe destination specified in the process order. The control of the process can be carried out by a process operator or by a process control system. If the destination for the control recipe is a process operator, they receive it in a clearly expressed PI sheet on the screen. Since the PI sheet can be supported by the browser function in SAP R/3, there are many different display options. These include incorporating hazard warning notices, calling data sheets from the PI sheet, and displaying dynamic visualization screens via an interface from the process control level directly to the PI sheet. This means the current status of the production plant is communicated constantly. The mobile end devices use state-of-the-art hardware.

    On the software side, the integration of these mobile devices into existing ERP/PCS environments provides the process operator with a high degree of mobility and therefore simplifies the operation of production plants considerably. PI sheets can, for example, be displayed on handhelds. They enable the process operator to call up all the necessary information and to make required entries anywhere in the plant. This means that process operators can be much more flexible with their routine activities and can react more quickly to situations on site. If the destination for control recipes is the process control system, it can be connected to SAP R/3 via two interfaces supported by SAP.
