SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO - INTERPHEX PUERTO RICO - FEBRUARY 14, 2008 - Invensys Process Systems, which this year is celebrating 100 years in the process control industry, is exhibiting a wide range of production optimization solutions for pharmaceutical manufacturing at INTERPHEX Puerto Rico. Invensys Process Systems will be demonstrating a comprehensive solution set for assisting pharmaceutical and biotechnology manufacturers in optimizing assets to achieve operational excellence, featuring the InFusion(TM) enterprise control system (ECS).

"Achieving true operational excellence in today's market requires timely integration of operational, financial, regulatory, and customer information. Fortunately, thanks in large part to advances in open information management technology, manufacturing companies can deploy integrated enterprise systems at a fraction of the cost previously required. At INTERPHEX, we are demonstrating how these systems can work together to enable pharmaceutical manufacturers to shorten time to market, reduce costs of operating and compliance, improve product quality, and support other strategic efforts to maintain competitiveness. These solutions will enable the industry to truly achieve operational excellence," said Janice Abel, Director of Pharmaceutical Industries for Invensys Process Systems.

The InFusion ECS, the world's first enterprise control system, improves plant visibility, plant performance, process control, and compliance for operational and business excellence. The InFusion ECS integrates disparate systems, including MES, DCS, PLC, and LIMS systems, and increases visibility to the pharmaceutical enterprise. Technologies of the regulatory-compliant ECS include S88 batch management software, S95 production management software, asset management software, process control technology, wireless infrastructure, FOUNDATION fieldbus devices, measurements, and instrumentation. Supporting the Invensys technology offering is an extensive portfolio of consulting services, including validation, cGMP plant-wide risk assessments, training, project management, and compliance services, which are supported from Invensys' San Juan offices.
