Connecting enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to control systems and the plant floor requires the definition of an interface. Micromanagement of the plant floor by ERP can slow production. S88.01 developed the concept of procedural objects (phases, operations, and unit procedures) that can accomplish process-oriented tasks. The batch manager or unit supervisor assigns parameters and commands the object to run. The object accomplishes the task on its own, providing data to the manager when it has completed the task. Elevating this concept, a batch can be a procedural object with the ERP system as its manager, allowing the batch on the plant floor to run smoothly from start to finish without the need for continuous interaction with ERP.
