Lilly opted for ControlBuild Validation and the handling library delivered with the product, for the simulation and validation of a conveyor system for pharmaceutical products before it was commissioned.
The project team had to produce a complex system made up of a series of conveyers, used to transport pallets of finished and semi-finished products. Each pallet represents a very high product cost. Delays or damages cannot be tolerated, since that would result in the project making a loss. Therefore, the upstream tests had to be complete enough to guarantee system startup without the slightest incident. The conveyor system is controlled by two PLCs.
