SPIDER Network for Automation Training

Biopharmaceutical, Workforce

Automated bioprocess test beds will be designed and implemented across three sites. Each test bed will consist of process Sensors and software for Process control, Integration, Data analysis, process Evolution, and Reporting. The test beds in the SPIDER Network will be used for training that addresses automation topics relevant to engineering, validation, operations, and quality assurance personnel. The team will develop an introductory course that can be delivered in hybrid format: online lectures and hands-on automation activities to apply new learning. In the future, the test beds will support additional courses and can also be used by research teams to facilitate innovation of new process analyzers, software, production processes, and data analysis models.
