Service Specifics

Distributed Control Systems (DCS)

Regulatory Compliance

Developed by the International Society of Automation (ISA), the S88 and S95 standards provide structure for designing, implementing, and maintaining batch processes. Within this framework, batch systems adhering to S88 are identified as Level 2 systems. They are subordinate to Level 3 MES systems and achieve process control through interaction automation and control.

Our DCS engineers, all S88 experts, develop standardized control strategies and programming templates that enhance modularity, reusability, flexibility, and scalability. This allows companies to achieve greater efficiency and regulatory compliance, while quickly adapting to evolving production requirements and new technological advancements.


Complete End-to-End Solutions 

Aztec engineers are experienced with a range of DCS platforms, including DeltaV, PlantPAX, ABB, Siemens, and Honeywell. From system design and configuration to programming batch processes following S88 standards, our team possesses the specialized skills and experience needed to ensure seamless integration and optimal performance. 

Aztec engineers have experience integrating solutions at multiple levels of the S95 framework, providing our customers with expertise in design and implementation of interactions between DCS and MES as well as Data Collection Systems, and understanding crossover technologies. Well-versed in multiple platforms, our expertise has proven invaluable to our customers, and our engineers are at the forefront of the 4th Revolution in Automation (Industry 4.0/Pharma 4.0).

Aztec’s automation experience in process areas and technologies spans from upstream and downstream processing, single use technology, cell and gene therapy, DNA (mRNA), formulation, visual inspection, fill finish, packaging, and assembly. 

Aztec’s prebuilt solutions for upstream (bioreactor) and downstream (tangential flow filtration and chromatography) controls are cost-effective and highly adaptable for single use technology as well as stainless steel equipment, and cover a wide range of areas, from laboratory, pilot and process scale to commercial manufacturing.

Aztec has been providing pre-packaged, fully validated solutions for an original equipment manufacturers as well as Aztec clients. We follow our own internal QMS procedures and processes and have successfully been audited by multiple life sciences customers.
