S88 for Continuous Processes

There is a new article on ControlGlobal

ISA-88 Works for Continuous Processes Too
Using ISA88 Principles to Address Procedural Operations in Industries Outside the Traditional Batch Realm

But it has no opportunity to make comments on it, so I will blog it.
S88 for continuous processes has been a topic for years.
This article says, "A procedural operation is a set of tasks conducted the same way time after time to achieve a certain goal"
Well, that is not actually the complete story - why? Because it misses out the batch.
And there is always a batch. Even in a continuous process.
I have commented on this before, look at the continuous tagged entries in this blog for more.
