Overview

Take Plant-Wide Control

Whether your organization operates regionally or on a global scale, the STARLIMS Chemical, Petrochemical and Refining LIMS solution will help you monitor and control all of your processes in a centralized system. From raw materials processing to the final production line, STARLIMS provides all the workflows to make sure your petroleum products meet defined specifications, safety requirements and quality standards.

Manage Efficient Batch Testing

  • Schedule collection and testing of sample points, batch and quality control samples
  • Coordinate batch testing, release and Certification of Analysis (COA) generation
  • Use batch templates to define the materials being tested, assign a profile of tests, define results specifications, and control a sample’s progress through its lifecycle
  • Create recipes and batches associated with recipes. Download the formulation management application brochure (PDF, 386 KB) for capability details
  • Manage protocols, sample inventory, studies, pulling schedules, conditions, and locations to achieve stability management goals
  • Outsource tasks with third-party (internal or external) laboratories

Coordinate Testing Schedules

  • Automatically schedule sampling points and QC samples based on multiple criteria and on hourly, daily and annual schedules
  • Configure triggers, sample points, re-sample and re-test workflows
  • Automate or modify testing schedules based on changing compliance, regional customers, season, shifts and holiday schedules
  • Define the season in which a product can be manufactured, and control when batches for specific materials can be logged

Access, Review And Assess Results

  • Automate routine laboratory data analysis and complex calculations
  • Support Statistical Process Control (SPC) via control charts and configure rules to track within the chart. Rule violations can be automatically detected to drive further actions on samples and tests
  • View trends and observe patterns in sample results over time in a graphical format
  • View testing and results comparison for blending, merging and re-grading of product
  • Generate worksheets, result calculations and specification comparisons
Quality & Compliance

Enhance Quality Processes

  • Reduce QA review and release processes. The release by exception concept allows all “within spec” testing to be released automatically. Flagging features alert users when something is out of the ordinary and needs additional review
  • Ensure that all scheduled samples are properly collected and tested with the environmental monitoring module
  • Efficiently manage sample points using visual floor plans

Have Confidence In Compliance And Best Practices

  • STARLIMS has been designed to help your organization comply with a wide range of laboratory regulatory standards, including FDA 21 CFR Part 11 and the EU Annex 11 guidelines, ISO 17025, cGxP
  • Access an entire sample history, display full audit trails, extract e-signature information, and much more
  • Track and manage analyst training and certifications for tests and methods, and schedule courses and re-certification
  • Manage chain of custody with electronic signatures 

Streamline And Automate Day-to-Day Laboratory Logistics

  • View key performance indicators, including bottlenecks, sample turnaround times, and out-of-specifications samples to make resource decisions
  • Assign work to analysts and equipment based on availability and workload
  • Interface to several systems for lab data sharing, including third-party systems SAP, Empower, Chromeleon, and other internal enterprise systems
  • Categorize and organize storage vessels based on the type of container, such as tanks, pipelines, barges, and associate samples and batches to vessels
  • Record capacity and geospatial location details. If your vessel is shut down for maintenance, or if it is no longer in use, you can pause or retire it
  • Configure how often to archive data based on internal retention policies and schedules 
  • Manage suppliers of raw materials and petrochemical laboratory consumables
  • Manage customer information, and set up projects for laboratory testing, including test pricing, invoicing and schedules for sampling and testing
