The mission of our software team is to develop state of the art software solutions which enable IBA to deliver the best possible service for its systems deployed all over the world. The Industrial Solutions business unit of IBA helps customer to achieve the irradiation of their products. You will be in charge of the development of our PCS system

A Process Control System (PCS) is a type of software that is designed to monitorcontrol, and optimize industrial processes. In the case of IBA Industrial Services, the PCS is used to control the irradiation process of customer products. The PCS collects data from various sensors and instruments that are used to measure key process parameters, such as speed, current, systems state, and radiation levels. It then analyzes this data in real-time to ensure that the process is operating within specified limits and that the product is being irradiated to the required level. In addition to monitoring and controlling the process, the PCS also generates reports and alerts that can be used to identify potential issues or opportunities for process improvement. This information can be used to make data-driven decisions that can help to optimize the irradiation process and improve the quality and consistency of the products that are produced. IBA has an existing installed base of PCS to maintain and upgrade and a lot of new installation with new features to be developed.
