The ‘Add’, ‘Edit’ and ‘Delete’ buttons will only be displayed if the user has the correct access privileges.

3. Enter the fields as follows:

Batch No The ‘Batch No’ field will sequentially increment from the previous batch number and serves as a unique reference to identify the batch. The batch numbering may not be sequential as it will reflect the batch sequence in the flow computer. This field is not editable.

4. For Ship Loading Batching

Additional fields will be required for ship loading systems:

Ship Name Enter the name of the ship that will receive the batch.

Repeat steps 2 to 5 to add as many batches as required.

Note: When running ship loading, the batches must be started manually. See the ‘Starting a Batch’ section for more details. Pipeline batching is continuous and will start the next batch automatically when the previous batch is ended.
