“How can I profitably produce and release small batches?”
The key to future medical care resides in flexible and needs-based production. Here you can discover how Siemens’ digitalization solutions enable the economical production of small batches – thus paving the way for personalized medicine.
Electronic Batch Record
A medication medicine has to go through a highly complex and often very lengthy processes before it can be used to cure. In this process all manufacturing steps have to be recorded precisely. This means massive costs for manual documentation.
Siemens is paving the way to paperless manufacturing – with the integration of SIMATIC IT eBR and SIMATIC PCS 7 in real time. Electronic user guidance for manual process steps: the system generates electronic work instructions to minimize the risk of error. The employee must confirm correct implementation with an electronic signature. This ensures production reliability. The electronic batch record software solution makes documentation and review easier and more efficient – without breaching the strict standards imposed by the regulatory authorities.
Paperless manufacturing on the basis of the electronic batch record allows review by exception. This means that when a batch is released only deviations have to be reviewed assessed instead of the whole batch documentation. This makes release faster and more efficient.
Benefits at a glance:
Thus, SIMATIC IT eBR plays a key role in cost-effective implementation of the smallest batches – a major step towards personalized medicine.
Examples of successful projects relating to digitalization – take a look at some of our references here.
The Chinese pharmaceutical company Chengdu Rongsheng Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. modernized its process with a manufacturing execution system.
The blood plasma production plant in Chengdu now relies on highly modern electronic charge documentation.
As a result, it is considerably more stable and efficient.
