Discover Paperless Manufacturing With Electronic Batch Records (eBR), New Webinar Hosted by Xtalks

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 16, 2014) - This webinar will discuss how eBR helps to achieve operational and manufacturing excellence by providing a single point of guidance and control to operators. The broadcast takes place on September 26, 2014 and begins at 11am EDT (4pm BST/ UK GMT +1).

With increasing pressure on costs and new regulations, manufacturing and quality managers in the pharmaceutical industry are always looking for ways to improve their processes. An electronic batch record (eBR) solution enables the management of regulated manufacturing processes without paper. With a wider scope than a simple move from paper to glass, eBR helps to achieve operational and manufacturing excellence by providing a single point of guidance and control to operators, by enabling the electronic release of batches by exception and by centralizing information from the different parts of the manufacturing process.

Solution Overview
The eBR solution from Siemens uses different elements of the Siemens product portfolio to provide an integrated and innovative solution that enables manufacturers to embrace true paperless manufacturing. The eBR solution defines the critical parameters around the product, process, quality and resource requirements as well as the equipment related variables. There is a native integration between SIMATIC IT eBR, at the MES level, with SIMATIC PCS7 and SIMATIC Batch at the distributed control system (DCS) layer, during recipe and process configuration, during production execution and during the review. This provides an overall system that is easier to use and to implement.

Advantages of the eBR solution

  • Paperless process: eMBR can reduce paper use until the system can handle all processes electronically
  • Reduction of development effort and risk: Integration of the MES and DCS
  • Simplifies the architecture and reduces the effort associated with the interface between point solutions, lowering the total cost of ownership
  • Standardized libraries of process operations: With reusable functional blocks and parametric MBRs, pharmaceutical companies can harmonize their processes and facilitate global implementation across sites
  • Single point of review of batch-relevant information: Reviews are faster and safer and enable release by exception
