Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
Explore the key areas of this solution.
Support the formulator in creating new products, taking into account regulatory and supply chain constraints and consumer expectations. Support simulation of product performance in real time (cost, nutritional profile, viscosity, etc.).
Generate product claims, ingredient, substance, allergen declarations and nutritional fact panels.
Electronically manage project-related data in a notebook structure with a high level of flexibility and stringent data security rules. Leverage notebook principles to structure previously unstructured data.
Support the process scientist in the graphical definition of a general production recipe based on manufacturing equipment types, process instructions and formulation materials.
Involve suppliers in the raw material and packaging management process, allowing suppliers to update raw material and package specification data regularly.
Utilize a single point-of-reference for managing detailed individual and business-wide specifications of raw materials, intermediate products, semi-finished and finished products, packaging materials and utilities.
Manage laboratory workflow and optimize collection during the test process in R&D and QA/QC labs. Analyze and report quality data in these labs and on the production line.
Consumers are becoming more health and environmentally conscious and require the products they buy to be healthy and safe. They expect a greater choice of products delivered in greater array of pack types and sizes. Consumers also want premium quality products and expect low prices for standard product lines.
The industry is becoming increasingly regulated, which has an effect on product development and the supply chain. Product expectations in emerging markets are growing seamlessly fast. In response, manufacturers need to reduce time-to-market for new product introductions and improve production flexibility and efficiency to enable individualized mass production.
To achieve this, manufacturers need a solid R&D platform to capitalize on their R&D potential that offers scalable and flexible software applications to streamline and optimize all R&D-related processes and align them with manufacturing. The platform should keep the product designs and processes aligned with quality and regulatory requirements. The smooth integration and alignment of R&D and manufacturing data and processes drastically speeds up the transfer of final product designs to mainstream manufacturing.
