The formulated industry, representing both consumer packaged goods as well as process-related products, is under tremendous pressure and faces several important challenges.

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.

Solution Capabilities

ALM-PLM Interoperability

ALM-PLM interoperability fosters cross-domain collaboration by seamlessly integrating application lifecycle management (ALM) for software development with the product lifecycle management (PLM) environment you use to manage other areas of the product.

Formula Workbench

Supports the formulator in developing new formulations taking into account regulatory constraints, consumer expectations, supply chain constraints and allows simulation of product performance (cost, nutritional profile, viscosity) in real-time.

Laboratory Information Management

Enables rapid exchange of quality information along the production workflow, covering multiple sites and involving different departments.

Process Flow Modeler

Supports the process scientist in the graphical definition of a general production recipe, based on manufacturing equipment types, process instructions and formulation materials.   

R&D Data Management

Supports the electronic management of project-related data in a notebook structure with a high level of flexibility and stringent data security rules. Enables easy capture of experimental data.

Regulatory Modules

Automatically generates product claims, ingredient, substance, allergen declarations and nutritional fact panels, starting from the product composition. Ensures alignment with local and global regulatory requirements.

Specification Management

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.

Supplier Collaboration

Involves suppliers in the raw material & packaging management process, allowing suppliers to update their raw material & package specification data on a regular basis.
