Innovation and collaborative, synchronized program management for new programs
With SIMATIC IT eBR, Siemens has developed a dedicated MES solution for the pharmaceutical industry that enables complete paperless manufacturing and full electronic batch recording. SIMATIC IT eBR provides advanced features for designing, streamlining and managing production operations and processes – both manual and automated – via seamless integration between the MES, automation and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.
Siemens SIMATIC IT eBR ensures efficient manufacturing through consolidating and optimizing the number of different manufacturing resources available, including equipment, people, processes and products. It provides real-time production execution as well as availability and analysis of process and quality information to help optimize production activities from order creation to finished goods.
Embedding GAMP methodologies from the ground up, SIMATIC IT eBR offers robust, pre-validated, Life Sciences-specific solutions that are fully compliant with U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations and effectively translate manufacturing processes into operational excellence.
Siemens data collection and acquisition capabilities enable you to obtain operational production data that is associated with production equipment and processes.
Get instant access to production documentation. Control records and forms including work order instructions, recipes, drawings, standard operating procedures,part programs, batch records, engineering change notices, shift-to-shift communication, as well as the ability to edit “as planned” and “as built” information.
Siemens PLM Software MES Labor Management provides the status of personnel and may include time and attendance reporting, certification tracking, as well as the ability to track production support functions performed by personnel. It automatically ensures that only qualified employees perform prescribed shop-floor and quality functions. Real-time verification fully supports regulatory and quality systems compliance. Operator Training and Certification enables you to establish manufacturing roles, define training requirements for various roles and process certification requirements, maintain training records and establish certification expirations.
With Siemens PLM Software's Maintenance Management capabilities, you can track resource usage based on elapsed and usage time and production quantities; and, based on predefined limits, ensure that production does not outpace maintenance requirements. Maintenance Management provides visibility into resource issues and a detailed history of all activities. With this level of visibility, it is possible to determine true performance values for equipment.
Siemens PLM Software MES Solutions provide the ability to manage and track the movement and storage of materials, in-process items and finished products, as well as the transfers between and within work centers.
MES delivers operations and detailed scheduling capabilities that provide the sequence and the timing of operations based on priorities and production rules associated with specific production equipment and product characteristics.
Siemens PLM Software MES solutions provide up-to-the-minute reporting of actual manufacturing operations along with a comparison to historic and expected results. Performance results include measurements as resource utilization, resource availability, product unit cycle time, conformance to schedule, and performance to standards. Performance analysis may include SPC/SQC analysis and may draw from information gathered by different control functions that measure operating parameters.
Siemens PLM Software MES solutions monitor production processes and provide decision support to operators for correcting and improving in-process functions. These functions may be intra-operational and focus specifically on machines or equipment being monitored and controlled within a single operation, as well as tracking a production process from one operation to the next.
Siemens MES production tracking capabilities provide the status of production and the disposition of work. Status information may include personnel assigned to the work; component materials used in production; current production conditions; and any alarms, rework, or other exceptions related to the product. The functionality includes the capability to record the production information allowing forward and backward traceability of components and their use within each end product.
Ensure end-to-end quality management across your manufacturing process. Focus on prevention to streamline compliance and reduce the cost of quality.
Siemens PLM Software’s digital manufacturing software capabilities for shipyard production combine a range of 3D visualization, simulation, planning and supporting data management applications.
