We are excited to announce that the latest Opcenter Execution Pharma version 2211 has been released!

Opcenter Execution Pharma, which is a part of the Siemens Xcelerator portfolio, the comprehensive and integrated portfolio of software, hardware and services, enables all regulated processes to be managed without paper-based procedures or documents. The system offers easy configuration and an out-of-the-box (OOTB) functionality, which allows users to design any process without specific information technology (IT) skills.

Fully compliant with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) regulations, the system optimizes batch manufacturing processes and helps streamline resources, such as user guidance, equipment allocation and standard operating procedures. It also systematically controls execution at all stages, either human operations or operations controlled by the automation layer.
