Supporting the weighing process while deployed in the cloud

We are excited to announce that the latest Opcenter Execution Pharma version 2311 has been released!

Leveraging Opcenter EX PH, which is part of the Siemens Xcelerator business platform of software, hardware and services, enables users to regulate and manage processes without paper-based procedures or documents. With Opcenter EX PH, you can easily configure and leverage out-of-the-box (OOTB) functionality to facilitate design processes, even if the user does not have specific information technology (IT) skills.

On-premises weighing bar graph for cloud deployment

In Opcenter EX PH 2311, we enable advanced weighing processes while deploying the system in the cloud. With the remote weighing bar graph, we provide an advanced user experience (UX) for weighing operators. The bar graph shows that the whole system is installed on-premises. When the operator starts the weighing process, from the system deployed in the cloud, the remote weighing bar graph, installed on-premises, pops up on the operator screen.

From the beginning, the remote weighing bar graph establishes communication with the scales, side by side, for the operator.  The remote weighing bar graph supports the weighing process, guiding the operator while communicating with the scales to acquire the weight in real-time. Once the user finalizes the weighing process, the remote weighing bar graph sends back the weight and all relevant information to the MES deployed in the cloud.
