We are excited to announce that the latest version Opcenter™ Execution Pharma 6.2.2 has been released!

Opcenter™ Execution Pharma software (Opcenter EX PH), formerly known as Simatic IT® eBR, offers native integration between the manufacturing execution system (MES) and the distributed control system (DCS) layer. This expedites the design, execution and review steps Opcenter EX PH must perform and provides flexibility in the master batch record design process.

Opcenter EX PH enables all regulated processes to be managed without paper-based procedures or documents. The system offers easy configuration and out-of-the-box functionality and 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, Opcenter EX PH optimizes batch manufacturing processes and helps streamline resources, such as user guidance, equipment allocation and standard operation procedures. It also systematically controls execution at all stages, whether human operations or operations controlled by the automation layer.

Opcenter EX PH enables you to reliably acquire critical process data. It also allows forward and backward searches using genealogy and audit trail tools, significantly reducing manufacturing, review and release times and enabling faster time-to-market. Opcenter is a part of Xcelerator, a comprehensive and integrated portfolio of software and services from Siemens Digital Industries Software.
