By Alessandro Cereseto

Providing a paperless solution for the life sciences/pharma industries!

We are excited to announce that the latest version Opcenter™ Execution Pharma version 6.2.3 has been released!

The 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 that Opcenter EX PH must perform, and provides flexibility in the master batch record design process.

Opcenter EX PH, which is a part of the Xcelerator™ portfolio, the comprehensive and integrated portfolio of software and services from Siemens Digital Industries Software, enables all regulated processes to be managed without paper-based procedures or documents. The system offers easy configuration and out-of-the-box functionality, allowing 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 operation procedures. It also systematically controls execution at all stages, either human operations or operations controlled by the automation layer.

Using Opcenter EX PH enables you to reliably acquire critical process data. It 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 Execution Pharma brings a lot of valuable features:

The new version comes with a lot of new enhancements. It not only enables Opcenter Execution Pharma manufacturers in the life sciences industries to achieve operational excellence, accelerate time-to-market, reduce compliance costs and improve quality and productivity, but it also helps companies to maximize the efficiency of all resources, providing user guidance, equipment allocation and operating procedures. The application programming interface (API) framework enhancement is just another one of several new features.

Benefits of Opcenter Execution Pharma 6.2.3:

  • Reduce paper usage until all processes can be handled electronically
  • Reduce development effort and risk by integrating MES and DCS
  • Standardize and harmonize processes and facilitate implementation across sites
  • Make batch-relevant information reviews faster and safer
