Lowering costs in regulated world? Yes!

Weighing and dispensing ranks as one of the critical steps in life sciences
industries. Companies are striving to eliminate the potential for error
from the manufacturing process. FactoryTalk Pharma Suite Dispense
helps ensure regulatory compliance while reducing risk within weighing
and dispensing operations.
Operators are guided through complex processes with pre-defined
workflows. Barcode identification helps allow the use of correct
material and equipment. Material, equipment and personnel activities
are systematically linked into a single record of production. A built-in

cleaning eliminated manual documentation, resulting in decreased

Changing economic pressures and regulatory requirements present

challenges for most any pharmaceutical company. At one midsize
pharmaceutical company, the pressures ran deep as the production
manager struggled to find a solution providing an easier way of
tracking activities. FactoryTalk Pharma Suite gave the production
manager the answer. The comprehensive weigh and dispense
application, utilizing the predefined weighing workflows, resulted
in a decrease in manual errors and miscalculations. These weighing
workflows ensured that only material specified in the bill of materials
(BOM) was used. The electronic signature requested after each

Automating these important activities saved me time and the

company money, said the production manager. We experienced a
75% reduction in manual data recording activities. That allowed us
to re-allocate 50% of the weighing personnel. The guidance of the
system through complex weighing processes significantly reduced the
manufacturing risks. That led to a more reliable output and helped us
to reduce WIP. After experiencing the functionality that FactoryTalk
Pharma Suite provides, the company is now better able to comply
with the changing economy and meet all regulatory requirements at
a lowered total cost of ownership.
