Lüneburg, Germany, 15 May 2018 – Digitization of processes, integration of software and equipment, operating concepts for the pharmaceutical shop floor or big data and analysis – Werum IT Solutions will present new answers for the digital pharmaceutical factory of the future at Achema from 11–15 June 2018.

“A Manufacturing Execution System, MES, is the first and most important step for pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers on the way to digitizing their production,” says Lars Hornung, Senior Director Global Sales & Marketing, Werum IT Solutions GmbH. “With live demos and interactive presentations, we will inform customers about the latest innovations around our PAS-X MES and Electronic Batch Recording – for example, KPI/OEE, Track & Trace and Finite Scheduling. A world first is PAS-X as a Service: our market-leading MES as a cloud-based solution. It allows pharmaceutical and biotech companies to save resources for their own IT data center and concentrate on their core business.”

Another trade fair highlight is the easy integration of software and equipment using PAS-X MSI Plug & Produce. The machines on the shop floor and Werum’s PAS-X can communicate directly with each other via a standardized, message-based interface. It allows to reduce the integration effort up to 75%. For this solution, Werum was awarded as Best Of at the Industriepreis 2018.

Innovative operating concepts which we know from everyday life will improve the pharmaceutical production and increase its efficiency. Together with its partners, Werum is developing solutions to integrate these concepts into its manufacturing IT solutions. At Achema, the visitors will learn more about the use of augmented reality and wearables in the pharmaceutical production.

With its solutions for Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence (EMI), Werum will show how pharmaceutical and biotech companies can generate knowledge from their production data. This will enable supervisors and factory managers to obtain a deeper insight in the production in real time, as a basis for well-informed decisions and the optimization of processes.

Werum will be present at Achema both with its own stand (hall 11.1-A75) and at Körber Medipak Systems' stand, together with its sister companies (hall 3.1-J72).
