PAS-X KPI: Monitor the pulse of production
Watch our new video and learn how to improve your pharma OEE!
“The majority of pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers have insufficient visibility into their manufacturing performance.
Werum’s PAS-X KPI product greatly improves shop floor transparency, helping managers make smart decisions.”

KPI: Your shop floor performance booster
Real-time monitoring of KPIs such as OEE / Lean, standalone software product dedicated to pharma and biotech industries / Seamless integration of ERP and equipment level / Cross-plant comparisons of performance data
For efficient pharmaceutical manufacturing, it is essential for both operators and supervisors on the shop floor and production site managers to constantly monitor operating data. Werum’s PAS-X KPI is a lean, standalone software product for live monitoring of production and packaging lines to improve the shop floor performance of pharma and biotech facilities. PAS-X KPI provides real-time key performance indicators (KPI) to optimize processes or equipment.
Paving the way for operational excellence
Six reasons to use PAS-X KPI from Werum
PAS-X KPI is the only KPI/OEE tool dedicated solely to the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries.
Integrated data from level 2 to 4
PAS-X KPI is capable of seamlessly integrating data both from the ERP level and the machine level at the shop floor.
PAS-X KPI allows comparisons and evaluations of operating data at production lines in different facilities, all at one single user interface.
PAS-X KPI is browser-based and supports multiple delivery methods, including site installation and enterprise cloud.
Lean product, ready to start
PAS-X KPI is easy to deploy because it is a standalone product independent from PAS-X MES.
In a trial “proof of concept” installation pharma and biopharma manufacturers can test PAS-X KPI in their own production environment for a stated term.
Who benefits from PAS-X KPI?
PAS-X KPI offers a single, unifying source point of data as everyone on the shop floor has the same performance information.
Increased profitability: software-aided decision making to facilitate continuous improvement processes
Easier realization of production targets: benefit from the ability to correct potential performance issues before they become functionally problematic
Increased transparency: live monitoring of individual production performance and status
Live visualization of shop floor performance / OEE
On the shop floor, PAS-X KPI automatically collects process data related to Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in real time. Results are displayed on various monitors in easily understandable terms to enable quick decision making. Operators and supervisors can continuously view the up-to-date status of their lines, including production goals and target achievements. If data is not provided by the equipment, the PAS-X KPI Solution also allows operators and supervisors to manually enter the causes of interruptions, such as setup times, pausing times or maintenance.
Software-aided decision making
Plant managers benefit from standardized reports with aggregated operating figures for analyses in larger contexts. For example, the OEEs for the same product manufactured on different equipment can be compared easily. The gapless recording of process data in the system facilitates continuous improvements in terms of efficiency, productivity and profitability.
First class usability: Device-optimized design
PAS-X KPI comes with device-specific dialogs. They are optimized for large screens, like those used on production and packaging lines, and also for tablets used by supervisors. The graphical user interface has a well-structured and color-coded design that draws the operator's attention to essential data. Monitors on the shop floor display all important KPIs in real time so that operators and supervisors can view the status of their line on an ongoing basis.
Support of all manufacturing lines
PAS-X KPI supports all pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturing lines - e. g. for tableting, filling, packaging etc. KPIs such as Availability, Effectiveness and Quality are showcased together, along with the related OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), in real time and at their points of generation. Operators will be able to directly monitor the performance of their line on mobile monitors or on equipment HMI screens.
Pharma and biotech manufacturers benefit from a powerful and user-friendly KPI tool directly at their tableting, filling or packaging line, helping them maximize manufacturing performance.
Mobile terminals with PAS-X KPI pre-installed
Through its partnership with hardware provider Systec & Solutions, Werum customers can obtain mobile terminals with PAS-X KPI already pre-installed. This plug & play option makes it even easier to get started.
