AstraZeneca North Ryde, Australia uses Werum’s PAS-X MES to replace SAP PI Sheets
AstraZeneca Australia uses Werum’s PAS-X MES at their site in North Ryde, just north-west of Sydney, as the leading IT system in production. The goal of the PAS-X implementation was to replace the custom SAP Process Instruction Sheets which supported the end-to-end manufacturing, QA and QC operations and electronic batch recording – without any disruption to running operations and the supply of critical products. PAS-X also provides a standard interface to the new regional AsiaSAP ERP system.

Article: What is Pharma 4.0? Why is it important and how it will enable the factory of the future?
Many people will have heard of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Industry 4.0 and perhaps are aware that these technology driven initiatives are already starting to disrupt traditional manufacturing methods, equipments and processes. But how relevant is Industry 4.0 for the Pharmaceutical industry and how we will get there?
One challenge with these concepts is that we think of them in their ‘end state’ where a complex and futuristic combination of robotics, automation, embedded internet connected sensors and integrated enterprise software are running our processes and making decisions in real time and replacing logic that is currently determined through human involvement. This amazing vision can be difficult to grasp and specifically in the Pharmaceutical industry then such dramatic disruption can be uncomfortable as we must meet the stringent requirements of the GMP regulations through careful control on our processes, and careful testing and control over software that is used to produce critical medicines.
This article seeks to break down and introduce what the Pharma 4.0 initiative is about and explain the steps that companies are already taking today to advance along the journey towards the factory of the future.
From Industry 4.0 to Pharma 4.0: ISPE Article of the Year
The current submission-based control strategy does not consider GMP, facilities, equipment and other production-specific controls to mitigate risk and ensure an effective, reliable production process. Transforming today’s control strategy to commercial manufacturing by technology transfer and scaling requires a best practice methodology that will change the current control strategy into a holistic production control strategy.
In their article, which received the ISPE 2017 Article of the Year award, the authors Christoph Herwig, Christian Wölbeling and Thomas Zimmer identify the need for a redefined control strategy implementation methodology.
