Pharmaceutical industry solutions:

The success of our customers is based, among other things, on the tried-and-tested functions of our in-house developed process control system Plant iT. The integrated functions provide intelligent solutions to meet the following requirements:

  • Batch systems according to ISA S88 for batch and continuous processes
  • Order lists for production, cleaning and filling
  • Recipe-controlled program sequences
  • Uniform material and raw material management
  • Batch traceability (pre and post-tracking) to EU Regulation 178/2002
  • Company-wide management reporting
  • MES functionalities for planning, guidance, analysis and evaluation of production processes
  • Production-based documents and logs for company-wide analyses
  • Electronic batch recording for batch-related messages and graphs
  • Electronic signature
  • Recipe optimisation
  • FDA-compliant reports for adherence to international regulations
  • Label and barcode handling
  • Technical automation classes for network and device diagnosis of PLCs, clients, servers and decentralised peripheral equipment
  • Technological automation classes for materials handling technology and route control, and for frequency converters (e.g. Danfoss VLT, SEW, Simovert)
  • Technological automation classes for weighing technology (e.g. SIWAREX U/M, Schenck, Disocont/Disomat, Systec IT 9000, weigh scales software)
  • Interfaces for the connection of various ERP systems (e.g. SAP/R3, CHARISMA, FOSS)
  • Interfaces for connection to laboratory management systems (LIMS), e.g. Unilab
  • Interfaces for the connection of existing weighing systems

Our control system Plant iT is characterised by a high level of standardisation, integration and the elimination of unnecessary interfaces (lean thinking). Our key goal is the automatic generation of electronic batch records and continuous material tracking throughout the entire production process. Thanks to the integration of MES and PCS in a single system, we achieve greater production quality combined with reduced plant running costs. Besides expansions and new plants (green field projects), our process control system Plant iT is particularly suitable for the migration of old plants, as it supports the programmable logic controls (PLCs) from Siemens and Rockwell Automation. Another major advantage of Plant iT is that end customers as well as machine and plant suppliers only have to be familiar with just one system, irrespective of the subordinate control platforms from other manufacturers.
