PharmaSuite MES v4 improves performance and time to results Rockwell Automation is announcing its latest release of Rockwell Software PharmaSuite, version 4.0, the next generation of manufacturing execution system software specifically targeting regulated industries. Leveraging more than 20 years of experience in pharmaceutical manufacturing, Rockwell Software PharmaSuite enhancements set a new standard for lower risk, lower cost and time to results while meeting the regulatory requirements found in the life sciences industry.

John Genovesi, vice president, Information Software and Process Business, Rockwell Automation, says: “The enhancements to Rockwell Software PharmaSuite reinforce our commitment to the life sciences industry. The new version offers significant performance, usability and deployment advantages enabling our customers to reduce cost of compliance and improve their manufacturing capabilities.”

Rockwell Software PharmaSuite contains a comprehensive set of functions that address the most common applications, such as dispensing, quality and electronic batch recording. The software suite allows regulated manufacturers to meet their operational goals and productivity requirements in a consistent and predictable way. The software tracks material, equipment and personnel involved in the manufacturing process and maintains a complete electronic batch record.

Rockwell Software PharmaSuite is based on S88 and S95 standards, which allows for better integration with other enterprise systems involved in manufacturing operations. The software suite is built on the FactoryTalk ProductionCentre platform, proven in multiple installations across different industries and scales of deployments. It leverages a service-oriented architecture for cost-effective, flexible deployment and integration with business and automation systems. Its object-oriented design makes it simple and quick to build and modify applications, and systematically deploy them across multiple sites.

Janice Abel, principal consultant for ARC Advisory Group, notes: “Rockwell Software PharmaSuite offers a comprehensive solution for the supply chain and manufacturing that can be used for collaboration and integration to enforce quality and compliance, reduce costs and increase efficiencies in the life sciences industries.”

Intelligent Migration

Vladimir Preysman, chief software strategist, Rockwell Automation, says: “From the very beginning of PharmaSuite development we embarked on a path of relentless innovation in pursuit of time to results for every user. With every new release we broke limitations in performance, usability and deployment time previously known in life science manufacturing execution systems. Release 4.0 takes this tradition even further with introduction of Intelligent Migration and Modeling Support in recipe authoring, and extensive enhancements in performance and content extension capabilities. We are especially proud of our Intelligent Migration, which allows customers in regulated industries to adopt our technology innovations while minimising cost of validation and disruption to operations.”
