Electronic Batch Record

Release batches safer and faster

A medication medicine has to go through a highly complex and often very lengthy processes before it can be used to cure. In this process all manufacturing steps have to be recorded precisely. This means massive costs for manual documentation.

The integration of manual and automated processes paves the way to paperless manufacturing

Siemens is paving the way to paperless manufacturing – with the integration of SIMATIC IT eBR and SIMATIC PCS 7 in real time. Electronic user guidance for manual process steps: the system generates electronic work instructions to minimize the risk of error. The employee must confirm correct implementation with an electronic signature. This ensures production reliability. The electronic batch record software solution makes documentation and review easier and more efficient – without breaching the strict standards imposed by the regulatory authorities. 

Paperless manufacturing on the basis of the electronic batch record allows review by exception. This means that when a batch is released only deviations have to be reviewed  assessed instead of the whole batch documentation. This makes release faster  and more efficient.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Prevent and reduce errors with more reliable process execution
  • Reduce review effort with “Review by Exception”
  • Electronic recording and documentation of all production data
  • Implementation costs and risks are reduced

Thus, SIMATIC IT eBR plays a key role in cost-effective implementation of the smallest batches – a major step towards personalized medicine.
