Integrated Engineering for plant planning and construction
Acceleration from development to manufacturing to patient
Global competition, shorter innovation cycles, increasingly stringent legal regulations for drug safety and environment protection, as well as a rising demand for individualized products pose enormous challenges for plant engineers and operators in the pharmaceutical industry throughout the entire plant lifecycle. Ramping up production in the quantities needed and accelerating clinical trials in the timeframes required to combat new diseases is one of the biggest challenges for pharmaceutical companies. Integrated Engineering is a major building block that helps you accelerate your manufacturing capabilities.
Integrated Engineering along the process life cycleFrom process design to integrated automation and plant operations: there are numerous phases and tasks along a pharmaceutical plant’s lifecycle. Every task presents specific challenges for engineers and operators. Integrated Engineering offers the right fix for every challenge.
Speeding up the engineering from concept to design
Integrated engineering by COMOS is used to design process engineering (FEED, PFD, P&ID) and ensures an efficient Asset Lifecycle Management. The platform serves for the electrical engineering of plants all the way to complete automation: it covers electrical, measurement, control, and regulation (EMSR) processes. Interfaces to SIMATIC PCS 7, SIMATIC PCS neo and SIMIT make it possible to generate functional plans, sequences, and simulation charts based on common standards.
Facilitating modular plant design
Modular plant design increases flexibility and speed to quickly adapt to new requirements. For example, machine and plant manufacturer GEA is using Siemens technology and the module type package (MTP) industry standard to build specific modules for the pharmaceutical industry that can be easily integrated into existing plants.
