The Life Sciences Serialization Suite is a turnkey offer that brings harmonization between legacy production applications, such as MES and Quality systems, providing an all-inclusive track, trace and reporting solution for a line, a site, or the enterprise.
Undoubtedly, serialization has many advantages benefiting both end users and pharmaceutical manufacturers alike. Serialization enables a drug to be tracked and traced electronically as it passes through the supply chain. This means that at any point, authorities and pharmaceutical companies are able to:
Identify and stop the distribution of counterfeited drugs
Contain and track the source of contaminated drugs back to its source
Handle product recalls more efficiently and effectively
Life Sciences Serialization Suite: The Schneider Electric Value
Some pharmaceutical companies have already started implementing the serialization process. One of the biggest challenges is implementing a serialization solution with data that can be easily harmonized with existing operations management solutions, such as a Manufacturing Execution System (MES). The Life Sciences Serialization Suite by Schneider Electric is a turnkey offer that brings harmonization between legacy production applications, such as MES and Quality systems, providing an all-inclusive track, trace and reporting solution for a line, a site, or the enterprise.
Thanks to out-of-the-box integration with MES/ Quality applications, the Life Sciences Serialization Suite enables:
End-to-end Track and Trace from manufacturing through Supply Chain
Integrated analytics from production to the end user
Real-time supply chain visibility, enabling more accurate planning and scheduling decisions
With the Life Sciences Serialization Suite, speed to deployment is faster, reducing the Total Cost of Ownership for pharmaceutical companies, with less substantial changes to the underlying manufacturing systems and business systems.
Integration of serialization data back into the MES makes it possible to have real time visibility across the supply chain, from the manufacturing world, right up to the end consumer.
