COVID-19: How we support you – online and remotely

We understand your situation in these unprecedented times: you have to shift your priorities, staff are missing, and there are new and urgent tasks. MES systems are more mission-critical than ever!

Werum is here to help and support you in the most flexible and easy way. Together with you, we want to help save lives.

Looking for ways to digitize your manufacturing processes and enable your workforce to work remotely?

If you are thinking about initiating or even starting an MES project to be well prepared for the upswing after the crisis:

We can help you to evaluate your project remotely and to start your project planning phase by consulting you with reference to tasks, such as:

  • Pre-study & business benefit analysis 
  • URS development
  • Business process descriptions
  • IT blue print 
  • MBR prototyping in sandbox system
  • Infrastructure consulting

Looking for support for your PAS-X MES project or running system? 

Has your MES project stalled because many of your employees work from home and resources are short due to urgent tasks?

We can help you to execute your PAS-X MES project in a completely remote way and to provide and backfill critical resources. This could e. g. apply to the following project tasks:

  • Remote Fit phases
  • Remote qualification & validation services
  • Remote system administration, configuration and parametrization
  • Remote MBR support
  • Remote training
  • Remote system health check
  • Remote services: Our project teams provide remote services to successfully implement and operate your MES project. In addition, we could backfill missing roles to support tasks to e. g. administer, configure and parameterize your PAS-X system – to “keep your production up and running”.

  • Remote MBR support: We can help you to design, create and verify your MBRs – relieving bottleneck resources and supporting you with urgent tasks.

How a state-of-the-art MES saves time & effort and avoids risk in your pharma factory

Paper-based manufacturing processes in pharma or biotech are slow, error-prone and costly. On average 20% of batch deviations are caused by human error!

An MES helps you to avoid these shortcomings. It guides your operators through the production process and controls every step. QA reviews batch records in a matter of minutes instead of hours!

From Industry 4.0 to Pharma 4.0: ISPE Article of the Year

The current submission-based control strategy does not consider GMP, facilities, equipment and other production-specific controls to mitigate risk and ensure an effective, reliable production process. Transforming today’s control strategy to commercial manufacturing by technology transfer and scaling requires a best practice methodology that will change the current control strategy into a holistic production control strategy.

In their article, which received the ISPE Article of the Year award, the authors Christoph Herwig, Christian Wölbeling and Thomas Zimmer identify the need for a redefined control strategy implementation methodology.
