Overcome Industry Difficulties

Whether pharmaceutical manufacturers are massively investing in pre-clinical development and clinical trials or providing the generic drug and OTC medicines, these businesses are looking to streamline and optimize the various financial and manufacturing methods run at their plants or their contract manufacturing plants to manufacture superior products more efficiently. This enables manufacturers to increase sales volumes to their customer base of healthcare professionals, physicians, commercial stores, and pharmacies.

From a financial and liability perspective, there are pharmaceutical companies that are organized into various divisions or business entities, ranging from sales to manufacturer to distributor to marketing, where manufacturing and distribution may be managed by one or more outside contract manufacturers. Each business partner wants to manage their own process requirements (e.g., product development, production) and wants the means to easily transfer ownership of products and share data amongst partners.

Here are some of the problem that was faced and overcome by pharmaceutical customers employing BatchMaster ERP:

Maintaining a complete set of Master Batch and Batch Manufacturing Records: Growing pharmaceutical manufacturers who rely on paper-based and people-intensive processes to document every step in their production processes are finding it ever-increasing challenging to comply with ever more stringent FDA regulatory mandates, especially in terms of managing Master Batch and Batch Manufacturing records. These manufacturers are looking for an electronic method to efficiently document and associate formulas, production jobs, procedures, processes, transactions, and journals in a way that is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11 Regulations.

Ensure Product Efficacy: Formulas sometimes challenge product developers for tablets, capsules, powder, and liquid blends that contain one or more active ingredients with varying potency levels. They are looking for help in quickly and easily adjusting formulas to reduce costs while maintaining their effectiveness.

Ensure Product Quality: Pharmaceutical manufacturers want preventative controls to quickly and effectively test products and ensure optimal equipment settings. It also has the means to quickly investigate and determine the impact of all encountered quality issues and then adjust existing settings and procedures.

Ensure Product ePedigree: Lot traceability is of significant concern due to the impact of these products on the lives of the public. The creation and assignment of lot number at the time of receiving and production is one challenge faced, so automating these processes is critical. When performing a product recall, the ability to quickly track and trace suspect products from suppliers to customers, from customers to suppliers or anywhere within production in minutes, is necessary.

Optimize Production Scheduling: Demand planning and production scheduling of various stages, such as mixing, encapsulating, compressing, polishing, and packaging, are critical, whether manufacturing makes to stock or make to order. Companies that make their gel encapsulations or outsource their production need to effectively calculate the weight requirements, then schedule their production with the liquid blends that will fill them.

Increase Margins and Profitability: To increase the bottom line, pharmaceutical companies need to analyze they are expected vs. actual costs from conception thru production to customer shipments.

Managers want better visibility to raw material costs, based upon last purchased, standard, and projected prices, and accurately capture and track the static, scalable, and tiered costs associated with labor, energy, and other resources. Besides, purchasing wants to negotiate better terms for those raw materials for which demand planning has determined a consolidated demand. And to increase the top line, sales recognize that they can retain existing customers and gain new ones with demonstrated predictability, scalability, and compliance across their company’s operations.
