THINKING AHEAD THE INTELLIGENT PHARMA PRODUCTION.

The Medipak Systems companies are working in their respective core areas and increasingly with each other to find answers to the question of how the pharma industry can generate sustainable competitive advantages with the aid of Industrie 4.0. To this end, Dividella, Fargo Automation, Mediseal, Seidenader, Rondo and Werum IT Solutions are combining their process knowledge and machinery know-how using the very latest information and communications technologies.

Smart Packaging

Enabling a new level of personalized medicine and product safety

Smart Devices

The right information at the right time and place

Condition Monitoring & Predictive Analytics

Reducing downtimes and optimizing the deployment of personnel and recourses

Plug & Produce

Laying the basis for IIoT functionalities by integration using standardized interfaces to reduce complexity of integration

Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence (EMI)

For improved product quality (process stability) and productivity (process efficiency)

Smart Packaging

Smart packaging takes product personalization and product security to a new level. It concerns both communication of the pack with the patient and communication with the machines in the production process. At the same time, smart packaging increases the safety of products by incorporating tamper evidence or traceability or by recording harmful fluctuations in temperature affecting the product.

The package as an information carrier opens up new information and service options for patients and users of pharmaceutical products, such as:

  • Digital patient information leaflets
  • Audio patient information leaflets
  • Digital tamper-proof protection
  • Better product protection
  • Health management
  • Intake reminder
  • Automatic repeat order

In the packaging process, the package can communicate with packaging machines to increase OEE, i.e.:

  • Machinery settings are controlled/initiated via information on the packaging
  • Personalized production, packaging, labelling
  • Learning packaging: information is transferred to package

Smart Devices

Control devices are a key window into the machine or system. A smart mobile device enables machine operators or production managers to operate and monitor the machine or system, even remotely.  By means of the mobile, “extended” HMI, the machine operator gains significant freedom of movement can perform tasks more efficiently, resulting in higher quality.

  • Technicians, operators and supervisors can access the machine control via their smart device
  • Simplification of changeover, setup or maintenance
  • Compatible with all systems, enabling customers to use the mobile terminal of their choice

Condition Monitoring & Predictive Analytics

Moving from reactive maintenance to predictive maintenance demands that one is able not only to collect data in real time but also to interpret it meaningfully. Critical incidents are detected long before they occur and appropriate measures can be taken. Machine availability and OEE are significantly improved.

  • Machine safety and efficiency can be improved by predicting and preventing critical future events
  • Based on real time data, the status of a system is supervised and future events are predicted with a model
  • Reactive or preventive maintenance is replaced by using data mining, modeling, statistics, machine learning

Plug & Produce

Vertical integration - standardizing interfaces between MES, automation and control systems - is a fundamental prerequisite for implementing numerous Industrie 4.0 solutions. Like connecting an electronic device via a USB interface, it should be possible in the future to link a line, a system or a machine such as a packaging machine to the network, simply and straightforwardly: Plug & Produce.

  • Standardization reduces complexity of integration and enables "Plug & Produce"
  • Reduced engineering and qualification efforts in setup phase and production

Enterprise Manufacturing Intelligence (EMI)

The deployment of EMI "translates" production data into usable information for decisionmaking. The customer can make well-founded decisions which improve process stability and process efficiency, thereby increasing product quality and productivity. Production can be supervised in virtually real time and can be continuously verified.

  • Central collection and evaluation of data across different sources to improve product quality (process stability) and productivity (process efficiency)
  • Data assessment results in real time analysis, standard reports and investigative analysis
