Automation in a Validated Environment Fuels Big Business Rewards

Integrated building management solutions incorporating comprehensive electronic record keeping and signature capabilities can go a long way to fulfilling the pharmaceutical industry's threefold mantra of regulatory compliance, productivity gain and faster time-to-market. Never before has there been so much emphasis on the environment within which critical-to-quality processes for pharmaceuticals, biotechnology products and medical devices take place. In research labs, manufacturing areas and warehouses, conditions such as temperature, humidity, pressure, air particulate levels and access must be monitored, safely archived and easily retrieved for reporting purposes and audit - local, European and US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) audit alike.

But how is it best to implement compliant environmental control in a complex and mission-critical framework? Pharmaceutical manufacturers across Europe are always hungry for new, smarter ways of working. I am asked the same questions wherever I go:

How can we use raw data feeds to eliminate internal bottlenecks?
How can we make the shift from paper-based to automated, electronic records and signature?
How can we use building automation technology to refine processes, reduce costs and speed time-to-market?
How can we integrate FDA-compliant environmental control solutions into an enterprise-wide pharmaceutical operation?
