Körber and COPA-DATA partner to enhance MES integration for filling lines in the pharmaceutical industry

Lüneburg, Germany / Salzburg, Austria, 30 May 2023. COPA-DATA joins the Körber Ecosystem Partner program and receives the "PAS-X MSI Plug & Produce Ready" certification for its zenon software platform. 

zenon is a software platform that helps pharmaceutical manufacturers automate their manufacturing facilities and manage data more effectively. COPA-DATA has developed strong functionality as well as comprehensive connectivity that makes it easy to integrate shop floor machines into higher systems, such as a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) - for greater efficiency, better control and comprehensive documentation of manufacturing processes.

The Werum PAS-X MES Suite from Körber controls, monitors and documents manufacturing processes digitally and in real time. With just a few mouse clicks, customers can seamlessly integrate Körber's best-of-breed ecosystem solutions from partner companies with PAS-X MSI Plug & Produce. This no-code integration uses standardized message-based communication between MES and shop floor equipment as outlined in the ISPE Plug & Produce Working Group's Concept Paper. The partnership between Körber and COPA-DATA makes it possible to implement out-of-the-box projects with zenon as a configurable interface to PAS-X MES.

In addition, the COPA-DATA team has already built up the required skill set for both, technology and business processes. We are pleased to have them join the PAS-X MSI Plug & Produce partner program," says Lars Hornung, Senior Principal Alliances & Technology Partners Software, Körber Business Area Pharma.
