Pharma MES software: Körber announces the winners of its first MBR Design Challenge 2020 in India

Lüneburg, Germany / Mumbai, India, 22 December 2020. The software experts of Körber’s Business Area Pharma today announced the winners of their first MBR Design Challenge, run by the team in India. The challenge was launched in August 2020 and has received massive attention from pharma manufacturers and MES solution providers in India with more than 100 entries in total.

The aim of Körber’s MBR Design Challenge is to encourage end users to utilize Werum PAS-X MES in the most efficient way, to facilitate understanding of the system, to optimally leverage MBR development and to avoid potential design negligence on a larger scale. In addition, the Körber software experts gain further insights in the way customers use Werum PAS-X MES and the MBR design features, providing valuable feedback on how to improve user experience in the future.

All participants were expected to solve different tasks like creating a detailed MBR, finding errors in an MBR, improving a sub-optimally designed MBR and taking a quiz around MBR design and business processes. The challenge itself and the award ceremony were conducted virtually, due to the global pandemic.

After a scrutinized and thorough review process by our esteemed juries, the following participants scored highest and were presented the „MBR Design Challenge 2020 Award“ trophies for their outstanding results:
