Best of both worlds: PAS-X MES and STEPLogic WMS

Körber offers a complete material flow and production control solution from a single source with its manufacturing execution system Werum PAS-X MES and its warehouse management system STEPLogic. A real milestone for the E2E efficiency of pharmaceutical production sites.

A software solution that controls the production of drugs has long been a decisive success factor for the pharmaceutical industry. However, it is equally important to organize the distribution and transport of the required raw materials to the production line efficiently and in an intelligent way. But how do the two software systems interact?

The combined offering of Körber's software solutions Werum PAS-X Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and STEPLogic is an important contribution towards end-to-end solutions (E2E) through comprehensive system integration. The Körber Business Areas Pharma (PAS-X MES) and Supply Chain (STEPLogic) jointly offer the systems from one single source.

This will result in considerable advantages, particularly for small to medium-sized companies, which previously relied on different suppliers in each case. "The implementation time is reduced by up to 50% as a result of the integrated offering," explains Lars Hornung, Senior Principal Alliances & Technology Partners Software in Körber's Business Area Pharma. Especially in the early phase of implementation, a lot of time is saved and the solution is ready for use more quickly. The total cost of acquisition is also likely to be lower. For customers, it is an immense advantage if such systems can be integrated into an existing system landscape by a provider. "Particularly for pharmaceutical companies that have medium-sized production sites but also high requirements for efficient and reliable control of the E2E process that are common in the industry, the combination package of PAS-X MES and STEPLogic is highly attractive," adds Wiek de Winter, Director of Professional Services Consulting, Körber Business Area Supply Chain.

The two systems will utilize real-time interfaces (web services) to interact with each other, triggered by specific actions occurring within either system. For example, if STEPLogic places a pallet of picked products in a designated staging area for production or packaging, this will instantly notify PAS-X MES that the pallet with the specific products is available for pickup. Similarly, after the manufacturing process is complete, a finished product pallet will be positioned in a staging area for STEPLogic to collect, with PAS-X MES issuing a notification for this event. “These are merely two instances of integration points, as there will be numerous others,” says Wiek de Winter.

Interaction of STEPLogic and PAS-X MES along the pharmaceutical production process

Werum PAS-X MES has been one of the world's leading MES solutions in the pharmaceutical industry for years. It controls, monitors, and documents all relevant processes digitally and in real time throughout the entire manufacturing cycle, thus reducing error rates and manufacturing costs. The benefits: shortened time-to-market and increased efficiency. PAS-X MES covers the entire manufacturing cycle of the pharmaceutical, biotech, and cell & gene therapy industries - from process development to commercial production and packaging. The production management system includes all important functions for manufacturing in a modular way. It can be implemented out of the box and can smoothly integrate all surrounding IT systems via standard interfaces.

STEPLogic is a warehouse management system developed by Körber's Business Area Supply Chain that adapts quickly and flexibly to new requirements. It can be personalized and tailored to specific requirements in a very short time. It is particularly suitable for small and medium-sized companies, which can work agilely and cost-efficiently at any time with STEPLogic.

The combined offer of PAS-X MES and STEPLogic is currently being tested for handling and implementation in a pilot project. Potentially interested parties can already obtain information about implementation options, start-up times and further details from their contacts at Körber.
