Overview Consulting


MES: independent and tailor-made advice

Managing and steering, operating and controlling production operations in real-time is crucial in the strongly regulated pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry than in any other.

The multilayer production management system required to accomplish this operates on the process-oriented level and is referred to as a Manufacturing Execution System (MES).

We at Körber are your ideal partner when it comes to finding the appropriate MES for your company.

Goal-oriented and individual: Successful consulting is always teamwork.

MES consulting and implementation from Körber

For more than 20 years, our experts have been using their process know-how and engineering expertise to assist international customers from the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry with the topics of:

  • Process analysis and process consulting by experienced experts
  • Introduction of complete MES solutions
  • Core management support
  • Recipe consulting for single or multiple sites beyond the introduction
  • Support and maintenance of the successfully introduced system, 24/7/365 on request

As an independent consulting company, we are not tied to a solitary manufacturer. We are very familiar with the systems from leading providers , such as Werum PAS-X, Rockwell Automation PharmaSuite, Rockwell Software PMX MES, and others. Our recommendations consist of keeping an eye on your individual needs, for which we select and implement the appropriate software and hardware solutions.

The MES needs data

A Manufacturing Execution System is only as good as the data that is available to it. This includes classic data and its processing from the areas of Production Data Acquisition (PDA), machine data acquisition, and personnel data acquisition. It also covers our Business Process Management analysis and all other processes that have immediate effects on the manufacturing/production process.

In addition, further questions arise in the context of advancing digitization — How can we most effectively apply the Pharma 4.0 approaches? Can agile project development lead us to the target here? Is it the right moment to switch to a Manufacturing Execution System as a service (MES aas)? Are we solely moving to a cloud strategy?

The MES systems implemented by us typically cover the following functions:

  • Recipe management
  • Weighing & dispensing
  • Electronic Batch Recording  
  • Shop-floor warehouse management
  • Equipment management
  • In-process control
  • ERP and automation integration
  • Review and batch release

Most of the MES solutions supported by us operate with interfaces to other systems (ERP, warehouse management, supply chain solutions, line management, etc.).

If you wish to better integrate your existing MES system in the context of your Pharma 4.0 or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) project, we are happy to advise you!

So much more than Electronic Batch Recording!
