All track & trace processes covered
The Arvato CSDB APAC Edition encompasses track & trace processes for pharmaceutical production that can be divided into five levels. At levels 1 and 2, every product package is printed with an unique serial number and the relevant batch data. Optionally, several packaging units can be combined by means of an aggregation process. At these levels, companies benefit from the solution’s great flexibility with regard to the integration of serialization hardware. “Körber offers appropriate devices and machines for every level, although we are of course able to simply incorporate individual components as well as entire levels from other suppliers,” says Völlinger. At level 3, the smart software manages serialization, packaging, and aggregation processes from the first two levels and communicates with parallel or supraordinate systems, such as the manufacturing execution system (MES) or the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. At level 4, the serial numbers are generated and centrally administered in a management system. Data exchanges with the outside world take place at level 5. Examples include exchanges with business partners’ systems or with national verification systems. All of the levels are available as modular components and can be easily adapted to the companies’ requirements and their existing system landscapes.
