Emerson upgrades manufacturing software
July 2017, IT in Manufacturing
Enhancements to Syncade MES Workflow v4.9 application provide operators with an action-oriented, efficient, and secure environment for faster and more precise manufacturing recipe execution.
Emerson Automation Solutions has released the Syncade manufacturing execution system (MES) Workflow version 4.9 application to help life science manufacturers reduce time to market and streamline batch records and compliance. Workflow version 4.9 includes a faster and more dynamic user environment including embedded step-by-step guidance that gives operators the tools needed to execute recipes accurately.
New capabilities in Workflow provide operators with one-touch access to critical information such as equipment readiness and previews of upcoming recipe steps. In addition, operators can collaborate by logging questions or comments in the Workflow application.
The new version makes regulatory compliance easier because Syncade Workflow v4.9 prevents operators from deviating from a validated process. Electronic signatures enable recipe compliance by tracking and documenting approved activities.
“Emerson continues to solve life science industry needs with innovations such as the latest release of Syncade Workflow,” says John Nita, vice president sales and product management for life sciences. “We are committed to help manufacturers achieve their operational goals, and Workflow helps them achieve faster compliance and deliver quality medicines to patients sooner.”
The latest release adds a web-based application and offers flexible access via tablets and computers as well as faster data transfer and user-input response. In addition, because Workflow is a thin-client application, installation on workstations is eliminated and application maintenance is reduced.
