Pharmaceutical companies face strict government regulations, expiring patents, and increasing pressure from generics. To adapt to changing regulations and business needs, companies need more secure, efficient ways to access shared data and collaborate across multiple locations.

Pharmaceutical companies worldwide use the OSIsoft® PI System® to provide the real-time data infrastructure and collaboration tools they need to meet key challenges, including:

  • 21 CFR Part 11 compliance
  • Manufacturing data management
  • Risk mitigation
  • Optimizing production
  • Centralizing knowledge

Mitigate risk and comply with regulations more efficiently.

  • Reduce human error, spend less time generating reports, and comply with regulations through automated documentation.
  • Receive detailed, accurate, historical reports that show when and how batch processing anomalies occured and prevent their recurrence.
  • Approve batch report sections during the manufacturing process to expedite batch releases.
  • Automate manual lab documentation processes for drug discovery and clinical trials.
  • Ensure production lines produce drugs complying with quality and regulatory standards at all times.
