With two site locations in the U.K. and U.S., along with an international presence in over 100 countries, this pharmaceutical company is very familiar with the demands of fulfilling global requirements. This scope, taken along with an expansive network responsible for complex formulations and batching for exacting quality and efficiency standards, required a solution that could scale and systematically optimize clinical production demands.
Visibility into materials required for clinical manufacturing presented a serious problem. This was further complicated by the needs of real-time logistics for materials, component transfers, traceability, consumption management, inventory adjustment, and administration of storage locations and environmental conditions down to sub-batches. Other issues existed regarding quantity tracing, weight calculations, expiration dates, and the absence of a material rejection capability if the sub-batch was suspect due to identified questionable characteristics.
To systematically alleviate each concern, AX for Pharma 365™’s team of solution architects, engineers and business analysts did a comprehensive discovery that led to the prescription of a series of best practices and solution modules to address these challenges. The solutions included AXP365 Advanced Warehouse Management™, AXP365 Advanced Quality Management™, AXP365 Weighing & Dispensing, and AXP365 Extended ERP Pharma. In order to effectively build a coherent framework for these new functionalities, AX for Pharma 365™ provided a team of seasoned subject matter experts that designed a streamlined clinical supplies management process that was implemented.
