Bayer HealthCare runs Active Ingredient Production with PAS-X
Third MES by Werum in Operation at Wuppertal Site
Lueneburg, Germany, October 31, 2006 –
A third active ingredient plant
has been furnished with a PAS-X system by Werum Software & Systems
at the Bayer HealthCare production site of Wuppertal-Elberfeld (Germany).

With its core function of Electronic Batch Recording (EBR) the MES guides the user through the manufacturing process and checks manually acquired data for plausibility when entered. The PAS-X system continually monitors the stipulated process flow; it also offers forecast functions to show deviations at a very early stage and documents unexpected events. This is the basis for Bayer to conduct statistical evaluations enabling them to continually improve the quality of their processes.
PAS-X is designed to ensure complete, GMP-compliant, and searchable documentation and archiving of production runs. All batch documentation is automatically checked for completeness. Connected to PAS-X are two subordinate SCADA systems by ProLeit and ABB. With the roll-out of PAS-X paper-based documentation had to yield to electronic documentation. The regular production briefings are now taking place at the EBR system.
At its production site in Wuppertal-Elberfeld Bayer produces more than 20
different active ingredients. Among them are active ingredients for drugs to
treat coronary heart diseases like the well-known Adalat®, for the
antibiotics Ciprobay® and Ayalox® as well as for the biotechnologically
produced Glucobay®. Substances employed in veterinary medicine
complete the range of products.
