Machine and operating data acquisition with PM-SCADA MDE/BDE has increased productivity and Serrig achieves rapid ROI, July 28, 2008 – the Software House FELTEN GmbH has his machine and operating data acquisition system PM at the pharmaceutical companies Boehringer Ingelheim of microParts GmbH-SCADA introduced MDE/BDE. \”It provides for the production of innovative inhalation system Respimat soft inhaler\” for lower machine errors, downtime and fewer rejects. With the use of the FELTEN solution the previous handwritten logging was replaced by data and essential conditions could be created for mass production of the was. Sources of loss from the outset Boehringer Ingelheim eliminates microParts is a global technology leader in Microsystems technology. findings. The company is a leading supplier of components and systems with microstructures for biomedicine.
It produced since 2004 the medication nebulizer Respimat soft inhaler\”for the German market. The patented Microtechnology of the inhalation system allows an improvement of lung function and thus enhances the quality of life patients with chronic respiratory disease. The pharmaceutical product produced on an assembly line consisting of eight modules with up to three manufacturing facilities. The use of a modern solution for the machine and operating data acquisition was necessary, because the processes in the original small production area not on the intended mass production could transferred. In particular the manual collection practised hitherto, analysis and archiving of the production data was not the requirements changed.
The solution for us was the PM-SCADA system. \”It helps in making loss sources within the production chain by LR to eliminate and to increase production throughput efficient\”, says Dr. Thomas Gruterich, project manager production engineering at Boehringer Ingelheim microParts. After a short time the software could prove a quick return on investment.
