Digital Engineered Solutions for Life Science applications

Improve efficiency and sustainability of manufacturing processes and help meet product safety by leveraging the digital transformation described by the Pharma 4.0 Plug and Produce initiative.

Starting from GMP process compliance

Life science production processes need to respect several Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Meeting GMP requirements relies upon the Quality by Design (QbD) approach. Identifying the Critical Material Attributes and the Critical Process Parameters (CPP) to define the Critical Quality Attributes is pivotal to applying the QbD principles.

What is a Digital Engineered Solution?

A Eurotherm Digital Engineered Solution (DES) leverages the available technology to harness a digital manufacturing approach. The DES conceives and documents a path to analyze the CPPs’ attributes, helping to optimize operation equipment and processes and meet the Pharma 4.0 expectations.

A DES supports the digital transformation of pharmaceutical laboratories, R&D and manufacturing plants with the potential to improve efficiency, safety, and sustainability.

Designed to meet Pharma 4.0 ambitions:

  • Informed decisions
  • Interoperability
  • Aggregated data
  • Decentralization
  • Plug and produce

Leveraging Eurotherm technology:

  • Different scalable architecture options
  • Modular configurations distributed on multiple cooperating edge controllers
  • Range of function blocks to simplify the ISPE GAMP 5 Category 3 part of the configuration

Bundled documentation:

  • ISPE GAMP 5, installation qualification (IQ), and operational qualification (OQ) templates
  • QbD risk assessment forms and identified CPPs

Digital Engineered Solutions – areas of interest

Eurotherm DES’s are focused on key applications with embedded QbD, to help reduce project execution costs, risks and time to market while complying with regulations.
