Siemens is launching Version 6.1 of its Simatic IT eBR software, which is at the heart of its Manufacturing Operation Management for the life science industries. The new version of the software enables users to easily implement paperless manufacturing solutions by offering two main features: A new web-based MBR (Master Batch Record) module which facilitates the management of key process parameters, and native integration with the Siemens automation layer (Simatic PCS 7 process control system and HMI systems). The new version reduces the work involved in engineering and operation, helps users to enforce standardization and makes for a more transparent production process, so shortening the time-to-market.

Product quality and safety are the top priorities for the life science industries, especially in the pharmaceutical industry. At the same time, many companies need to cut costs and increase innovation. Siemens offers a paperless manufacturing solution for enhancing both efficiency and product quality, while at the same time bringing down risk and costs. Fully integrated communication is established between the automation level and manufacturing IT. This enables complete electronic recording and documentation of quality-related production data, while eliminating time-consuming manual procedures and paper-based batch reports. Simatic IT eBR 6.1 facilitates the implementation of the paperless manufacturing. With a new Master Batch Record module and a “Project Startup” package, it provides a list of out-of-the-box deliverables to speed up project execution time. In addition, it offers native integration with Siemens PCS 7 Batch and new access to electronic work instruction lists embedded in SCADA/HMI clients. By accelerating the design, execution, review and release of regulated production processes and electronic batch records (EBRs), Simatic IT eBR helps both enhance product quality and lower production costs.

Simatic IT eBR 6.1 is based on the engine of the former XFP product developed by Elan Software Systems and acquired by Siemens in 2009. It combines 30 years of proven experience in the pharmaceutical industry and native integration with the rest of the Siemens portfolio for regulated and non-regulated industries.
