First Indian Pharma Company Successfully Goes Live with Electronic MES Using Werum's PAS-X


Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd. completes first implementation phase of Werum's standard Manufacturing Execution System at Hyderabad site

Lueneburg/Germany, 11 January 2012 - The pharmaceutical major Dr. Reddy's is the first Indian company to improve its manufacturing processes by installing an electronic PAS-X Manufacturing Execution System (MES). Dr. Reddy's opted for Werum's MES PAS-X to help enhance the quality and compliance and to optimize the efficiency and productivity of its pharmaceutical shop floor processes.

Implementing PAS-X forms part of Dr. Reddy's expansion strategy. The first step, now successfully completed, involved installing PAS-X at one of the company's FDA and MHRA approved production facilities at Bachupally in Hyderabad.

In its first step, the PAS-X handles and controls the Warehouse Management System, such as receiving, sampling and storing of materials. It also carries out Weighing & Dispensing and Equipment Management operations.

Using mobile terminals, PAS-X coordinates the barcode-controlled process for material tracking and tracing of containers as they travel from the warehouse to the dispensing area. An automated interface allows PAS-X to communicate directly with Dr. Reddy's ERP (SAP).

The project is being carried out by a team of experienced experts at Werum's Asia Support Centre with Dr. Reddy's Internal Core Team.
