Planning software to optimize complex production and quality control processes

The pharmaceutical industry continues to post substantial growth worldwide. This trend is driven by the development of generics and biotechnology in developed countries, and by general development in emerging countries. However, the lack of economic visibility and governments’ pressure on the reimbursement of medications impose major changes in the industry. Consequently, it is critical to optimize production facilities in order to adapt to declining profitability and globalized competition.

DELMIA Ortems planning and scheduling software solutions adapt easily to the constraints of the pharmaceutical industry’s different production processes (active principles; dry, liquid and paste forms; etc.) and the quality control activity.

They help make better use of production capacity so as to manage growth, run investment simulations in the medium-term plans, optimize production runs and improve production / packaging synchronization. Equipment, labor, and raw materials can be optimized based on finite capacity. Short-term scheduling lets all plant personnel collaborate on the same detailed schedule in order to achieve productivity, responsiveness, and quality objectives.

Planning software to synchronize production with demand.

Faced with sharp demand variability and rising raw material costs, the specialty chemicals industry has to cut back its inventories while producing and procuring with a demand pull system based on orders and forecasts. The globalization of markets and competition increases the economic pressure and imposes a reduction in production costs, which in turn requires optimizing the use of production capacity.

DELMIA Ortems’ planning and scheduling solutions help synchronize production plans so inventory coverage can be aligned with orders and forecasts. Equipment, labor and raw materials can be optimized based on finite capacity. Our APS software takes into account the complex constraints of vats and reactors. It synchronizes all shops across all formulation levels and optimize production runs to minimize changeover times and losses. Short-term scheduling makes plants more responsive to production contingencies and changes in demand.

Discover our unique line of collaborative planning solutions for the specialty chemicals industry.

Whether you are a synthetic or combinatorial chemicals manufacturer or whether your primary constraints involve manufacturing or packaging across multiple facilities, with DELMIA Ortems you will find the solution suited to your needs.

Planning software to optimize complex production and adapt to demand

The beauty and cosmetics market has reached maturity and the current growth is primarily driven by exports to emerging countries. This limited growth and the lack of forward economic certainty impose a new step in your industry: henceforth it is critical to optimize your production facilities to take into account the decreased profitability and fiercer global competition.

It is also essential to integrate a flexible planning tool so your production can adapt quickly to changes in demand and to the increased number of products tied to creativity and innovation in your businesses.
