April 11, 2014

ERP/MES solution to cover 18 production lines in five process areas

Novo Nordisk has implemented Werum IT Solutions PAS-X V3.1.5 at its site in Montes Claros, Brazil. The Montes Claros site has 18 production lines in five process areas, including formulation, filling, inspection, assembling and packaging insulin pens, and two lines for tablet packaging.
 
PAS-X was implemented with SAP in the global PS@SAP program, Novo Nordisk’s largest IT initiative to install a globally standardized ERP/MES solution across all production sites. Montes Claros is the company’s fifth, and largest site on the PAS-X plan. The next PAS-X installation is underway at Novo Nordisk's site in Tianjin, China.
 
"Werum's support as we went live was excellent, for example putting people on site short-term and providing support whenever needed," said Roberto Soares Toledo, Novo Nordisk's project manager in Brazil. "Since PAS-X is so flexible, user-friendly, and intuitive, it's possible to begin with the basics and then build on these, learning to use PAS-X step by step."
