The SmartFactory provides an operations management solution for single-use facilities that optimizes plant-wide resource utilization, integrates manufacturing (batch) information, and facilitates training and validation record management. SmartFactory is a COTS operation management solution based on industry standard MES (manufacturing execution system) platforms.
As the challenges in biologics and vaccine manufacturing increase with fewer blockbuster drugs, emerging markets, patent expiration, shorter time-to-market, price pressures, and increased regulatory complexity, companies are turning to multi-product single-use facilities. These facilities can provide higher yield production with fewer employees and a greatly reduced capital cost. However, they also require far greater operations management system flexibility.
The Finesse SmartFactory has been optimized to increase productivity and maximize asset utilization, while retaining an open architecture. Bio-production process flows can be designed in a modular and scalable manner, using best-of-breed equipment (including Finesse SmartSystems), without compromising quality or compliance.
Presentations on the SmartFactory and the implementation
of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) by Finesse and
our partners are available via the SmartFactory downloads tab.
The implementation of manufacturing execution systems and the SmartFactory is rapidly evolving. This topic was explored in depth at CellWorld 2015 with presentations by Finesse as well as our partners with MES expertise. The following presentations provide an overview and include case studies.
