Shop Floor Integration for Life Sciences

An ABB Ability™ Manufacturing Operations Management Application

Validated, integrated and seamless solution from shop floor to ERP. It helps our customers in the manufacturing industries such as life science and food & beverage meet their regulatory requirements, produce high product quality, achieve fast time to market and benefit from significant cost savings.

Today, many solutions for the life science industry are still not or less integrated, requiring high efforts in engineering and synchronization of data between MES (Manufacturing Execution System) and DCS (Distributed Control System). Especially in GMP productions (GMP = Good Manufacturing Practices) this has as a crucial influence on time to market, quality and profitability.

The challenge for Automation suppliers is to create an efficient workflow, fulfilling FDA regulations following GAMP5 guideline (ISPE) for engineering and validation to ensure data integrity.
