Identifying Benefits for S-88 and S-95 Based SystemsDownload Now
System Architectures using S-88 and S-95 standards are being used in system implementations across the plant floor. These systems include batch management, MES, process control and ERP integration. For regulated industries, electronic record keeping and system validation must be addressed in these new initiatives. When implemented as applications, these architectural components are designed to provide benefits that support the companys business drivers. These benefits often overlap as the interfaces between applications become blurred as application vendors are changing functionality. Using S-88 and S-95 standards and an architectural approach, system requirements can be related directly to benefits. This paper presents system life cycle architecture for implementing pharmaceutical automation projects. Primary, secondary and strategic benefit sources for measurable economic benefits in each functional area of regulated and non-regulated operations. Realized benefits are presented for actual implementations across the plant floor.
