Electronic work instructions pharma: ensure your operators are following clear and repeatable instructions

Shopfloor-OnlineLifescience Edition allows you to configure a workflow recipe that will prompt operators on the next step or action in a pre-configured sequence of steps. You will eliminate paper copies or laminated posters and eliminate all worries of incorrect versions being retained after engineering change orders (ECOs). Changes can be pushed to the shop floor at the press of a button – even on a global scale.

Our electronic Work Instructions (eWIs) will improve the way supervisors and operators build products, and the way they communicate with engineers and maintenance personnel. Shopfloor-OnlineLifescience Edition enables a centralised, standardised, and automated workflow management system that can be used right there on your life science and pharmaceutical manufacturing shop floor.

In addition, Shopfloor-OnlineLifescience Edition electronic Work Instructions Software can contain images, diagrams, links to full SOPs and even videos. With this technology, the operator can watch each step of a complex process or step before completing it.

eWI functionality can be used by all batch and discrete processes, from line clearance to manufacturing to packaging.  eWIs are also very useful for multi-product plants requiring various setup activities and checks that need to be carried out by operators at a campaign level rather than for specific batches.

Electronic work instructions manufacturing: the benefits

  • Reduced downtime – engineering change orders are implemented faster due to real-time deployment of new instructions
  • Improved communication – easier sharing of information to the manufacturing environment, and better visualisation of steps
  • Reduced waste / scrap – improved right-first-time quality
  • Improved regulatory compliance – changes are communicated quickly to the shop floor. Operator login and recording of steps ensures that personnel are aware of and following regulatory changes
  • Faster NPI processes – better communication and collaboration between engineering and manufacturing reduces the time to introduce, train and produce new products
