Redefining MES Usability: New Version of Werum’s PAS-X available
Lüneburg, Germany, January 30, 2015 – Werum IT Solutions has released the latest version of its worldwide market-leading Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries. The new PAS-X V3.1.7 software offers new levels of usability, and serves to further improve overall operational efficiencies.
Easy-to-use MES for pharma companies
“Pharmaceutical companies are pressed to make production lines increasingly efficient and agile,” says Robert Welter, Head of PAS-X Product Management, Werum IT Solutions GmbH. “To meet these requirements, an MES is needed that is ideally suited, not only in terms of functionality but also in terms of usability in order to allow easy system operation. In addition to designing new and innovative functions, it is essential to ensure an unsurpassed level of usability.”
New user guidance concept
With PAS-X V3.1.7, the dialog for electronic batch recording was given a new design to optimally support production plant personnel in performing their tasks. Despite the complete functional scope of PAS-X, the information is displayed in a way that allows operators to work intuitively and efficiently, allowing them to focus on the most demanding aspects of their work while still being able to find additional information at any time. Based on feedback culled directly from shop floor end users, Werum also optimized certain automatic processes to further improve the overall user experience.
Device-optimized and improved design
PAS-X comes with device-specific dialogs. Depending on the device, users are displayed a dialog that has the optimal size and can be operated easily. For instance, the KPI dialogs are optimized for large screens – frequently used, for example, on packaging lines – as well as for tablet screens often used by supervisors. All operating elements are placed in optimal on-screen positions and font sizes can be changed. This is particularly relevant for mobile devices and Asian languages, such as Chinese and Japanese.
