Lüneburg, Germany, November 7, 2017 – In the context of a tendering process, the Spanish pharmaceutical company Almirall opted for Werum’s PAS-X Manufacturing Execution System to be installed in the German plant in Reinbek near Hamburg. Almirall is the market leader for skin medicine in Germany and e.g. produces the Balneum® skin care products.

PAS-X will be rolled out as a full-scope MES for the entire manufacturing process – including weighing, mass production and packaging. It will replace the legacy production management system. The new review and release workflows will lead to more effective processes as well as compliance with regulatory requirements.

PAS-X will be implemented out of the box and according to Werum’s unique implementation method “Ready”, “Fit”, “Build” and “Run”. The benefit for Almirall: short project term and significant cost efficiency.

“We are already thrilled about the Fit Phase,” says Maik Weber, Head of Production at Almirall. “Together with the Werum consultants we matched our business processes in the Reinbek production site with the best-practice-based PAS-X workflows. Both the approach and the expertise of the consultants and the results of this phase were really convincing!”
