Going paperless

Siemens is launching Version 6.1 of its Simatic IT eBR software, which is at the heart of its Manufacturing Operation Management for the life science industries. The new version of the software enables users to easily implement paperless manufacturing solutions by offering two main features: A new web-based MBR (Master Batch Record) module which facilitates the management of key process parameters, and native integration with the Siemens automation layer (Simatic PCS 7 process control system and HMI systems).

With its new Master Batch Record module and a ‘Project Startup’ package, Simatic IT eBR 6.1 provides a list of out-of-the-box deliverables to speed up project execution time. In addition, it offers native integration with Siemens PCS 7 Batch and new access to electronic work instruction lists embedded in SCADA/HMI clients. By accelerating the design, execution, review and release of regulated production processes and electronic batch records (EBRs), Simatic IT eBR helps both enhance product quality and lower production costs.
