Dr. Reddys completes first implementation phase of Werum PAS-X


To improve efficiency and productivity of shopfloor processes at Hyderabad plant

Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories is the first Indian company to install an electronic PAS-X Manufacturing Execution System (MES) from Werum of Lueneburg, Germany.

The firm has selected Werum’s system to help enhance quality and compliance and to optimise the efficiency and productivity of its pharmaceutical shopfloor processes.

Implementing PAS-X forms part of Dr. Reddy’s expansion strategy. The first step, now successfully completed, involved installing PAS-X at its FDA and MHRA approved production facility at Bachupally in Hyderabad.

In its first step, the PAS-X handles and controls the warehouse management system, such as receiving, sampling and storing of materials. It also carries out weighing and dispensing and equipment management operations.

Using mobile terminals, PAS-X coordinates the barcode-controlled process for material tracking and tracing of containers as they travel from the warehouse to the dispensing area. An automated interface allows PAS-X to communicate directly with Dr. Reddy’s ERP (SAP).

A team of experienced experts at Werum’s Asia Support Centre is working on the project with Dr. Reddy’s internal core team.
