Dr Reddy's deployed PAS-X for the first time as full-blown MES, covering all operations from material receipt to production.
"Based on the good experiences with PAS-X V3 at our Hyderabad plant, we took this system as a template and rolled it out at our site in Visakhapatnam", said Mr Sanjay Mantri, director, Dr Reddy's Laboratories.
He also added, "This way, the PAS-X MES was set up only within five months and we were able to quickly start producing the first trial batches. PAS-X helps us to ensure full compliance and highest quality right from the beginning."
The pharmaceutical company aimed at implementing a fully tried and tested MES to ensure approval of the greenfield plant by all regulators, especially the US health authority FDA, said the press statement.
The MES project was implemented by Werum's Asia Support Center in cooperation with Dr Reddy's Centre of Excellence.
