Karlsruhe, Germany – Integrated life sciences solutions provider Körber has outlined its vision for reduced complexity and more integrated pharma ‘factories of excellence’ that can revolutionize process efficiencies.

In a blog published on its website (see Resources), Körber says its ecosystem of products, services and solutions can help pharma companies transform their production by embracing a completely holistic approach empowering people, processes, and innovative technology.

Holistic approach

“Companies in all industries are experiencing profound changes throughout their entire production. They must become faster, more efficient, and more cost-effective — from the initial idea to the finished solution. In order to be successful in the long term, a strategic partner is needed who recognizes new trends and solves future challenges flexibly and competitively,” Körber Pharma declares.

Over recent years, the Körber Ecosystem has evolved from an array of single products and capabilities to offering holistic solutions that consider the wider strategic needs and goals of the client business to ensure sustained success.

Körber’s current focus on enabling each pharma client to create its own Factory of Excellence (FoE) by seamlessly integrating skill sets and technologies from different suppliers as well as expanding its offers to include upstream and downstream machines and software solutions, combined with a wide array of complimentary consulting services. This has involved bringing together key experts from all relevant pharma areas of its internal network to create synergies between competencies like digital, inspection, packaging materials, packaging machines, handling, software, and pharma consulting.

Enabling the pharmaceutical factory of excellence

The whole Körber ecosystem is anchored on the customer’s production facility, starting with a holistic analysis of all needs to identify complexities and efficiency losses involved in processes and production stages. To reduce them to implement a digital Factory of Excellence demands combined pharma expertise. This will involve designing a personalized approach for the complete production system that aligns with set business goals to implement measures that will contribute to the future of your Factory of excellence.

“We use this as a basis to develop a plan that links long-term goals with quickly measurable improvements, thus reducing complexity within the entire production chain,” says Körber.

Single source advantages

“We pool all our expertise for the best possible result. We identify the experts working in various areas and individually bring them together in a team. In the next step, we use the interplay of your experience, Körber’s specialist expertise, and the input of independent experts to ensure optimal solutions, individual approaches, and results for you,” the blog tells clients.

“By linking interdisciplinary skill sets and technologies within our ecosystem, we can always respond holistically to your individual needs. Together, we can increase your overall equipment effectiveness, reduce fixed costs, and support you as a strategic partner when handling digitization issues,” says Körber.

The blog concludes that a holistic consulting approach frees clients to focus on their essential core business needs. Consequently, optimized processes can be supported not only with machinery and software, but also with CQV services, MES consulting, OEE support, and many more, while significantly reducing your time-to-market and starting your production sooner and more efficiently than ever.

“That’s because we take care of the seamless integration of all solutions, which makes you less dependent on third-party suppliers. This, in turn, provides your production system with maximum flexibility.”
