Industry case studies – SoftTrace in action

A modular, customisable solution

The individual SoftTrace modules add up to a plant-wide data collection and management system. The suite can be implemented on a modular basis to create a system with the required degree of flexibility to meet the specific needs and budget of individual customers in the Pharmaceutical industry. SoftTrace Pharmaceutical can be deployed as a single quality solution set or as part of an integrated system. Using application program interface (API) technology, all of the SoftTrace modules integrate easily with existing ERP, plant automation systems and laboratory instruments to provide full forwards and backwards traceability and an effective risk and crisis management tool.

  • SoftTrace Raw Materials – capture data at the good inwards point and monitor and control raw material movements. Quality control the release of bulk raw materials to production. Segregate raw materials by type or source. Integrate raw material quality data with all other operational areas.
  • SoftTrace LIMS – real-time access to analysis from all key areas such as dryers, in-process silos, production lines, finished goods, effluent and environmental analysis. Temperature, container wash, media control, calibration and concession records. CIP, acid and dipping tank analysis. Environmental records and graphing. Waste and effluent monitoring. Integrate easily with laboratory instruments, plant automation, MES, bar-coding and ERP systems.
  • SoftTrace In-Process – track, integrate and control all manufacturing data to product tank / dryer / silo level for instant data access. Configure process control records to reflect existing manufacturing make sheets. Automatically import in-process quality analysis results from SoftTrace LIMS. Integrate with process automation systems to track all equipment used, key performance events and provide a trend analysis for continuous monitoring of plant performance. Ensure traceability from the raw materials and ingredients through production, dryers, silos and filling lines to the finished product.
  • SoftTrace Inventory Management – effectively manage inventory, optimise product values and increase profits. A full profile of the quality of all product inventory to individual pack level. Integrate with all other modules to complete the production traceability chain by providing an electronic link between the process control sheets, packing, quality and inventory records.
