The Power of Integrating Process Design & Manufacturing

Enabling Unprecedented Planning, Analysis & Optimization

The Neo PLM solution represents a technological breakthrough for pharmaceutical companies and other process manufacturers. For the first time, process design technology integrates seamlessly with manufacturing execution systems. The result: a unique and powerful digital-design-based approach to managing information, productivity and quality throughout the product lifecycle.

Implement Quality by Design (QbD) and Process Validation

Neo ensures all quality attributes are captured and tracked throughout the product lifecycle, enabling faster technology transfer and process validation. Analysis tools provide instant access to process deviations, allowing quality issues to be resolved more quickly.

Anticipate the impact of process changes

Neo created the only PLM solution that allows you to model the full impact of process changes across the lifecycle before manufacturing begins.

Facilitate scale-up and production planning

In late-stage research, Neo PLM allows you to create a full engineering design of the process using a powerful and intuitive user interface. Comprehensive simulation performs detailed calculations, providing engineers with rich decision information including:

  • Manufacturing time-cycle
  • Critical path analysis
  • Material and energy balances
  • Compliance verification

Optimize processes and product quality

After a batch is produced, execution data automatically maps back to the process design—enabling easy point-and-click data analysis.

  • Continuously improve quality assurance and cost optimization
  • Easily detect discrepancies
  • Move toward true exception-based quality management

Streamline and automate manufacturing processes

Neo integrates with and complements your existing systems. It is the only PLM software in the marketplace that enables process design to automatically create shop-floor manufacturing documents, as well as configure and integrate recipes directly into execution systems.

  • Synchronize processes and data across systems
  • Improve technology transfer between facilities
  • Reduce costs and eliminate errors

Capture and reuse formulations and recipes

This includes flexible and dynamic change control to manage revisions and the ability to configure and track formulation and recipe variants. Process designs created in one plant can be easily transferred to other plants.
