Ensure End-to-End Compliance in the Process Industry

How integrated IT solutions for chemical companies improve productivity and security.

From Customer Specifications to Compliant Products

Chemical companies have a lot to take care of. Production control, formula management, warehousing, and logistics have to be coordinated throughout the enterprise. At the same time, these companies need to adhere to increasingly strict compliance regulations. Growing competition and rising customer expectations are compelling SMEs in particular to reduce inventory management costs and optimize lead times.

itelligence helps your organization prepare for the challenges of the digital future – regardless of which area of the process industry you operate in. Our industry-specific, integrated IT solutions for chemical companies support each and every step in your value chain. In this way, you can ensure that your processes are transparent, compliant, and cost effective.

In Focus: Compliance - from REACH to FDA to GMP

Chemical industry has some of the most stringent, yet least transparent, rules and regulations of any sector. Guidelines include those set out by REACH, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Companies must pay as much attention to environmental and safety regulations as to documentation requirements.

This calls for integrated quality management, transparent formula management, and complete traceability of all goods and materials throughout their lifecycle. Achieving all this without costs skyrocketing is only possible with the right knowledge and integrated IT infrastructure.

The Internet of Things – New Opportunities for the Process Industry

For continuing success in the future, chemical and pharmaceutical companies need to make product development and production more efficient. Machine-to-machine communication and the digitization of processes allow businesses to better compete in the market. We help you to define your digital strategy and implement practical IoT scenarios.

Is Your Chemical Company Facing the Following Challenges?

  • Are unconnected, time-consuming production control processes holding you back??
  • Do you lack the transparency necessary to ensure comprehensive quality management and assess it in detail?

If so, you may need to rethink your processes. And that’s where we can help you.

Benefit from an Integrated Value Chain

Production Control

Many chemical companies began automating their production processes long before “smart factory” was an established term. However, end-to-end integration into the SAP system in particular provides considerable potential for further optimization – especially from a financial perspective. Integrated batch management and quality checks are central to this.

In addition, many production steps require a digital signature. In some instances this is obligatory, while in others the guidelines give some leeway – and capitalizing on this can lead to financial savings. This calls for expertise that itelligence specialists have gained through their involvement in countless projects over many years and that they always keep up to date.

Research and Development

For future-oriented companies, developing new products with the right properties and best possible cost structure has always been a key focus. Thanks to digitization in the form of collaboration between business partners during the development process, enterprises can achieve this with less risk and greater cost efficiency than ever before.

The prerequisite for this, however, is that research and development are closely integrated into the existing IT landscape and that processes run smoothly.

Production Safety

Minimizing risk to humans, products, and the environment is an every-day duty for chemical companies. In supporting this task, the processes and technologies enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT) can play a decisive role – by simplifying hazardous materials management, for example.

Furthermore, pressure sensors incorporated into chemical pipelines can detect when even minute quantities of hazardous substances are leaking. In this event, they turn off the devices and report the incident to the integrated IT system.

IT Validation

Companies in the pharmaceutical industry have to validate their IT systems in accordance with guidelines set out by the EU and the FDA. However, the majority of decision makers are unsure exactly which systems this applies to – and to what extent. This uncertainty results in unnecessary costs.

itelligence has used its considerable knowledge of the industry to develop a cost- and risk-optimized project approach that can lead to financial savings of up to 40 percent.

From Risk Analysis to Training

Companies have to balance adhering to external regulations with the success of internal processes. They need to abide by the principle of “as much compliance as necessary; as little effort as possible.” For this, you need an IT partner who understands the industry and thinks consistently as well as economically: just like itelligence.

30–40% of the Costs Associated with IT Validation Are Avoidable

Implementing industry-specific regulations, laws, and guidelines on an IT level can quickly become expensive, as doing so means adapting standard processes.

With solutions specialized for the industry and a tried-and-tested project approach, we can help you reduce this expenditure. This allows you to support logistical processes, including serialization of packaging, without the need for further customization. It also enables you to integrate legally relevant processes such as those from REACH.
