POMSnet Aquila MES Comprehensive Modules & Functionality
- Order Management
Create Work Orders. ERP integration or stand-alone POMSnet Aquila functionality that manages work orders for production. Built-in flexibility with life sciences best practices design.
POMSnet Aquila MES Order Management manages the creation and execution of production orders and batches. Through the Order Management page, you can create, release, hold, resume, close, and delete orders and batches and view the Electronic Batch Record (EBR) report. POMSnet manages the execution of production orders through a hierarchy of orders, batches, and splits.
- Equipment Management
Know the status of all equipment in one system. Equipment Management allows complete oversight of equipment and rooms in a production facility.
POMSnet Aquila MES Equipment Management and Equipment Wizard allows users to create classes, types, and specifications for all of your equipment. Equipment Management can be an independent application or used in conjunction with the other POMSnet Aquila applications, such as Materials Management, Recipe Execution, and Weigh & Dispense. Use Equipment Management for Barcoding equipment, tracking equipment location, status checks, and equipment allocation throughout your entire GMP facility production process.
- Material Management
Material Management functionality specifies raw materials, intermediates, components, and finished goods during production and warehousing. Flexible adding materials or reconciliation functions control the integrity of raw materials and finished goods in real-time.
Material Management provides functions to control the movement of materials through your plant, report waste material, and adjust material inventory. The system tracks material movement in two modes: Lot-level material movement or Container-level.
Lot-Level tracking controls and tracks a given quantity of materials at a location by its associated internal lot identifier.
Container-level material movement. Controls and tracks individual material containers.
- Specification Management
Recipe authoring in an easy to use graphical user interface which includes over 100+ S88 phases library ready to use out-of-the-box.
POMSnet Aquila’s Specification Management module managers ALL specifications required to implement a proposed solution. Specification management includes version control and effectivity dating for all objects and is the heart of the recipe authoring process.
- Weigh and Dispense
Weigh and Dispense is pre-built for you with industry-leading best practices for a variety of material weighing. Efficiently provide agility to workforce operations, all while meeting GMP standards.
POMSnet Aquila provides very comprehensive functions for managing central and line dispensing areas, including support for weighing by batch, campaigning weight, and multiple other optimized weigh methods. POMSnet Aquila supports more than 15 unique weigh methods with standard out-of-the-box functionality.
- Quality Management
From 21 CFR Part 11 Electronic signatures and records to FIFO or FEFO inventory management, Aquila simplifies and automates the task of effectively meeting regulatory compliance.
Quality is in our DNA. Gain better insight by enforcing GMP practices locally or globally. Quality control manages expiry dating, retesting, horizon policies, lot disposition, and many other functions you would naturally expect to meet quality goals.
- Personnel Management
Stay in compliance automatically with Personnel Management. Integrate with corporate Active Directory, training management systems, and secure biometric sign-on ensures a ready workforce before production starts.
Save countless hours with POMSnet Aquila. Control what tasks operators can perform according to your training and SOP group policies. POMSnet Aquila can integrate into your training management systems to share role status and role permissions in real-time.
- Electronic Batch Records
Go paperless with POMSnet Aquila Electronic Batch Records. Capture all the process information, data, and events during the manufacturing process and quality review in a single source.
POMSnet Aquila provides over 50+ cGMP reports required for cGMP system management, auditing, and reporting. The POMSnet Aquila database is open and defined for customers to reference all the MES data in custom reports or data analytics applications. Query builder tools make it easy to access your data fast.
- Review-by-exception & Release-by-exception
Does your quality review take hours? Now it takes minutes with POMSnet Aquila. Quality Release with POMSnet Aquila can enable release in near real-time. By leveraging automation, the quality teams only need to review the color-coded exception report.
By far, the most competitive advantage to leveraging automation and software that a company can harness is RBE. Release-by-exception goes one step further by allowing the system, under the right validated acceptance, to release the product automatically when zero exception occurred during the execution of the batch.
- Worksheets and Log Books
Achieve truly paperless manufacturing with the POMSnet Aquila worksheet module.
A go-to tool for operations. Worksheets are recipe structures that do not create a final product but instead perform an operation. They can be scheduled (as part of a batch), called on an Ad hoc basis, triggered from a planned deviation or event initiated from either another recipe phase or operation outside of the recipe executions environment (as in warehouse receiving).
MES Business and Process Integration & Standards Across the Enterprise
Standard tools provide integration between POMSnet and other systems such as ERP, LIMS, CAPA, training, document management, and asset management. Templates for most common systems provide rapid implementation based on industry-standard technology. POMSnet provides direct device and process control system connectors for equipment integration. Local workstations access scales, bar-code readers, and other devices. Industry-standard OPC clients provide connectivity to process control systems. Functional interfaces based on the S88 batch standard allow POMSnet recipes to launch and supervise control system-based batch logic while capturing control system events for inclusion in the electronic batch record.
Over 50+ standard out-of-the-box GMP Reports examples and templates to choose from.
