INFOR ERP BLENDING
The functional flexibility
The process industry production is based on formulas and recipes, unlike the manufacturing industry, which uses bills of materials and the assembly of components. Thus, in process production, the most significant factors are the ingredients, rather than the parts; the formulas, rather than bills of materials; bulk products rather than single units.
Only a vertical software specifically developed for the requirements of formula-based production can optimally support the daily operations.
Giving particular attention and care to the pharmaceutical, chemical, cosmetic, paintings, and food sectors, Infor ERP Blending was designed exclusively for the process industry, focusing therefore on the recipe (Master Batch Record).
The solution has a complete functional coverage at service of all departments, and it can be configured according to the company specific requirements
Infor ERP Blending includes the materials management with purchases, sales, and inventory, as well as the production planning and control with fully integrated development and management of the recipes.
The weighing dialogue modules (Dispensing), LIMS (Laboratory Information Management System) and Formula Development, specifically designed for the process industry, guarantee high-quality production, and they simplify the consistent monitoring of the batch inventory.
The digital management of warehouse and production through mobile terminals and barcodes allows optimizing the resources, while keeping production yield and manpower under control.
Infor ERP Blending has an open structure that facilitates integration with external factory systems: weighing, process control, robotic warehouse management, and automation.
The detection and analysis of all production data allow an accurate cost control that can extended to industrial accounting.
Modular and scalable, the solution supports the activation of sector-specific functions ensuring compliance with the regulations.
For pharmaceutical industries, it manages Audit Trail, Serialization, and the implementation of the Electronic Batch Record (EBR), providing reliable support in Quality Assurance. The solution complies with the 21 CFR Part 11 requirements of FDA and EU-GMP – Annex 11. The functional coverage is completed with the management of Product and Process IPC’s, PQR and Cleanings (Rooms/Equipments).
For chemical and painting industries, it manages hazardous materials (Infor Blending Envicon) and R&D, carrying out an accurate costing analysis of formulas and comparisons between different versions.
For cosmetic industries, it manages the Research & Development projects and the PIFs (Product Information File) automatic generation
