Written by Brandon Johnson on 10/6/2017

About the Customer

The customer is a leading American healthcare company that manufactures products to treat hemophilia, kidney disease, immune disorders, and other chronic and acute medical conditions. With an annual revenue that exceeds $15 billion, the company is a leader in both the bioscience and medical product industries.

The Customer's Need

Hyla Soft started working with the U.S. branch of the customer during the company’s initiative to implement an enterprise-level Electronic Batch Records (EBR) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) solution across their entire production division. The customer’s new EBR/MES system was based on SIMATIC IT XFP, a Siemens MES platform designed specifically for Life Science Manufacturing in order to improve efficiency, quality, and visibility within the challenging industry’s production processes.

After a successful MES implementation in Europe, the customer decided to extend the new system to cover multiple product lines at several new greenfield and existing facilities in the United States. The scope of the system covered the customer’s entire manufacturing process, providing full EBR, weighing and dispensing management, materials management, equipment management, sample management, and full integration with several external systems such as ERP, LIMS, DMS, etc.

As Siemens’ preferred integration partner and thanks to our leading MES practice with the top functional experts on SIMATIC IT XFP, not to mention our capability to provide the best resources and local support on a global scale, Hyla Soft was chosen as the official system integrator for the customer's North American initiative.

Per the commitment we make to all of our customers, the Hyla Soft consulting and management teams built a strong and open relationship with the customer in order to ensure that our work and solution fulfilled all of the company’s needs and expectations from day 1 until the completion of the project. Hyla Soft provided a combination of on-site technical experts, remote development teams, and just-in-time technical and functional support to partner with and augment the client’s existing staff and to help ensure the success of the EBR/MES rollout.

By leveraging our diverse pool of talented consultants, Hyla Soft was able to provide both the technical resources and leadership required to successfully implement and deploy the customer's new MES solution.
