Following a global bidding process, Sharp Packaging selected Werum IT Solutions as its strategic MES partner to implement an Electronic Batch Record (EBR) infrastructure at its Netherlands facility.
“We see MES as a strategic system that gives us competitive advantages,” says John Hoey, Sharp IT Business Partner. “Investment in EBR will serve to improve our business opportunity pipeline and digitally transform the way in which the batch record process is executed. We have chosen Werum’s PAS-X MES because of its proven ability to handle the most complex batch records without significant configuration as well as it’s track record with a number of Sharp’s existing customers.”
By using Werum’s PAS-X MES, Sharp Packaging will benefit from greater compliance adherence, improved right first time and process standardization. The company starts its MES journey with the rollout of PAS-X at its production site in Heerenveen, the Netherlands. PAS-X fully integrates the existing Navision ERP system.
