Manufacturing IT solutions for the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical industries[edit]

Manufacturing IT is the term for IT solutions that ensure efficient production control. A manufacturing execution system (MES) is the central system of a manufacturing IT solution. The MES provides the link between the equipment/automation level and the enterprise management (ERP system). Werum is the internationally leading MES provider for the niche market of the pharma and biotech industries. More than 50 percent of the largest pharma and biotech companies run Werum's PAS-X standard software product.[5][6] Werum's competitors in this market segment include Rockwell Automation, Honeywell POMS, Emerson Electric and Siemens.[7] For their PAS-X MES, Werum received the "2007 Company of the Year" award by the U.S.-based global growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan in the category "Manufacturing Execution Systems for Pharma and Biotech Industries".[8]
