versiondog - Data management for the pharmaceutical industry

The national and international GxP regulations are there to ensure that medications and their active constituents are safe and meet their intended use. They impose a number of exacting demands on the production facilities of the pharmaceutical industry. versiondog helps pharmaceutical manufacturers adhere to the GxP rules of the various regulatory authorities (FDA, EMA, ...) with regard to process quality, documentation and proof of compliance.

Today’s automated environments

Both networked and non-networked controllers and devices are in use. Multiple shifts have to be taken into account. There is a need to keep processes running at an optimised level. Both in-house staff and external contractors continually change, improve and troubleshoot software. Existing facilites are modified and new facilities are commissioned. All this is done using a wide variety of programming tools, and documentation is often still done manually. If data is not organised properly, it can be extremely difficult  to find the right version of a control program, or to be sure about which version is running on a given device. This lack of clarity can adversely affect quality or result in downtime. And that can quickly become very costly.
