Controlling sophisticated equipment, analyzing large amounts of data, and generating reports are just a few of the tasks that drugmakers rely on software to execute. Information technology performs calcluations much faster than humans can, thus saving time and improving companies' understanding of their products and processes. This month's products illustrate some of the ways that software can aid pharmaceutical manufacturers. Copley Scientific's solution analyzes quality-control data. SyTech's software presents information in a familiar format that is easily shared. A module from Emerson uses predictive diagnostics and provides real-time analysis of asset health.
Software provides improved data analysis
In addition, the software is now available with the new Waters Empower import spreadsheet, which removes the need to transfer chromatography results manually into the software during data workup. The spreadsheet is designed to save time and reduce the chance for error.

The software enables clients to create key performance indicators and monitor overall equipment effectiveness. If asset performance deteriorates, the software sends email notifications to specified employees at the plant and enterprise levels.
Reporting software offers analytical capabilities
Any client on a network can produce consistently formatted reports and share the results with other departments. Managers can run high-level reports from their office without having to visit the factory floor to stay informed. Users can program the software to deliver reports automatically to desktops, printers, smart phones, and email accounts. Reports also can be viewed from Team clients. The product integrates easily into existing data systems without requiring additional hardware. In addition, the software supports industry data standards.
