Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

Pharmaceutical manufacturing often involves developing proprietary process control strategies and analytics that are not easily programmed in conventional industrial control systems used in production facilities.

MathWorks software provides capabilities for developing hardware-independent applications for batch and continuous processing monitoring, and for model-based and multivariate statistical process control. This helps scientists and engineers validate the process control strategy and analytics in early stages, when design changes are easier and less expensive to make. Specific capabilities include:

  • Generating C code and .NET applications
  • Creating standalone or web applications for process monitoring
  • Data access from databases, via OPC, and directly from instruments

These applications can migrate as the product moves from the lab bench to pilot plants to actual production, smoothing the transition of a new drug from concept to production.
