Cloud Based Manufacturing Execution System (MES) For Pharmaceutical Manufacturers

Apprentice MES

Get from kickoff to first batch-run in days, not months.

Accelerate process design without any code
Put power in the hands of your team. With intuitive, no-code procedure and recipe authoring designed for process scientists and process engineers, your teams can configure Tempo without code.

Collaboratively author recipes with teammates and experts

Tempo allows users from your organization – or even across CDMO and their customers – to author recipes together in real-time with live group-editing collaboration tools.

Create intelligent procedures out-of-the-box

Users can quickly create intelligent workflows with advanced capabilities like parallel execution, branching, and enforcement logic, as well as integrate referenceable parameters, formulas, equipment, materials, and operator actions, without a single line of code.

Augment procedures for better operator execution

Any user can also add augmented  guidance – photos, videos, and AR overlays– to any step of a procedure.

Despite incredible therapeutic innovations, the process for manufacturing these life-changing drugs lagged behind.

Because of the largely paper-based processes involved in pharma manufacturing, millions of dollars were lost in drug batches due to quality deviations. These legacy processes just weren’t going to hold up to the demands of new therapies – biologics, cell, and gene.

Make correct first-time execution the operating standard

Work where you are, not where your workstations are
Our native mobile app and hands-free, voice-enabled headset moves with you. Tempo is optimized for use in all environments – the suite, cleanrooms, and while wearing PPE.

Follow augmented instructions for more accurate execution
Operators can follow audio or text instructions enhanced with photo, video, and AR overlay directions that are specific to the equipment and layout in their suite to make each procedure step crystal-clear.

Reduce human error with system intelligence
Our no-code IoT integrations automatically capture data from equipment readouts in the procedure log, while programmable guardrails prevent operators from completing a step when values deviate from defined ranges and calculate formulas automatically.

Easily track and manage resources

Accurately capture your resource management structure
With customizable hierarchies, profiles, and statuses, create a definition of materials, equipment, and locations that reflects how your facility manages resources.

Manage material inventory in real-time
Oversee the lifecycle of materials and work-in-process inventory with weigh and dispense and inventory management capabilities that update in real-time, as inventory is used inside and outside of batches.

Precisely track equipment status and use
Track the status and usage of equipment in the context of batch runs with equipment management. Use system-generated QR labels or 1d and 2d barcodes to scan-in equipment when it’s used in procedure.

Release batches faster with built-in quality control

Out-of-the-box quality management and batch review
Built-in conditions and exceptions provide out-of-the-box review and release by exception. A robust electronic signature system is compliant with 21 CFR Part 11. Integrate with your QMS to keep a centralized quality log.

Optimize product quality in real-time
Review exceptions as they happen. With Tempo, you can streamline batch review to immediately remedy exceptions – rather than waiting months and following a paper trail.

Get the full picture of quality with detailed data capture
Our built-in Electronic Batch Record (EBR) captures every value, action, exception, and activity of the batch run – and supports manual exceptions with videos, photos, and AR overlays.

Build batches that scale with your operation

Use templates that make the transition through lifecycle stages
Scale batches using easily parameterized and generic recipes that expedite the transition from preclinical, to clinical, to commercial.

Create no-code integrations with the manufacturing suite
Integrate with your control systems, like SCADA, Historian, QMS, ERP, OSIsoftPI, using out-of-the-box connectors so Tempo is connected through each stage of development.

Manage your operations from a single dashboard
With one-page dashboards for batch and procedure execution, you will always have visibility into real-time execution across all your teams and sites.
