Novo Nordisk Brazil: World Market Leader In Diabetes Care Implements Newest PAS-X Version At One Of Its Largest Sites


18 Production Lines and TwoLines for Packaging / Excellent Go-Live Support by Werum

Novo Nordisk, the world market leader in diabetes care, implemented PAS-X V3.1.5 successfully at their Brazilian site in Montes Claros. With 18 production lines in five process areas, including lines for formulation, filling, inspection, assembling and packaging insulin pens, and two lines for tablet packaging, Montes Claros is one of the company’s largest sites.

PAS-X was rolled out with SAP in the context of the global PS@SAP program, Novo Nordisk’s largest ever IT initiative to install a globally standardized ERP/MES solution across all production sites. Montes Claros has been the fifth site on the PAS-X rollout plan. Since PAS-X V3.1.5 covers all major functionalities out of the box, only minor customizations were made.

"Werum's support as we went live was excellent, for example putting people on site short-term and providing support whenever needed," says Roberto Soares Toledo, Novo Nordisk's project manager in Brazil. "Since PAS-X is so flexible, user-friendly, and intuitive, it's possible to begin with the basics and then build on these, learning to use PAS-X step by step."
