  • A biotechnology company specializing in the design and manufacture of proteins was struggling with the incredibly time-consuming process of comparing the quality and yield of batches based on the chromatography peaks in Excel. A solution enabled them to capture quality and yield of chromatography peaks in addition to have the ability to share all the analyses \throughout the organization with auto-updating dashboards to track the column integrity, process yield, and quality in near real-time.

  • In order to maintain optimum production, it is critical to find a way to reduce the time and expense it takes to introduce a new pharmaceutical product to the marketplace. Replacement and validation of a new control system is both costly and time-consuming. It is typically performed by high-cost experts such as control systems engineers, validation specialists, and management. Seeq helps users to save time and increase efficiency with a tool allows users to identify a statistically-good control scheme based on the actual process variable (PV) and to detect deviations.

  • Batch manufacturing of chemicals entails many distinct phases. A large chemical manufacturer was struggling to analyze batch phase times for process improvement using Excel spreadsheets. Utilizing Seeq, process engineers can use process variables, formulas, and string signals to separate each batch into phases. This enables them to Identify the “best” cycle time for each phase and tune production variables (such as adjusting pump speeds or adding catalysts sooner) to replicate the ideal cycle.

  • How Seeq allows navigation to past production runs to find past production settings and visibility into the relationship between the production settings and key process KPIs, like quality or production rate.

  • All manufacturing industries suffer a variety of different performance losses including production losses, product quality losses, energy losses, raw materials losses, environmental/regulatory losses and others. These losses can negatively impact profitability, environmental stewardship, and even license to operate. A manufacturer needed a way to gain insight into the leading causes of production losses, finding those times when equipment was not running at capacity and categorizing the loss by reason. 

  • In order to raise efficiency and production standards, it is important to be able to analyze the performance of batch processes and identify time spent in each of the different process phases. Increased visibility into unproductive process time (for example during cleaning and maintenance and shift v shift differences in manual re-cleaning events) is necessary in order to enable users to take actions to reduce them. With the ability to increase production opportunities when reducing waiting times, overall profitability can also increase. 

  • Engineers and subject matter experts within operations settings are tasked with driving operational excellence to improve quality, safety, and throughput in production operations. The new technologies proliferating as part of Industry 4.0 initiatives are raising and expanding performance expectations. Rapid, data-driven insights are becoming critical to balance resiliency and agility with efficiency.

  • During a commercial campaign, a small-molecule pharmaceutical company needed to investigate the cause of crystallization deviations at the end of its batch processing. The manufacturer’s engineering team was experiencing difficulty in trying to get to the root of the problem using spreadsheets. By implementing a root cause analysis to determine the changes that might explain the circumstances surrounding the slow-filtering batch they were able to dramatically shorten the analysis time for the engineering team through integrative calculations and data analytics.

  • A pharmaceutical company was finding it difficult to aggregate data and perform analytics across multiple assets, as well as monitor KPIs for continuous pharmaceutical processes in near-real time. The company needed a dashboard to track and monitor the process parameters and identify deviations when they occur. This solution allowed the company’s quality engineers to create a continuously updating operational dashboard to monitor KPIs.

  • A major pharmaceutical manufacturer needed to improve the QbD modeling process it used in R&D, enabling it to avoid failed batches and deviations in production. A solution allowed them to analyze a continuous pharmaceutical drug product wet granulation step with a Design of Experiments (DOE) to determine a multivariate QbD process model. The goal was to apply the multivariate design space to commercial production for process monitoring and identification of deviations.

  • A large drug company needed to optimize CIP processes to improve efficiency while maintaining quality. To characterize the CIP process, the company needed to identify where it was spending time on CIP and to create process models directly from the data. Read how the team developed process models for each of the company’s CIP units and was able to identify excessively long procedures that represented overcleaning events.

  • Delayed lab results made it difficult for a pharmaceutical manufacturer to optimize process inputs to control the batch yield. A solution allowed the scientists to build a model of process quality. 

  • A large molecule pharmaceutical company was finding it difficult to reduce the time involved in pinpointing pilot drug batches that showed the best opportunity to be produced commercially. Implementing a solution that allowed them to combine lab and pilot plant data from different historians to visualize trends and perform advanced analytics resulted in faster process development, which meant the pharmaceutical company was better able to meet clinical timelines.

  • The data generation and collection strategies at the center of manufacturing processes have evolved dramatically, especially in recent years. Process manufacturers now collect and store huge volumes of data throughout their operations, both on and off premise, across multiple geographic locations, in an increasing number of separate data silos. In this paper, we propose five questions we believe every process manufacturing buyer should ask when evaluating a data analytics solution.

  • Often the first notification of a spill comes from a member of the public, hours and sometimes days after the first spill. This can intensify public health and environmental impacts and the cost of clean-up efforts. Following a sewer spill at an environmentally significant site at Midway Point in August 2017, TasWater sought a way to reduce the likelihood and impact of spill events occurring in the future.
