Siemens announces that Sinocare, a Chinese manufacturer of biosensor technology and rapid diagnosis testing products, has selected the Camstar Enterprise platform to build its manufacturing execution system (MES). The MES project aims to help Sinocare realize visibility, traceability and regulatory compliance enforcement in the production process, and build a foundation for future global operation.
Established in 2002, Sinocare has grown to be one of the leading providers of rapid diagnosis testing and monitoring products for medical use in China. Its leading products include blood glucose monitoring systems and mobile sample testing devices. Due to recent global expansion, the company found an urgent need for a digital enterprise platform to improve its manufacturing operation, as well as conform to regulatory pressure from FDA, CFDA and ISO. Sinocare has been looking for suitable MES solutions to overcome these challenges and digitally transform manufacturing operations.
The Camstar Medical Device Suite, Siemens’ leading MES system for companies of this sector, helps prevent process errors and supports paperless manufacturing and electronic device historic records (eDHR). According to Sinocare, the Camstar Medical Device Suite is the most effective solution to assist medical and diagnosis device companies to deal with challenges of keeping balance among reducing production costs, ensuring regulatory compliance enforcement and maintaining a high level of product quality. In the long term, Sinocare plans to fully achieve global manufacturing with the MES system and fully transform to a digital enterprise with Siemens’ solutions.
With the latest release, medical device and diagnostic manufacturers can now leverage advanced scheduling features to eliminate non-value-added activities, balance production demand and capacity, analyze the impact of unexpected events and run what-if analysis to compare production alternatives and optimize the manufacturing schedule. In addition, new integration with the Teamcenter portfolio enables closed-loop product development and manufacturing to enforce production processes and quality. Highlighting shop floor manufacturing deviations through 3D images, escalating them back to engineering for analysis and driving process improvement engineering changes back to manufacturing are key benefits of the Siemens’ digital enterprise value stream.
