..to Deliver Real-Time Scheduling to Laboratories...
Basel (December, 12, 2012)- Vialis AG, the leading system integrator of laboratory data management systems for chemical and pharmaceutical industries in Central Europe has announced a strategic partnership with iFactory Inc. to deliver real-time scheduling ability to the life sciences laboratory environment. iFactory’s real-time scheduling complements Vialis’ expertise in life sciences process optimization and further strengthens their paperless lab concept integrating modular solutions in a single workflow.
iFactory has adapted its patented manufacturing scheduling algorithm to offer intelligent, real-time scheduling to the laboratory environment delivering increased instrument load, resource productivity and on-time release. iLAB’s ground-breaking functionality is possible because it is not tied to a set of predefined rules; instead it analytically explores a large solution space, compares possible schedules and automatically selects the best schedule based on the optimization criteria.
iLAB’s innovative technology empower managers with better control of lab operations and the ability to realize previously unattainable productivity. The scheduler enables lab managers to proactively explore “what-if” scenarios to assist in strategic decision making and resource planning. iLAB is also able to generate and send up-to-date duty roster to workstations, tablets and handhelds.
“We are excited to partner with Vialis adding real-time scheduling to their Paperless Lab Solutions portfolio. There is a real need for automated scheduling in laboratories due to stricter regulations, increased workloads, and increasingly complex processes. Our solution represents the next generation of scheduling. It considers all complexities and constraints of laboratory operations and delivers optimized schedules which increase productivity and efficiency using existing resources”, stated iFactory’s CEO, Rainer Thierauf.
“We see a tremendous need for real-time scheduling in the lab domain at most of our customers. iFactory’s technological capabilities adapted to the lab domain ideally complement the process optimization initiatives that we support at so many customers by improving resource utilization and shortening cycle times. iFactory’s patented scheduling engine is the optimal extension to any Paperless Lab environment guaranteeing higher operational efficiency and continuous improvement”, commented Dr. Ulf Fuchslueger, CEO, Vialis AG.

Facing Cross Industry Challenges in the Food and pharma Industries
Food companies are becoming pharma companies...
Pharma-foods, the intersection between food and pharmaceuticals, represent an area of growing opportunities for the food sector. Developing pro-active approach adapting QbD as a standard model and implementing new tools such as PAT, KQI and CQA will leverage learning’s from both industries. Agile processes integrating “intelligent Equipment” will result in a new system-landscape allowing a seamless dataflow from start-to-end.
- The mindset and human factor critical to adopt best practices in both industries
- Cross-industry learnings including deployment of PAT and QbD/6 sigma
- The changing role of the consumer interaction and how it may become part of the product life cycle.

Papierloses Labor hilft, Herausforderungen in Forschung, Entwicklung und Qualitätskontrolle zu meistern
Labors für Entwicklung und Qualitätskontrolle in der pharmazeutischen Industrie befinden sich in einem immer stärker ausgeprägten Spannungsfeld zwischen regulatorischen und wirtschaftlichen Anforderungen. Um diesen Anforderungen zu genügen, sind neue Wege des Prozess-, Daten- und Systemmanagements nötig. Das Papierlose Labor, verstanden als ganzheitliche Prozessinitiative, nicht als Systemeinführung, kann nicht nur diese Herausforderungen meistern, sondern darüber hinaus
