GUS-LAB - Version LABS/QM - ERP Middleware Laboratory Software
An ERP is used in almost all chemical/petrochemical and pharmaceutical companies worldwide and, with e.g. a QM module, fulfills numerous functionalities that were previously reserved for classic LIMS and CAQ systems. For example, the SAP PLM QM module does not offer any possibilities for a direct connection to the laboratory equipment level and thereby comes up against acceptance limits, especially in the case of more extensive examinations (e.g. GC, HPLC, ICP, XRF, etc.) as well as in the regulated environment. Manual transmission of measured values already available in electronic form thus leads to considerably more effort and errors. With regard to developments such as IoT or Industry 4.0, the availability of complete measurement data including raw data is also desired and of outstanding importance, especially in vertical integration.
ERP Middleware Laboratory Software for the Step to Industry 4.0
Our software solution LABS QM
As an SAP partner, we also successfully support customers in the SAP environment. For example, we support the customer in the configuration of the SAP PLM QM module, in the creation and adaptation of function modules and we also train the customer in the use of the QM module. Furthermore, the SAP middleware LABS/QM of the LABS Suite offers optimal functionalities to connect any measuring devices and measuring systems directly to SAP QM. In addition to the automatic measuring device connection, a mobile option for manual recording of measurement data is also provided.
ERP middleware Laboratory software to increase efficiency
The middleware also offers the possibility of recording and centrally archiving supplementary information, such as the use of all measuring instruments used, as well as chemicals with quantities, and images, evaluations, etc., right down to the raw data of the measuring instruments. This enables a GxP/FDA compliant workflow. In addition, the middleware LABS/QM also increases the degree of automation in the laboratory and thus contributes significantly to an increase in efficiency of the employees and to a resulting cost reduction of the entire laboratory workflow. LABS Suite has interfaces certified by SAP (see current SAP certificate). These web service based interfaces can be adapted to the actual needs by simple configuration. The LABS/QM middleware can be used as a standalone solution as well as in the HANA Cloud Platform (HCP) with the HANA database. Especially when using HCP and HANA database, the entire information up to the raw data is available for evaluation.
