Technology Group International (TGI), a vendor of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for small to mid-sized manufacturers and distributors, has developed a version specifically for the pharmaceutical industry. The new tool offers numerous features that are specific to the life sciences sector, providing manufacturers with increased lot control, identification and tracking capabilities. The enhancements extend into order management, inventory control and shipping, so that users can improve product safety and respond quickly in the event of a recall campaign. Specific lot-control enhancements include optional lot distribution at time of work order creation; finished-goods lot control, which tracks lot numbers based on criteria such as machine, manufacture date, sequence, prefix or class; the ability to preserve lot integrity when repackaging or renumbering; pharmaceutical-based shelf-life tracking, and expiration date allocation.
