CHEMISTRY 4.0: DIGITALIZATION
IN THE PROCESS INDUSTRY
Industry 4.0 has made great strides in the chemical and cosmetics
industry and their production companies have also been active in this
field for many years. Those who are not connected, remain behind.
Because the future of industrial production is in Chemistry 4.0, the
Smart Factory – a symbiosis of man and machine.
This intelligent factory of the future is characterised by the digital
networking of all individual subsystems and process steps. The industry
is meeting the challenges of rapid automation and digitalization with
great interest and a high level of dynamics. Specialists from the pharmaceutical,
chemical, biotechnology, food, beverages and cosmetics
industry see a promising future ahead. The most striking benefits of
process manufacturing focused on Industry 4.0 are:

• Reduction in Operating Costs
Chemistry 4.0 conquered international process and laboratory
technology and creats versatile ressources already before the
production processes right at the beginning of the value chain.
The heart of each product is the formulation. Whether chemical,
cosmetic or pharmaceutical products, the smart selection of
raw materials is crucial if a product idea is to become a success.
Because of the present speed of product innovations, a thorough
formulation development and implementation procedure under
consideration of high quality standards and safety parameters
takes place under extreme time and cost pressure.
Chemical One provides valuable resources as a
clever software solution. Your laboratory information
and management system is optimised
by integrating powerful LIMS features, and all
data, even the use of raw materials, is available
on the system at any time. The industry
solution Chemical One is a valuable assistant
tool which simplifies the development of
formulations completely, and consequently
contributes to the success of your company.
• LIMS Functionalities
• Comprehensive Formulation Calculation
• Raw Material and Component Optimization
EFFICIENT PLANNING AND
A manufacturing company is only efficient if all production processes
are optimally tailored to the workflow. Chemistry 4.0 gives
every medium-sized company the ability to improve important
corporate divisions, like raw material procurement, material allocation
and production procedures and to get the best output out
of all production processes.
Chemical and cosmetic companies are able to optimally meet their
production challenges with Chemical One. An exact value and
consumption management, the integration of production values
like scales or measuring devices, a throughout batch management
from raw material to end product as well as an optimized residual
and return quantity management, lead to more transparency and
to a more efficient production planning.
• MRP Functionalities
• Resource Management
• Production Planning
• Capacity Utilization
With an intuitive control of production orders, mixing, filling and
packaging processes are linked through intelligent batch management
and extensive batch characteristics. Bulk production can be
extended with variants; therefore, modifications can be made to
existing formulations on the fly during the production procedures.
Using the Chemical One feature „joint production“,
it can also be determined exactly which
by-products will result from the individual steps
of the bulk production, or you can also easily
add substances as by-products during the
Container filling, including an exact volume
and weight management is made easy with
Chemical One. Real-time data is entered
constantly during production due to machine
connections and value processing. A legally compliant labelling
is carried out automatically. The optimized inventory management
enables a better planning of filling orders from „just-in-time
orders“ to long-term production.
• Bulk Production
• Container Filling
• Process Reliability
DIGITAL SUPPLY CHAIN
FOR EFFICIENT LOGISTICS
Digitalization not only simplifies the delivery of goods, it makes
the entire value chain more efficient. Trough SAP Business One in
combination with Chemical One, all relevant data for the purchase
orders, order fulfilment and planning are visible immediately and
in real time.
To ensure the best possible traceability of goods,
shipping units are provided with a globally
unique SSCC (Serial Shipping Container Code).
The benefits go far beyond simply tracking.
Deliveries are seamlessly recorded, automatically,
from storage through to relocation, to
the final transfer. Starting the SSCC identification
right at the begin of the production
will result in many benefits for all parties involved
within the transport chain, and throughout the entire supply chain
management. Furthermore, inventory movement is simplified, and
consumption management and material requirement planning are
automatically optimized. Great potential is also offered for procurement
of raw materials regarding price and inventory optimization
via the connection to a global sourcing portal.

• Batch Management
• Purchasing Optimization

Customers love quality. Through a sophisticated quality management,
you are only satisfied with the highest product quality.
With Chemical One, activities for testing
processes can be added directly to the
master data of the products or business
partners. You can define testing instructions
according to your QA relevant
specifications. Using an intelligent
activity management, the responsible
employees will then receive a personal
to-do list of testing instructions
in real time. In addition, protocols
including testing instructions, value ranges and
measured values can be managed in Chemical One and are assigned
to each specific process step – exactly where quality tests
are really necessary. Of course, the „quality management“ module
is also easily accessible on mobile devices, such as smartphones or

SAFELY UNDER CONTROL
The specially developed „hazardous material management“
module provides more safety in the production process. Chemical
One can be directly connected to existing hazardous material
management systems via an integrated interface. This significantly
simplifies the workflow and creates more efficiency
in the daily work.
Safety data sheets, hazardous goods delivery
notes or labels can be created quickly,
up-to-date, and always compliant to legal
requirements. The substance and mixture
identifications are always maintained in
compliance with the law by integrating
established hazardous material and hazardous
goods databases. Hazardous substance
characteristics are automatically stored using this integration,
from the raw material up to the complete and filled container.
All relevant hazardous material data is considered along the entire
route of delivery and all delivery channels – conforming to international
law by inclusion of all regulations valid from the country
of origin to the destination.
