First Packaging Equipment Vendors are “ATTP Ready”
After SAP launched SAP Advanced Track and Trace for Pharmaceuticals (or “ATTP” as it is now called in the market) in September, we always got the same question from our customers: “Can you integrate to my packaging line vendor?” While we could answer this question easily with a big “Yes, of course!”, this was still all theory. Even though we put a lot of effort into understanding the detailed requirements from our co-innovation customers, and defining open web-services to integrate with packaging line systems, we were still waiting for a real line system to be physically connected in a real project.
Now two of our partners did that step and integrated ATTP with an Optel Vision line system. Together, Movilitas and Optel Vision demoed this integration during their opening of their new joined demo facility in Frankfurt ( Press Release ). In a nice demo both the automated serialization unit as well as the manual case packing station were connected to Advanced Track & Trace, requesting serial numbers and reporting commissioned data back. Consumption of raw serial numbers as well as the hierarchy of the case could be reviewed and the messages were monitored.
So, congratulations for the first partners to be “ATTP ready”….And there are more to come!
