LiveDOK for pharmaceutical companies

Always knowing what’s what

The operating of process plants in the pharmaceutical industry has very special documentation requirements. Numerous regulations of various health authorities have to be observed, and stringent qualification and validation processes according to EU-GMP guidelines need to be complied with. So for plant operators, drawing up and maintaining plant documentation absorbs great resources in terms of time and personnel, especially after production plants have been newly installed, modified or extended. Indeed, in order to get manufacturing or operating permission, any discrepancy between submitted plans and documents on the one hand, and actual realization in the plant on the other, has to be completely ruled out. The conditions for fulfilling this requirement are not favorable: speedy execution of documentation tasks is often hampered by a wide assortment of data formats and end devices, often still in conjunction with existing piles of paperwork.

LiveDOK by RÖSBERG greatly simplifies dealing with documents, frees up resources and ensures consistent quality. At the same time, the software solution improves your use of planned downtimes and simplifies maintenance, along with many other benefits.


Up-to-date, legally compliant documentation

Your process plants change in the course of time. Extension, modernization and other adaptations often deviate from the original planning documents drawn up for the purpose.


Planned downtimes and loop-checks

When your pharmaceutical plant is shut down for its scheduled inspection/ overhaul, a race against time begins. Every day the plant is at a standstill costs substantial sums of money.



Where to find the plans you need among all those files? Do the plans really reflect as-built status? And how are you going to transfer the ongoing redlining reliably into a current version of the documentation?



If everything is not running perfectly in your plant, you need to react quickly. Collecting all the necessary documents relevant to as-built status can take valuable minutes – or even hours.


On-boarding of personnel, securing and transferring know-how

The hour of truth comes when you need to familiarize new specialists with your plant: if documentation is inadequate or difficult to access, fast on-boarding – which would free up your resources for other things – will not be a possibility.


Administering your assets

As soon as a manufacturer announces that they will be discontinuing one – or several – of your assets, this often triggers a search on a grand scale. Exactly where, how often and in what form factor are these components installed – for which there will shortly be no spares and no more support?


Integration of Package Units

When simply embedded in your existing infrastructure, package units contribute real value added. But how can the documentation delivered together with a functional unit be transferred as simply as possible into the already-existing plant documentation?
