General Overview d-dispensing
d-dispensing is a Manufacturing execution system (MES) for the weighing and dispensing process in production areas and laboratories of Chemical, pharmaceuticals-, cosmetics-, food- or detergent-industry.
The key performance of a digitalized production can be described: it gradually puts away paper, systems and machines work together and automatically exchange production-related data. For the less manual effort of documentation, you will become faster, more efficient and will have fewer errors.
d-dispensing had been developed in a production area and in close contact with employees working in a pharmaceutical or cosmetic company day by day. Our goal is to make the process of weighing and dispensing as efficient and easy.
d-dispensing documents each step electronically on the centralized database alongside your current processes. Your flexibility is maintained - the switch of a production order or raw material is done within seconds.
By no longer required counterchecks in 4 or 6 eye principle, the effective productivity is at least doubled by using a system to do the double-checking.
Each step from opening the program until closing is log in a database to ensure a complete audit trail (CFR 21 Part 11).
Weighing protocols and completeness checks are an integral part of the program. The batch traceability is given down to single containers/quants. Each weighing protocol is generated automatically and is available at the push of a button as PDF, Excel-Fille or CSV-File.
To make your production and handling of hazardous material even safer, we integrated the hazard information and CLP labeling information of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). All hazardous information for raw materials is displayed immediately with the selection of a raw material. Hazardous information of the Toxnet Database (Toxicology and Environmental Health Information Program) is Displayed alongside. For Cosmetic usage, the Information (such as maximum concentration, usage area) of the Cosmetic ingredient database (COSING) is supplied.
Process reliability in each step and for each material is given. A reduction in operative overhead costs because of less administration and documentation are further benefits of using d-dispensing.
Cost effective working is not only regained by no counterchecks but also due to a seamless ERP integration - it eliminates to re-enter stock levels, even disposition is changed automatically.

Load Tasks/Order from ERP
Your Production Orders and/or weighing/dispensing tasks load by the push of a single button from your main ERP-System such as SAP S4/Hanna, Oracle or MyFactory (further Systems on request).
As soon as you selected a raw material and scanned the quant-number on the product, the raw material is checked with the database to ensure it is the correct material. Checks are also made to find part used Containers and to ensure FEFO and FIFO.
All Mettler-Toledo, Rhewa, Kern, Sartorius and many more scales are supported and will be linked directly to the software. Our goal is that you can concentrate on the weighing/dispensing process.
For each weight process, a new label is generated with all product information as well as net weight, tare value, and the gross weight and a unique identifier for each position. Traceability is given in each step.
The Quantities used are automatically sent back to the ERP-System. Stock and dispositions could be updated immediately.
Each Weighing process is logged in a database. E.g. Batch-Number, quant, product number, employee, production order, batch-number of production order.
