The clinical supply unit of Janssen Pharmaceutica (re-)automated the packing process. It creates and packs medication for clinical trials. Today, Johnson & Johnson in Beerse is organising all clinical trials for the whole group.
Future-proof technology, paperless operation and flexibility were the key drivers for a new system. The packaging process is one of the most critical in the clinical supply chain. Safety must be 100% guaranteed.
J&J and Ordina built a brand new system. This improves the throughput time, stock levels, flexibility at the same time as cutting costs.
Ordina, preferred supplier of J&J, handled the design of the technical architecture and integration with SAP. Ordina also handled the entire development process. It provided the necessary competencies in SAP (R/3, NetWeaver NWDI, PI, J2EE and Web Dynpro for Java), Adobe Flex, Eclipse GMF/EMF and Oracle database.
