On Demand Webinar:

A Picture of Production  Contract Pharmacal Corp.


Contract Pharmacal Corp. (CPC) develops, manufactures, and packages premium pharmaceuticals, over-the-counter drugs, and dietary supplements. As part of one client contract, CPC built a dedicated plant with eight large-scale lines where they were required to provide their client insight into line capacity and production efficiency. To create this manufacturer-to-customer transparency and optimize operations, CPC turned to ACE to help design and implement a manufacturing execution system (MES) using the Parsec TrakSYS platform.


By deploying this new MES solution, ACE helped CPC overcome the following challenges discussed in the webinar:

  • Lack of high-visibility real-time production data
  • Minimal insight into the causes of downtime and factors affecting OEE
  • Lack of accurate reporting of equipment condition and specific triggers of machine stoppages
  • A communication barrier between operators, the maintenance staff, and the engineering group
  • Lack of transparency between shifts, primarily from second to first shift
  • Establishing targets and a path toward targeted production
  • Creating a real-time correlation between line progress and production plan timelines
