Use Case

Improving production quality for Pharmaceutical manufacturing

Process manufacturing faces challenges with predicting outcomes of production mixes and the impact on final product quality. In pharmaceutical manufacturing, this challenge presents itself as an all or nothing proposition. If an end product doesn’t meet quality standards, all work done to that point becomes waste.

Developing new methods of accounting for production and material variables helps reduce experimentation before all chemicals are combined and consumed.

With improved simulation and experimentation, R&D timeframes can be reduced, allowing products to reach markets at a faster pace and with less waste.

We have a solution

Using a Digital Twin to predict and improve manufacturing results.

This solution use case, provided by Atos on the MindSphere® platform, enables smarter production decision making for Pharmaceutical manufacturers.

AI, IoT & advanced analytics represent a new approach to improving process manufacturing with the use of a Digital Twin. The digital twin enables a connected yet virtual production process that allows organizations to ensure variables in materials and the production environment are properly accounted for in forecasting the quality of production output. Reducing production waste can create 20% savings on costs.

Enabling manufacturers to make adjustments before all ingredients are combined helps ensure quality levels are met with greater frequency. In the end, this contributes to an increase of up to 10% in product margins.


  • Digital process twin enables in-silico experimentation, significantly reducing materials consumed.
  • Linking the physical production environment to the digital twin enables improved optimization and accuracy.
  • Simulation of chemical mixing process with multiple variant testing.
  • Enables in-line adjustments to processes to ensure end product meets specifications.


  • Improve time to market for pharmaceutical products.
  • Save up to 20% on costs related to production waste.
  • Improve product margins by up to 10% through improved product quality and consistency.
