    Blog: Best Practices Specifying MES Workflows for Life Sciences Projects

    Author: Jonathan Lustri Manufacturing Execution System (MES) Life Sciences projects can be costly and be a challenge to keep in control. The biggest contributor to these challenges are the defining and design of manufacturing workflows. A Workflow is an MES procedural object used to replace the paper batch record. And for greenfield projects in particular, this can be a challenge. In order to define best practices...
