Best Practice at Siegfried Hameln

Best Practice digitale Produktion. FASTEC 4 PRO im Einsatz bei der Siegfried AG Hameln, Anwenderbericht
Optimization potential, real-time data and quality assurance

Siegfried, the world’s leading CDMO (Custom Development and Manufacturing Organization), produces active pharmaceutical ingredients, intermediates and finished products from a single source. Its core competence lies in the integration of complementary chemical and pharmaceutical competencies in a single business model.

In our hot-off-the-press user report, the focus is on the site in Hameln, where production has been optimized with FASTEC 4 PRO for over ten years. Siegfried Hameln primarily produces parenterals, i.e. liquid medicines that bypass the digestive tract and are administered intravenously or intramuscularly. Siegfried Hameln is also active as a contract manufacturer and produces pharmaceutical products (including anaesthetics, painkillers and drugs for intensive care) for other companies. The majority of the products manufactured are used internationally.

Previously, data acquisition at Siegfried Hameln was carried out exclusively via manual data entry and reports. When a new building for the sterile filling of parenterals was built in Hameln, Siegfried Hameln’s vision was clear: paperless production in the cleanroom area of the new building. After a 6-month test phase, the FASTEC 4 PRO software solution was gradually rolled out to all machines and Work centers.

Another important requirement for the introduction of digital data acquisition at Siegfried Hameln was the possibility of validation in accordance with GAMP 5. Its use now extends far beyond the production level. FASTEC meets all of Siegfried Hameln’s individual requirements for a software solution for digital production optimization. All managers have the FASTEC 4 PRO Office Client on their end devices. Large screens have been placed in the production area to provide visibility of the current production status at all times. Outside of production, departments such as controlling or quality analysis use the real-time data. The software also serves as a signal generator for quality control.


Digitalization – at all levels.

Cloud? We can do that! With our new products pvaPRO, smartOEE and FASTedge, companies receive turnkey systems and benefit from us as a solution partner throughout the entire project period and beyond.


FASTedge SFT15

The 15-inch touch terminal is required for each machine. It has a universal RFID reader and two digital inputs for machine connection as standard.

FASTedge Box

Both the terminals and the machines are connected to the EdgeBox via LAN or WiFi. The cloud connection is made via your network or mobile communications. At least one EdgeBox is required. The system can later be moved to your own server.


Personal users are required to report the collected data. The number of employees involved in data acquisition in your production does not matter.


Each line and machine in your production is licensed individually.
