TechnoPharm just published a comprehensive article about the use of „AR in pharmaceutical production and packaging operations“ written by Robert Hoffmeister. You can download the full article below.
With the help of augmented reality (AR) technology, complex manual processes in pharmaceutical production or packaging environment can be carried out faster and more precisely. These could be, set-up, change over, line clearance or maintenance and servicing processes.
The technology allows the use of digital work instructions (SOPs) and enables paperless documentation through connection to an electronic batch record system (EBR).
In this article, different variants of Assisted, Mixed Reality (MR) or AR are discussed with regard to their advantages and disadvantages when used in pharmaceutical production and packaging.
Finally, the role of AR in the context of a digital transformation of pharmaceutical packaging is discussed.
