Behind the deployment of the Qubes solution
In 2013, HORIBA Medical (HORIBA ABX SAS), the French medical business segment of the Group, decided to computerize its production lines with an information system to automate and dematerialize electronic batch documents (DHR – Device History Record or manufacturing file), which were previously paperbased.
In 2019, following the successful launch at HORIBA Medical in France, its headquarters HORIBA, Ltd. decided to deploy the Qubes platform solution throughout its Japanese sites.
Building on this corporate philosophy, HORIBA, Ltd. selected the Qubes solution to further enhance product quality throughout its lifecycle.
The main features deployed for this ongoing project are:
– Documentation on the operator station;
– ERP interfaces;
– List of values / checklist;
– FDA-compliant 21 CFR part 11;
– Surveillance of selected parameters (SPC functions);
– Automatic connection to scales; and
– Improved traceability: bar-code label scanning and computerization of manual entries.
A new adventure in the medical devices industry is born for Creative IT and the Qubes software suite in an international context where professional procedures differ from European models. Qubes has successfully risen to this worldwide challenge, even down offering operator interfaces and administration operations in Japanese!
