Ypsomed Pens

Integrated product lifecycle management at Ypsomed

The Swiss company Ypsomed AG is the world’s leading medical technology company in the area of injection systems for self-medication with a focus on diabetes. In the face of fierce competiti­on, Ypsomed responds with digital processes and integrated product data – on the basis of SAP PLM and the integration platform Engineering Control Center (ECTR). This guarantees process security, eases conformity with regulatory conditions, and enables a faster reaction to market requirements. Furthermore, it opens up profitable ways towards IoT (Internet of Things) – for innovative service concepts and a completely new quality of patient care. Fernand Portenier, Head of IT and Services at Ypsomed, reports here on what has been achieved so far and also on the next steps.

Product data plays a central role in our digital strategy. For digital processes are only efficient if the required data is available and in a suitable form. SAP PLM provides the basic functions for organizing data. In 2015, we used ECTR to connect our design to the SAP system, and in 2016, our toolmaking to the Factory Control Center (FCTR) add-on. We found DSC software ideal because it enables individual solutions to be implemented simply, fast, and economically. Also, ECTR and FCTR provide users with a “sexy” user interface: powerful, ergonomic, and intuitive. Plus: DSC has stood by us right from the start as implementation partner – providing requirements from analyses and conception to development and implementation to training and support. And that has paid off.
