InfoWorks was asked to design a data warehouse that enabled the manufacturing client to meet FDA requirements for tracing quality data in order to limit quality-related risks.
A multi-billion-dollar, multi-site manufacturing company maintained several systems to track product ingredients and batch traceability of their production process. These records were created and maintained to comply with FDA regulations, deliver a consistent, high-quality product, and allow for complete product traceability.
However, because the data lived within multiple systems, assembling the data needed to provide full traceability for a single batch spanned multiple days. InfoWorks was hired to design and build a data warehouse to maintain the data from these multiple systems.
InfoWorks documented the processes and associated data for each individual system. The information was then consolidated and migrated to the data warehouse, creating a single source for all product traceability.
InfoWorks leveraged the data warehouse to produce various reports that enable users to quickly pull data for any single product, its ingredients, and the ingredients of those ingredients, into a single report.
- Created and implemented a data warehouse for the client, allowing users to extract data for any product, into a singular report.
- This warehouse significantly decreased the time needed to gather key data from days to seconds as well as reduced risk from any required FDA audits.
