The solution decreases the facility space required by 40%, lessens water usage and waste by 85%, and lowers the overall cost of finished products by 32%


FlexFactory, from Massachusetts-based Xcellerex, utilises AVEVA to create biotherapeutics and vaccines manufacturing solutions more efficiently.


  • Address the growing demands in the biomedical market space for more effective biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes
  • Develop a solution that would define a model for improving how biopharmaceuticals, vaccines and other therapeutics are developed, manufactured and commercialized


  • Integrating complex technology with ultra-high levels of functionality was considered the greatest challenge in creating a bio-manufacturing platform that employs a single-use technology, controlled environment modules, process automation, and electronic batch records


  • Xcellerex FlexFactory enables companies to achieve significant cost savings in several areas, including a capital investment reduction that can exceed 60%
  • The solution decreases the facility space required by 40%, lessens water usage and waste by 85%, and lowers the overall cost of finished products by 32%
  • FlexFactory reduces deployment time from three to five years to 12 to 18 months, which enables the production of high-value products two to four years sooner than traditional technology
  • The solution achieves an overall reduction in development time of nearly 60%, with an estimated 80% saving in rework time, which reduces costs and shortens time to market

"With the integration of AVEVA software, Xcellerex has been able to deploy FlexFactory manufacturing capacity very quickly, resulting in an overall reduction in development time of nearly 60%. This directly impacts customers with reduced costs and shorter time to market. In fact, we’ve been able to reduce deployment time from 3-5 years to an amazing 12-18 months. This results in huge implementation savings and the ability to begin producing high-value product 2 to 4 years sooner than traditional technology."
