Cyco Software , provider of engineering data management (EDM) software for process industries, has released a new package for pharmaceutical manufacturers. This module for AutoManager provides the technical controls needed for compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11 to manage cGMP engineering documentation throughout the enterprise. It helps bring products to market faster and boosts revenues while reducing errors in dealing with FDA and other government regulations.
