Orion RM Administrator
Used by groups who maintain and track a library of incoming raw materials Also, used to attach and track supplemental information (e.g. MSDS or Certificate of Analysis)

Orion FM Quality
Used to enter results from formula testing Simplifies the process of selecting, analysis, and tracking formula results When used with FM Analyst, simplifies submission of formulas for testing

Orion FM Stability
Used to track shelf-life of products Simplifies the process of preparing, fielding, tracking, and reporting stability information Allows user to quickly build a stability protocol using previous tests or a standardized library Provides sample labels and pull instructions

Orion FM Pilot
Used to scale up lab formulas to a pilot environment Provides additional screens and fields to make it easy to track key production variables Batch disposition, packaging and yield accounting functions When tied into RM inventory system, users can check and order needed raw materials Seamless integration with Visio makes it easy to design and store processing schematics

Orion FM Management
Used to review and approve formulas and related information Creates an approval path based on user input and required review team is notified Gives you the ability to track the approval process

Orion FM Analyst
Used to add analytical information to the formula's profile User submits formulas electronically to analytical dept., specifying testing to be conducted, analyst is notified. Testing results are then added to the formula profile and submitter is notified Formulator submits sample for testing, analyst is notified, then results are entered into the formula profile with notification to the formulator
