DHC GmbH I Location Saarbruecken

As part of the SAP project “CAPISCE”, Dr Rudi Herterich was involved in the development of the SAP industry solution “Production Planning for the Process Industry (PP-PI)” and supervised the first productive implementation in the GMP-critical environment. The deep SAP and industry expertise he had acquired in this and other SAP projects at leading pharmaceutical companies prompted him to found his own consulting firm, DHC Dr. Herterich und Consultants GmbH, in Saarbrücken in 1996. His goal was to support companies in the pharmaceutical industry and life sciences in the introduction of PP-PI and QM.

Due to the increasing requirements for the validation of computer systems, DHC soon developed a process-oriented approach for the introduction and prospective validation of SAP systems in the life science industry. 25 years later, DHC is one of the leading consultancies for SAP, QM as well as GxP compliance and computer system validation (CSV) in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries.
