With regard to continuous manufacturing (CM) of solid dosage forms, such as the tablet, the continuous film coating process plays an ever-growing role. Supported by actions of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to introduce process analytical technology (PAT) and thus, generation of continuous process data, end-to-end monitoring of processes became possible   . At the same time, advances in the development of aqueous film coating systems led to significant improvements in process times and film tablet properties . Due to the latter advances and the introduction of PAT, CM is expected to continue to grow in importance in the pharmaceutical industry.
