    To be an effective contributor to a transformed "low inventory - pull" medical products supply chain, manufacturing of pharmaceuticals must also transform. The large scale batch processing, in centralized facilities does not serve the new supply chain well. The need for flexibility and localization of manufacturing in Emerging Markets is becoming a primary objective for the development of new processing technologies in the pharmaceutical industry. This paper will describe some of the efforts that Pfizer and the industry in general, are putting into the concepts of continuous manufacturing, married together with integrated analytics and Advanced Control Systems. The combined technologies allow for rapid response to demand, through flexible low inventory supply streams that occupy a small footprint, and can be rapidly deployed to markets anywhere in the world. Interfacing PAT's into a continuous manufacturing system requires consideration of patient safety, compliance to existing standards but also supply flexibility and reliability. This paper will describe the on-going efforts to develop analytics and controls to respond to these considerations. Emphasis will be placed on the need for a measurement and control system that is based on the business need, as well as satisfying the need for patient safety and compliance.
