Vault Recording: TBD

Digital transformation, Pharma 4.0 and IIoT are not only buzzwords, but concepts that hold tremendous promise for pharma manufacturers. To realize that promise, however, the industry must move beyond today’s document-based approaches to key manufacturing activities—from initial tech transfer to ongoing process development.

This session will present an innovative yet proven approach centered on digital process design. Under this new paradigm, processes are digitally modeled and simulated, with the design environment tightly integrated with manufacturing and business management systems enterprise-wide. Real-world case studies will highlight how this design-based approach:

  • Provides a powerful backbone for digital transformation
  • Eliminates resource-intensive, error-prone manual processes
  • Dramatically improves product quality and cost-efficiency
