Life sciences producers are faced with a multitude of new challenges. Economic pressures like globalisation, litigation and government mandated pricing threaten operating margins, while an ever-changing regulatory environment makes it harder to stay compliant. Additionally, new scientific bases for innovative products increase the complexity of manufacturing.
Using Manufacturing Execution Systems, means facing these challenges successfully. Manufacturing shop floor information is visible in the boardroom on a real time, or near real time basis to enable informed decision-making throughout the supply chain. An MES facilitates requirements for processes such as batch records, validation and reporting.
Understanding the process is the key for managing these challenges and for building an efficient pharmaceutical production. Manufacturers will have to turn to fully integrated IT solutions to achieve operational excellence.
The MES & Process Minds 2014 will discuss challenges and solutions in managing MES for pharma & life sciences industry with peers from all over the world. With over 120 of the leading opinion makers, the MES & Process Minds 2014 will be the definitive event for the industry.
