Improving Quality & Compliance and increasing Operational Excellence with Manufacturing Execution Systems in Pharma & Life Sciences Industries

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. New scientific bases for innovative products increase the complexity of manufacturing. Initiatives, such as targeted treatments and medicine tailored to specific subsets of patients, challenge the industry to change their supply strategy from a classic push-oriented model, to a pull-oriented model, already common in other industries.
In a regulated environment such as the pharmaceutical & Life Science Industry, it is imperative that 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. In addition, MES projects for international markets require new processes for batch records, validation and reporting. The pharma & life sciences industry was the driving force behind many of the concepts of MES, including genealogy, electronic signatures, quality control, specifications, batch execution, paperless batch etc. Of particular importance for this industry is to ensure process quality, efficiency and safety.
Process understanding will be the key to manage these challenges and to build an efficient pharmaceutical production. Manufacturers will have to turn to fully integrated IT solutions to achieve operational excellence.
In this regard Manufacturing IT such as Manufacturing Execution Systems is one of the key business enablers for reaching Operational Excellence. An MES controls, optimizes, and documents business processes executed on the shop floor in full compliance with all the pharmaceutical requirements. It is the goal of an MES to increase security and reliability of the manufacturing process and to improve product quality.
With international Top-Speakers at a senior executive level, the MES & Process Minds 2012 will establish a new approach in finding the right MES excellence strategy for pharma and life sciences industries.

We look forward to welcoming you!
