Pharma Manufacturing Is at a Crossroads
The life science industry, specifically pharma manufacturing, is at a crossroads. Processes continue to become more complex and less automated as the industry shifts from small molecule batches to more elaborate biologics, setting the stage for the most sophisticated of all – personalized medicine. We’ve gone from one pill for many to one pill for one person as we develop a world in which treatments are precisely tailored to the individual characteristics of each patient.
As drug development becomes more complex, and more people around the world require access to treatment, the demands placed on the life science industry and its workforce continue to increase, making it critical that organizations maintain the highest level of quality and safety while maintaining compliance.
However, these vital, disruptive drug innovations can’t succeed without transformational technology that supports the process. The life science organizations best positioned to succeed in tomorrow’s market will be the ones that understand how the adoption of transformational technology today will impact competitive positions in the future.
Traditional EBR and MES Systems Cannot Keep Up with Present-Day Demands
While drug discovery and development become increasingly sophisticated, the traditional EBR and MES systems used to carry out these processes are not equipped to handle the industry’s present-day demands and changes.
They fail to support the future of pharma and the challenges life sciences will face, making this the ideal time for technological transformation.
The life science industry needs a complete, intelligent system that will not only support processes now, but in the future, when smart manufacturing will be the only way that organizations can truly compete and succeed.
Intelligent technology promises to deliver organizations not just from paper to digital, but into this new intelligent world of smart manufacturing that operates with a meticulous eye toward the future. With the right technology in place, the potential for success is limitless.
