Digital Transformation from Instrument to Business Value: Industry 4.0 Implementation Strategies, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned from a Fully Digital Clinical Manufacturing Deployment Project

10:30 AM – 11:30 AM |

Digital Transformation from Instrument to Business Value: Industry 4.0 Implementation Strategies, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned from a Fully Digital Clinical Manufacturing Deployment Project

Advances in technology provide a vision for the future of biologic manufacturing, but the difficulty of identifying a successful strategy to implement the new technology, as well as up-front costs, have been prohibitive in delivering the vision of a fully digital shop floor.  Additionally, right sizing the architecture solution is dependent on the size, scale, and objective of a given process.  By defining and governing the manufacturing enterprise vision, an integrated data strategy can unlock the promise of digital manufacturing to enable a paperless shop floor, quality review by exception, and real-time data analytics.  The presentation will address the following primary takeaways:

– Strategy for designing the manufacturing digital architecture to align business goals, application capabilities, data models, and available technologies to enable digital transformation

– Understanding the technology integration options and their advantages and disadvantages

– Best practices and lessons learned from a fully digital clinical manufacturing facility
