Pharma 4.0: Modernizing Manufacturing With Analytics

This webinar, part of our "Analytics in 20" series, will cover the role of analytics in pharmaceutical manufacturing for improving quality and efficiency.

About the webinar

Pharmaceutical manufacturers need a fully digitalized, GMP-compliant manufacturing process to improve both quality and efficiency.

In order to achieve this, they need an end-to-end analytics strategy to model, simulate, trace and investigate the root cause of defects and constantly analyze quality.

Join us for a discussion around the role of analytics in pharmaceutical manufacturing to improve:

  • Availability – with optimization and prediction analytics to minimize micro-downtimes of the packaging line.
  • Quality – through early prediction of final test failures.
  • Throughput – by using a digital twin to optimize the manufacturing process.
