Driving Digitalisation

Pharmaceutical manufacturers are faced with the task of bringing new drugs to market as quickly as possible, without any compromise on quality or patient safety. A key driver of this demand is the time pressure faced in relation to the expiry of patents. Therefore, manufacturers need to move from R&D to production in the shortest possible time with minimum investment. Digitalisation and the adoption of emerging industrial digital technologies are set to play key parts in the delivery of such objectives.

Digitalisation is the technology focus behind Industry 4.0, and the central message about how it can enhance manufacturing and production capabilities is gaining steady traction. Advocates say its data-driven, highly connected world of seamless technology platforms will drive productivity improvements, promote agile production, aid competitiveness, and, ultimately, build business value and boost economic success.

The recent publication of the government-backed Made Smarter Review has set out a clear road map for the wide-scale adoption of emerging industrial digitalisation technologies and articulates how this can have a significant and positive economic impact. This includes a predicted £455 billion boost for the UK’s manufacturing base, an increase in manufacturing sector growth of up to 3% per annum, a net gain of 175,000 jobs, and a reduction of CO2 emissions by 4.5%.
