True Benefits of Manufacturing Information Systems through Vast Integration

According to many analysts and business watchers, the pharmaceutical industry will take the lead in undertaking further investments in manufacturing automation and information systems in the near future. Many of them will have to, in order to turn the growing challenges they face into opportunities that set them aside from their competitors.

Challenges Pharmaceutical Manufacturers must Face

Firstly, there is an ever increasing legislative pressure forcing companies to keep records of everything in such a way that it can be reviewed at any time legislators see fit. This doesn't only mean that more detailed information will have to be managed, but also that demands on the security and accessibility of these records increases. To enable a more efficient and effective validation and compliance to new FDA regulations such as CFR 21 part 11, pharmaceutical manufacturers will have to reduce paperwork and manual processes. Furthermore, competition in the pharmaceutical industry is getting heavier, with ever faster introductions of generic variants of branded pharmaceuticals putting pressure on margins and profitability. Therefore manufacturers need to cut costs and increase the variability of their product range. This development increases the need for a highly flexible and able manufacturing process combining agility with robustness and reliability, so that product development and manufacturing will be optimally aligned.
