Accelerating Manufacturing Efficiency
As the use of the robotics in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry increases rapidly, it’s important to consider the benefits of the latest technologies for manufacturers, researchers and scientists. The advantages include greater speed and accuracy, more flexibility and more reliability and driven by the need to waste less time and money, pharmaceutical manufacturers are trying to find new ways to maximize throughput and increase efficiency.

What the pharma industry is learning – is that automated solutions and robotics support much more than just increased productivity. These technologies pave the way for smoother good manufacturing practice (GMP) compliance and operational excellence. They improve product safety and subsequently, patient safety.

It has also been forecast that 44% of pharmaceutical companies have implemented or are in the process of automating operations this year and whereas the majority of quality control measures were once done manually, automated systems have now been implemented to help eliminate errors.

With this is mind, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Automation event, 18th and 19th May 2021 will focus on how automation has been transforming the pharmaceutical industry.

DAY ONE l 18th MAY 2021 

9.00am EST Session Reserved for MasterControl 
    10.00am EST Integrating the Patient Pathway into the Technology Ecosystem
      The rapid progress in the pharmaceutical industry is due to the advancement in the digitalization and automation starting from the invention to the administration of the drug. This session will look to address strategies for the end-to-end digitalization and automation in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
      • Utilising digitalisation and automation in production and manufacturing systems, as well as maintaining the quality and standard of the drug product
      • Strategies to assessing manufacturing execution to driving greater compliance and efficiency
      • Describing the challenges with adopting automation and how the pace of change can be a significant hurdle to overcome with internal cultural mindset shift and change

      Sidhartha Shankar, Business Technology Lead, Pfizer

    11.00am EST Going Big on Data and Digital to Improve Manufacturing Accuracy and Efficiency 
     This session will address:
    • Utilising centralized data to experiment with new optimization models to help ramp up the production of innovative, personalized treatments
    • Understanding how IoT can improve visual inspections of manufacturing sites
    • Monitoring risks to manufacturing production, such as unplanned downtime or delays
    12.00pm EST The Adoption of Automation: To Automate or Not to Automate? 
    This session will address: 
      • Assessing automation as a substitute for human intervention
      • Flexible automation, the acceleration of production and real-time decision-making
      • Reacting to change and small-scale manufacturing efficiently

                                                                                        DAY TWO l 19TH MAY 2021

    9.00am EST Automation of Continuous Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Process
    This session will address: 
    • Integrating a centralized control platform so that the whole plant can be operated automatically
    • Understanding how increased control of manufacturing processes will make it possible to obtain reproducible and more reliable results for patients
    • Analysing how continuous monitoring of operations can reduce unplanned machine downtime by 40%
    10.00am EST Does Modularization Pave the Way to Enhanced Automation Process? 
    This session will address:

    • Understanding the importance of standardisation

    11.00am EST Is the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Industry Cyber Resilient?
    This session will address: 
    • Which departments are usually involved in cyberattacks? Which interfaces exist? Which tools and methods are used?
    • How to analyse the attack, restrict the damage, and eventually fight off attacks
    • How to optimise the reaction to future cyberattacks and diminish possible damages
    12.00pm EST Manufacturing of the Future: Exploring the Strategic Potential of Digitalization
    This session will address: 
    • Assessing the impact of digitalisation across the E-2-E value chain
    • Understanding what obstacles related to the implementation and appropriation of these breakthrough technologies still hinder their deployment on a larger scale
    • Developing, training, and supporting staff to acquire the skills to analyse information and master these cutting-edge technologies in a transformation
