What's your view on the industry?
"Automation and IT is an integrated part of modern manufacturing facilities. Developing an effective and consistent IT strategy – and executing automation and IT projects to achieve optimal utilisation of equipment – requires both IT know-how and a profound understanding of pharma and biotech manufacturing.
Automation and IT systems are essential to make sure modern pharmaceutical products are produced efficiently and correctly the first time around. It provides an overview of production data, which is critical for continuous improvement of production and business processes.
Choosing and designing the optimal IT solutions for a manufacturing plant or site considering the complex needs of the pharma industry is not an easy task. It requires in-depth knowledge of the multitude of systems and solutions available, as well as system integration and the interfaces to design for e.g. Process control systems, MES systems and Enterprise systems.
There are a range of regulatory requirements for documentation and qualification that systems have to comply with in pharma and biotech. This is essential both when developing the solution and in on-going operations."
