From Formulation to Patient: How to Prevent Unforeseen Bottlenecks in Your Clinical Supply Chain

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Tuesday, April 21, 2020

From theory to practice, implementing and executing, even the best supply chain strategy, often times leads to a retrospective of “what could we do better next time?” Join us to learn and discuss how the new era of system supported clinical supply chain data analytics can help move from local, incremental improvements to a global investing strategy and bring your life changing and saving therapies to both patients and the market faster.

Making improvements to your global clinical supply chain process takes time and money, making it all the more crucial to identify the actions that will make the best use of your resources. Having an end-to-end view of your clinical supply chain is fundamental to understanding not only how to invest but when and why. Addressing the most obvious bottlenecks does not necessarily bring the most value to the entire process. Simulating real-life investment scenarios, using clinical supply chain optimization software, will allow you to assess their return on investment at the sponsor level.

For example, did you know simulating your drug substance forecast and manufactured lot sizes across all compounds in your portfolio can take your clinical supply chain to the next level?
