Optimize your Supply Chain with End-to-End Visibility

Life Sciences, Pharma Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Tuesday, July 07, 2020

Companies struggle to achieve end-to-end visibility in their fragmented supply chains, the results of which include process and order management inefficiencies, unplanned down time, product shortages or excessive inventories, high quantities of scrap, temperature control challenges, lack of shipping transparency and difficult lot genealogy and batch tracking etc. All of these challenges increase risk to the company’s ability to comply with regulatory mandates and standards, their brand integrity—and revenue. In this webinar, presenters will discuss how companies are optimizing their supply chain and leveraging new technologies to increase efficiency.

A company’s ability to implement and utilize these new technologies requires adoption of an agile, sustainable data platform. In this session, attendees will hear from industry experts on how businesses are leveraging a complete 360 view of all data, traceability, data governance and advanced security to make informed decisions, reduce costs, as well as maintain efficient control over products from the factory floor to the end consumer.

Topics covered in the discussion include:

Recognizing and avoiding pitfalls

  • Ensuring the robustness of your supply chain
  • Importance of redundancies

Keeping the supply chain running

  • Maintaining your target capacities – materials, staffing, transportation

AI’s ability to help with the variations in the environment

  • Simulation of scenarios to optimize running your supply chain
