The reality is that, if your company is compliant with DSCSA and FMD and it is serializing at the item level, you are already digitizing the most difficult piece of your supply chain. The serial number creates, for each saleable unit, a digital identity that carries on, together with the physical product, across the end to end supply chain. With the support of some case studies we will discuss the following key topics: • Now that each saleable unit is digitized, how to bring all or other parts of your supply chain up to the task and drive value from smart data • The implications of digitization to production, machinery, packaging lines, shipping operations and the evolution of automation in a digitized supply chain • The role of blockchain. Co-presenting with IBM the IBM PHUN (Pharmaceutical Utility Network) initiative • Actionable steps and best practices that some companies are taking in the industry to prepare to embrace digitization

Objective

  1. Objective 1. With the aid of a case study we want to discuss how serialization can drive digitization within the manufacturing plant. In particular, we will explore how smart data can be generated by digitizing your plant and how it can be used to improve your manufacturing and packaging process. We will show how it is possible to create digital entities for your equipment and how to make your equipment interact with process and people. 2. We will discuss specifically IBM’s PHUN industry initiative around blockchain for the pharmaceutical industry. You will learn what blockchains are and how they function. We will discuss real life examples of how blockchains are used in pharma and explain the role of some industry initiatives in implementing blockchains. You will learn how you can better define your company’s blockchain adoption strategy. 3. Learn the best practices of supply chain digitization. There are clear steps that should be considered in order to successfully proceed towards the implementation of digitization. We will discuss how a smart data-drive strategy can be put in place to support full digitization of your supply chain and to get the benefits of new digitized processes and business models.
