The Life Science industry has always been steps ahead when it comes to data collection and analysis. It’s possible to argue it has been embracing ‘Industry 4.0’ methodology before the term existed. However, these companies have also been aware of the pit falls of ‘big data’ for over 40 years.
Data collection and visualisation to improve the performance of the manufacturing supply chain has been a goal for the Life Science manufacturing industry for a very long time. However, in GMP manufacturing, it’s not about being new – it’s about using proven solutions and approaches to improve quality, reliability and reducing waste.
The pharma industry has been collecting data in large historian systems for years. They currently have a lot of data coming from a lot of sources. Right now, almost every device in a GMP manufacturing facility collects data and the industry continues to complete projects to physically connect all these devices and systems.
Here at Zenith we help Life Science companies cut through the Pharma 4.0 paradigm and get the most out of the data they collect to make real tangible business improvements.
