In an Australasian BioTechnology article, Facilities for a Strong Future, Emerson’s Michalle Adkins and Makarand Mujumdar share how pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers can improve local capacity to meet the needs of the regions in which they operate.
There are four core pillars we look to address in order to support pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers in achieving line and facility efficiency goals.
Reliability of assets used in the manufacturing process is paramount for safe, efficient and effective operations. Unplanned asset failures, improper asset performance, poor maintenance planning, and untimely follow-through can cause shutdowns, under-utilized production equipment, deviations, or material/product losses.
For manufacturers in the Life Sciences industry, production challenges often occur in these four areas—production readiness, equipment reliability, personnel effectiveness and facility/line efficiency. In this post, I’ll focus on equipment reliability, and specifically, unplanned downtime.
In a presentation at the ACHEMA Pulse virtual conference this year, Emerson’s Alan Johnston shared how fast rollout of COVID vaccine manufacturing has changed the mindset of how quickly a new therapy can move from development to commercial manufacturing and ultimately to the consumer.
Accelerating vaccine development requires unprecedented flexibility in managing data. With increasing integration between product lifecycle management systems and software—like distributed control systems (DCS) and manufacturing execution systems (MES)—data, recipes, and processes can be digitally altered, shared, and used to scale across the lifecycle.
Technology has continued to advance and provide ways to assist pharmaceutical & biopharmaceutical manufacturers with production readiness. Improper set up and qualification of automation and information management production applications cause start-up and product changeover delays, as well as slow performance during production runs.
In a Pharmaceutical Processing World article, Emerson’s Ben Arriola and Zach Blum discuss technologies advancing vaccine development. It’s safe to say that there has never been a pharmaceutical effort so huge, fast, and successful as developing multiple vaccines for...
Personalized medicine manufacturers are rapidly changing their manufacturing platforms to provide a new scale of production. In the Emerson Exchange Virtual Series, life sciences experts held an open Q&A on the trajectory of cell and gene therapies, and how a...
A common theme across the Emerson Exchange Virtual Series has been the way software and digital technologies have helped us all deal with an unexpected and unprecedented pandemic. Wherever there is adversity, there are also innovators who step up to the challenge of...
In an Intech article, Three strategies help life sciences companies implement more successful review by exception, Emerson’s Emilee Cook shares ways for these manufacturers to improve this workflow.
Imagine driving the wrong direction for hundreds of miles after a wrong turn, simply because you didn’t notice missing the exit. Overlooked deviations can cause a lot of frustration, whether during a drive or while executing a batch of pharmaceuticals. Detecting and...
