Supply Chain Wizard to host digital age pharma summit


This event aims to move beyond serialisation compliance, digitalisation of production lines and supply chains, to enhance efficiency and productivity

Supply Chain Wizard – serialisation and traceability consultant – is hosting a Digital Age Pharma CMO Summit on 25 October, 2018 at the Princeton Marriott at Forrestal in Princeton, NJ.

The event will bring together manufacturers and brand owners, CMOs, CPOs, 3PLs, wholesalers and solution providers to participate in educational and interactive activities centered on finalising plans for serialisation compliance and from there achieving significant value beyond compliance.

With just a few months left to meet the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) November 2018 serialisation deadline, the event will focus largely on beyond-compliance strategies utilising the troves of data and industry-wide data networks built by serialisation solutions to realise business, manufacturing and supply chain improvements.

Attendees will be encouraged to explore benefits afforded by digitalisation, and gain exposure to the solutions and techniques involved in transforming traditional production plants into digital factories.

For example, Supply Chain Wizard will demonstrate the improvements to overall equipment effectiveness possible through systems like its OEE Tracker. The tremendous potential of other emerging technologies will be examined as well, including the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and blockchain. The value of networking at all levels is emphasised and encouraged.

“Bringing a broad spectrum of supply chain partners together to share their progress toward serialization and digitalization helps stakeholders appreciate the tremendous opportunities available,” said Evren Ozkaya, CEO of Supply Chain Wizard.

“Stakeholders are afforded the opportunity to see how new solutions and technologies can strengthen operations, improve efficiency and productivity, and ultimately benefit patients by ensuring a safer and more expedient supply of pharmaceutical products.”

The Digital Age Pharma CMO Summit is supported by pharma manufacturers Fresenius Kabi, Medis, Mylan, Nordic and Teva – who are inviting their CMOs to the event – and sponsored by leading solution providers such as Adents, Systech and Wipotec-OCS. Additional sponsorship opportunities are available.
