Bethesda, Md. – The Parenteral Drug Association’s (PDA) Manufacturing Science and Operations ProgramSM (MSOP) Manufacturing Intelligence Task Force will present an update on its activities on Tuesday June 26 at 15:20 CET during the PDA Europe 3rd Annual Meeting at the Berlin Marriott. Aaron Goerke, Roche, who is the volunteer co-chair of the committee and the chair of MSOP, will present.

PDA and MSOP formed the Manufacturing Intelligence Task Force in late 2017 to develop strategies to assist the industry with the use of Big Data to improve bio/pharmaceutical manufacturing and supply chain management. In less than 9 months the cross-industry Task Force facilitated an Ideation session, hosted a Manufacturing Intelligence Workshop in Orlando, Florida in March, and outlined a Strategic path to assist the industry during the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0.

“The massive amounts of data generated as part of Industry 4.0 is often seen as disruptive in and of its self,” Goerke says. “But we believe the disruption is the way the data is processed, made available, and ultimately used to drive outcomes.”

Task force participants are discussing the data structure, data process and data science corresponding to insights gained to meet many of the challenges surrounding global manufacturing in a regulated bio/pharmaceutical industry.

Come hear about this journey and acquire an understanding of how the team is developing Digital Strategies to drive Manufacturing and Supply chain reliability at the PDA Europe 3rd Annual Meeting in Berlin!
