Milwaukee-based Rockwell Automation Inc.’s Center for The Connected Enterprise is scheduled to present on smart manufacturing at the International Pharmaceutical Expo (INTERPHEX), a premier pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical development and manufacturing event taking place from April 21-23 in New York City.
Experts will demonstrate how the latest automation and information technology, accelerated by advances in enabling technologies including the Internet of Things, data analytics, remote monitoring and mobility, is improving collaboration and real-time decision making, as well as driving profitability in life sciences manufacturing.
Topics to be covered include:
- Deploying and migrating manufacturing execution systems in validated environments and ‘evergreen’ information software
- Serialization solutions and pending regulation
- Quality and metrics that are changing the landscape of life sciences manufacturing
- Mobilizing pharmaceutical production
- Big data, cloud computing and manufacturing performance
“INTERPHEX attracts producers at the leading edge of their industry and manufacturing in general,” said John Genovesi, vice president and general manager of information software and process at Rockwell Automation. “Most attendees are either participating in or closely following initiatives like the Smart Manufacturing Leadership Coalition, Industrie 4.0 and Smart Factories. But many don’t yet have a clear strategy in place to operationalize these initiatives.
“We are helping life sciences companies leverage manufacturing as a strategic business asset to stay ahead of consumer demand, improve traceability and reduce cycle times. What we are doing with The Connected Enterprise is creating a unified control and information system architecture to harness production intelligence and improve operations across the product life cycle – from formulation to factory.”
