Free webinar: MES for the future and achieving Pharma 4.0

On 25 January, Lonza Bioscience Informatics and NNIT will host a free 60-minute webinar to discuss the key requirements of next-generation manufacturing execution systems (MES) and how small and medium-sized companies can overcome critical implementation challenges for accelerated pharma digitalisation. Attendees will also have the chance to engage with the expert presenters in a live Q&A session following the webinar.

As digital transformation of pharmaceutical manufacturing becomes critical for companies to ensure compliance and remain competitive, the requirement for a more agile and accelerated approach to implementation of MES is becoming clear. However, MES implementation projects have traditionally been viewed as complex, time- and resource-intensive, and inaccessible to smaller organisations. In the case of cell and gene therapy (CGT) manufacturing, available systems often need extensive customisation to accommodate inherent workflow complexities, further complicating deployment.

Lonza has extensive first-hand experience of the challenges facing organisations that have their sights on achieving Pharma 4.0. NNIT meanwhile has more than 15 years of experience in digital transformation for the pharmaceutical manufacturing and supply chain space, developing the renowned NNIT Accelerated Implementation Methodology for expedited MES deployment. In March 2021, the two companies partnered in a bid to overcome the time-consuming and costly nature of MES implementation across the industry.

The webinar ‘MES for the Future’ will see Robert Lutskus, Director of Commercial Operations at Lonza Bioscience Informatics, and Thomas Halfmann, Global Head of Production & Laboratory at NNIT, delve into the following:

  • Critical industry MES accessibility challenges for small-to-midsized companies and new modalities such as cell therapy.
  • How to accelerate MES implementation to help companies more rapidly achieve their digitalisation vision.
  • The different approaches needed to support the effective digitalisation of quality and manufacturing processes.
  • NNIT’s Accelerated Implementation Methodology.
  • The key requirements for a next-generation MES.

Session 1 of the webinar (Europe and APAC) will be held on 25 January at 7 pm AEDT. For more information and to register, click here.
