In the pharmaceutical and biotech industry, digitization is the key to achieving the efficient and cost-optimized production systems of tomorrow. But these digital solutions need to perfectly fit to each company’s size, targeted processes and strategic orientation. In order for each customer to fully benefit from the implemented solutions, the integration has to be seamless. Körber consulting specialists guide their customers through every step of their journey to the shop floor of tomorrow, from choosing the right software and hardware solutions to implementing and optimizing every individual process in the production system.
The challenges for companies in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries can be extremely varied. While some are concerned with implementing intelligent manufacturing strategies across multiple locations, others are more focused on efficiently mastering an increasingly wide spectrum of variants and materials. For manufacturers in biotech, cell therapy and gene therapy, the goal is to produce even the smallest batches without error and with consistently high quality, while for contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs), the desire is to increase efficiency by introducing new electronic systems that can provide a competitive edge in their future customer orders.
These diverse challenges lead to differing priorities in terms of digitization and Industry 4.0. They are all united by the goal of optimizing production and reducing costs, for example by networking a company’s machines so that the combined data can be evaluated through intelligent algorithms.
