It starts with a proof of concept. The hardest part of any journey is getting started, and for pharma companies looking to create a manufacturing data hub, part of their roadmap begins with building a proof-of-concept (POC). These POCs measure success in two ways: whether the POC solved the business problem, and if the POC created a digital asset out of the manufacturing data.
However, the POC is only the beginning. Pharma companies can unlock a multitude of capabilities from their manufacturing data hubs.
One of the “quick wins” that pharma manufacturers will see is saving time on generating management and operational reports. Data scientists also will spend less time finding, integrating, and analyzing data. As the manufacturing data hub gains traction, pharma manufacturers will reduce their data engineering efforts and be able to focus more on process science. They also will have complete end-to-end visibility for batch histories and be able to run more accurate forecasting models.
