Factory of the Future – How to Implement Industry 4.0 in the Life Sciences Industry

The Life Sciences manufacturing landscape is becoming significantly impacted by personalized medicine and biotech trends. Complexity is increasing and business models are changing.

There is now, more than ever, a need for real-time data in order to get better visibility on manufacturing operations and to support decision making as well as the need for appropriate technology to support new production processes.

Single-use technology, analytics, MES, mobility and cyber security are all key elements of the “Factory of the Future” and requires new technologies – both in automation and IT – from the shop floor to the business level and across the supply chain.

This event provides you the opportunity to learn, discuss and share experiences with technology advisors, industry leaders and peers on current challenges and opportunities that Life Sciences manufacturers are facing.
