For most of a generation now, the pharmaceutical industry has been on a cautious journey from manual, paper-intensive methods toward more automated, electronic ways to make a product.

While adopting IIoT in stages is a common strategy, making sure your company is progressing through the right stages is critical.

Before you can begin to tap the potential of next-generation, big data-driven, intelligent automation, you need to modernize the foundation on which it is built. Failure to do so can mean production delays, compliance issues, and spending more energy worrying about the tools than the problems they should fix.

In this webinar we will discuss:

  • Digitization’s full potential: moving to electronic systems; electronic procedures and new industry standards
  • Modernizing automation: bringing legacy systems up to speed; risks of not modernizing
  • IIoT consideration checklist: journey to the edge and the consequences of edge system failure
  • The path to a digital enterprise: fault tolerance and operational simplicity; predictive, preventive and proactive support; future vision
