CRB Tech Tank – Facility Integration
Flexible Manufacturing – Adapt or Die!
Christa Myers and Allan Bream
April 17, 1:30 PM – 2:15 PM

Your business has to be flexible to survive and thrive. A flexible facility tailored to the business needs of your company will save you money. A flexible facility that is not designed for the right market demand, product yields, product platform and drug delivery methods will not only be inflexible, but it will cost you precious time and money. A well-thought-out, end-to-end approach and execution will allow a flexible facility to be designed cost effectively and constructed on time while safely providing revenue and growth for the business. Bream and Myers will discuss the details that will save you money, time and effort. They will identify the key decisions needed to design the right flexible facility for your purposes. Join us for an interactive session that will tackle industry drivers that will give you and your facility an advantage on delivering a truly flexible facility for the production of your drug product.

Solving demand allocation problem with modeling and simulations
Niranjan Kulkarni, PhD
April 17, 3:30 PM – 4:15 PM

For a multi-site organization, allocating demands can be a challenging problem. Computer simulations, in conjunction with mathematical modeling, can be used to address this problem. Simply shifting loads from one facility to another without understanding site capacity and capability can hurt the overall network productivity. In this presentation we will discuss a case study on how demands can be allocated to different sites based on the sites’ capabilities.
