Description

Presented at the 2017 ISPE (International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering) Annual Meeting & Expo

Driving Innovation to Advance Patient Therapies


"Innovative Techniques to Improve Supply Chain Flexibility and Responsiveness"

by Jim Curry, OpStat Group and Dr. Niranjan Kulkarni, CRB

 10:45am to 12:15pm 

This session will focus on the business excellence tools and techniques presented in the ISPE's Operations Management Good Practice Guide which can be used to design, manage, and improve a multi-product end-to-end supply chain or individual manufacturing operation. The session will demonstrate how the techniques can be employed using real world examples and case studies of multi-product supply chains.

Some topics covered will include:

• Statistical segmentation used to analyze demand and supply most effectively to maximize customer service, optimize inventory, and balance the batch requirements of production with lean pull techniques

• Benefits of postponement (delay) of final product differentiation in a supply chain strategy

• Allocating demand across manufacturing sites based on site capacity

• Value visualization across supply chain to design strategies to minimize supply chain disruptions

• Use of simulation to test how a change in an operation will perform, before implementing it in the live system, e.g., what-if changes to safety stocks, changes in manufacturing frequency, lean pull replenishment, delay of country specific labeling
