In the white paper, Strain examines the limitations of today’s document-based approaches to managing pharmaceutical product knowledge and manufacturing. He envisions a not-so-distant future in which digital design-based Process PLM will bring transformative change to pharmaceutical manufacturing, much as PLM technology has done in the discrete industries. What’s more, Strain explains why a confluence of factors is making this massive paradigm shift an urgent necessity.

“Process PLM connects steps and stakeholders across the product life cycle, providing pharmaceutical manufacturers with a long list of important advantages,” Strain said. “As the challenges facing the industry grow increasingly complex, digital design-based Process PLM will become a critical tool for companies seeking to adapt and compete.”
