Journey from Paper to Digital Records in Life Sciences Manufacturing

This presentation will take the audience on a journey from the use of paper records in Life Sciences manufacturing to the use of software systems to capture and review records electronically. I will demonstrate how we defined requirements, built, tested and implement the system while managing the business change associated with the adoption of the system into the manufacturing process. We will discuss how to define, estimate and track the benefits of the transformation to digital in Life Sciences. This presentation is based on a real life case.We will walk through the tools used and techniques applied to ensure that the system was adopted seamlessly into the manufacturing process with zero down time. We will also discuss the business, quality and compliance benefits in removing paper from the manufacturing process in Life Sciences.

What can the audience expect to learn?

In addition to delivering a system to a manufacturing site, the business change associated with the removal of paper from the process touches all parts of the organization. The changes to the day to day business are often neglected with the focus mainly being on the technology being applied. Managing these changes is key to the success of digital transformation within a business.The audience will learn how to engage with the various groups in the business to support them on the digital transformation journey and ensure the system is adopted successfully and benefits are realized.
