Europe’s dedicated pharma packaging event, Pharmapack, served as the perfect platform for us to kick off 2018. Based in Paris, it was the ideal opportunity to meet with our partners, suppliers and customers and to network during the conferences.

 

The Technologies of the Future, for a Better Supply Chain

Internet of things, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, these are just some of the topics that came up on more than one occasion during the Pharmapack conference and symposium on serialization, in which Adents participated with a presentation on serialization data management.

More than just buzzwords, these words have been woven into discussions ‘beyond compliance’ around pharmaceutical serialization. As more and more supply chain and pharmaceutical professionals realize the potential of serialization data which, if analyzed wisely, can help optimize supply chain processes and even build personalized connections with patients.  These new technologies will be key for exploiting this potential.

Pharmapack was an excellent opportunity for Adents to showcase the Microsoft HoloLens and demonstrate how augmented reality, in combination with Adents Prodigi, will be able to facilitate supply chain processes. Decommissioning or recommissioning, tracing products, uncovering the parent-child relationships of products on a pallet without needing to disassemble the whole pallet or needing to go back to the work station after scanning the serial number or SSCC of said pallet – the possibilities are limitless. The HoloLens & Prodigi combination made an impact and visitors were quite excited when they were able to try out the product.

Also on display in our booth, attendees were able to test the world’s first Cloud serialization demo platform   including all major functionalities such as building and adding manufacturing facilities, connecting multiple trading partners, adding or managing regulations and target markets.

 

Don’t Underestimate the Impact of a Serialization Project

One thing that solution providers, experts and customers (MAHs and CMOs alike) agreed on was that, given the often underestimated scale of a serialization project, a lot of resources will need to be brought on board.  As one speaker pointed out, serialization might be the ‘most underestimated project of the century’ and indeed, it became evident especially during the case studies presented, many still underestimate the impact serialization has on a business. From the length of time that will need to be invested, to the people that need to be involved, and all the little steps and details that will need to be taken care of, serialization is a huge undertaking. It is therefore crucial to, from the beginning,  get all parties around the table to make sure all needs are analyzed and everyone concerned is informed in due course of what’s at stake. Serialization cannot be a ‘one man show’.
