Case Study: Merck Leverages Data and Analytics to Support New Continuous Drug Manufacturing Processes
Challenge: While moving from batch to continuous manufacturing may not be new in many other industries, it is in pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturing.
Pharma, a highly regulated, science-based, and largely batch-oriented industry, is relatively new to continuous manufacturing. Continuous manufacturing can lead to innovative pharma and biotech products and processes and help pharma companies resolve cost, quality inspection, and supply chain challenges. This report discusses how Merck is using OSIsoft and Seeq technologies to support drug development and commercial production using continuous manufacturing.
