An example of how multivariate statistical process control improves batch quality in biopharma manufacturing

November 22, 2018

For pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical manufacturers it’s common to generate and store large amounts of data originating from a variety of sources. This valuable asset has the potential to deliver critical benefits if the right applications are built around it. Data analytics tools are an important component in making that happen.

A case for using predictive analytics to optimize and control bioprocesses

June 1, 2018

In bioprocessing today, a shift is happening that takes the ability to monitor, optimize and control processes to the next level. Whereas in the past manufacturers aspired to measure data in order to find out why a bioprocess action happened (using descriptive and diagnostic analytics), today we are able to use predictive analytics to determine what will happen in a bioprocess based on specific process data measured in real-time. This migration “up the food chain” to a higher level of data analytics requires automation, ongoing process monitoring and the ability to make adjustments in real-time.

Injection molding no longer a black art: How to increase volume while reducing defects

February 26, 2018

For manufacturing companies, process control is essential— even for those producing low-cost items such as small plastic parts. That’s because even when units are small and inexpensive, the cost of defects becomes exponentially higher when they reach the next manufacturing step at another plant.
