Serialization is a reality – now what?

Different companies, large and small, are at varying stages of actual readiness for meeting the roll-out of regulatory requirements for serialization around the world.  Experts agree serialization has a big impact on all aspects of the supply chain.  Given the degree of complexity involved, it demands an understanding from the shop floor through enterprise-wide systems to mitigate risks, reduce and address defects, and ensure quality control. Serialization also has the ability to capture key supply chain data and information that can be used to maximize your investments and revolutionize the way you do business.

Key issues include:

  • Coordination with suppliers, CMOs, and other stakeholders
  • Shop-floor tactics to prevent and address defects, and understand and define new types of defects and their critical implications
  • Communication across the company and product life cycle to ensure effective data management and use for continuous supply chain improvement.
