Until recently, the pharmaceuticals industry has moved cautiously in its efforts to reap the benefits of digitization. That’s changing. Efforts to build a digital supply chain ecosystem are leading to improvements at every stage of the operations value chain: plan, source, make, and deliver. Among the benefits: better planning accuracy, greater manufacturing efficiency and productivity, lower inventory levels, and higher service levels. While issues such as cybersecurity and initial cost remain concerns, few large pharmaceutical companies can afford to lose out on this opportunity to gain real competitive advantage.
