Laboratory Management Webinars

Today’s laboratory manager is faced with taming growing streams of disparate data coming from a variety of different sources. As many organizations look to streamline costs to drive long term efficiency, traditional paper-based and disparate, disconnected software solutions are no longer sustainable.

To keep pace, laboratories will need to adopt a comprehensive digital solution to connect the various sources of data across externalizing organizations. Scientists will be able to rapidly reference and leverage existing knowledge resources, optimize use of materials, efficiently track samples, and effortlessly design and communicate validated experimental protocols. Unified laboratory solutions can lower costs, foster collaboration and innovation, and speed time to market.

Unified Laboratory Management solutions offered by BIOVIA support a seamless data stream between people, places, inventory, and instruments with a comprehensive suite of laboratory management tools backed by a scientifically aware platform.

Webinars will continue to be added to this series, please check back often.

Title and Speaker

What R&D Can Learn from Crime Analysis: A Question-Based Approach to Product Development
Presented by:
Dr. Barbara Holtz, PhD., Senior Business Consultant, BIOVIA Dassault Systèmess
Ian Kerman, BIOVIA Global Portfolio Technical Specialist, BIOVIA Dassault Systèmes

Product Development across many industries faces increasing pressures around speed, complexity and sustainability. R&D departments have to navigate through a wealth of scientific, technical and regulatory information.

Policing faces similar problems: organized crime analysis usually involves a large amount of information in a highly complex network of actors. Police forces in the UK use an intelligent approach to analysis centered around a set of questions which direct data gathering and analysis, keeping investigations focused towards the desirable outcome.

During this webinar we will demonstrate a solution, which employs such a concept of a question-based approach as well as providing guidance through a set of questions to a team of product developers.

Learn how product specifications can be linked to data to:

  • Allow project managers to quickly understand the status of ongoing projects
  • Drive the re-use of more data and in-silico methods
  • Aid continuous improvement of project management in R&D by allowing a retrospective analysis of projects using a sequence of questions against success and cost of projects.

Scale and Leverage your CPV Initiatives Beyond Compliance
Kate Lusczakoski, Director of Value Engineering
Aaron Spence, Manager of Analytic Consulting

Continued Process Verification (CPV) is the monitoring of processes subsequent to validation in a continued manner throughout the lifetime of the product to ensure the process remains in control and meets the requirements set for the product. As many organizations know from experience, developing a scalable CPV monitoring program that enables sponsor and CMOs to collaboratively optimize their supply chain can be nearly impossible without the right tools.

Join us to learn about successful CPV monitoring components and how to minimize your implementation effort and obtain critical process improvement information. We will discuss designing for scalability to achieve a higher level of CPV monitoring maturity, lessons learned from BIOVIA customers and provide resources to move your CPV initiative forward. Attendees will also be provided with the knowledge and resources to evaluate their company’s level of CPV maturity.

Next Generation Informatics Needs for Pharma

Multiple speakers:
Paul McKenzie, Ph.D. Vice President, Manufacturing and Technical Operations (MTO) Janssen Supply Chain (JSC)
Ken Rapp Managing Director and Sr. Vice President, ADQM BIOVIA

Labs and manufacturing plants strive for operational excellence to reduce development and manufacturing costs, reduce cycle times and at the same time reduce compliance risks. Traditionally, the informatics environment has been a hybrid of paper and electronic systems—paper notebooks, paper binders and log books—combined with ERP, LIMS, CDS and MES systems. More recently this slew of acronyms has been complimented with the Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN). The result is a mixture of informatics products from multiple vendors supporting parts of a process.

In this webinar, industry experts will explore the role of these systems in the new product and process development stage and downstream technology transfer to cGMP QA/QC commercial operations. We’ll share a new way of approaching product/process and commercial development with a focus on ISA S88 and S95 standards and innovative data management through a “recipe-based” innovative workflow process. This webinar will outline these processes and how informatics systems are converging to support R&D process efficiencies, QbD requirements and improved operational excellence and compliance risks for global commercial plant environments.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • How to reduce cycle times and improve positive outcomes in pharma and biotech R&D through effective data capture and management.
  • How to provide an efficient technology transfer process from R&D to Pilot and Plant operations for new product commercialization programs.
  • How to reduce IT/IS tasks/implementation challenges and operational costs through convergence of disparate IT “systems” with an innovation life-cycle platform strategy.
