Maximize Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Efficiency and Security

Everyone from manufacturers to patients needs to think about the safety and security of pharmaceutical products. As the pharma industry continues to adapt to new challenges and increasing demand for transparency, companies must also equip themselves with the tools to meet expectations while maximizing operational efficiency.

What is supply chain efficiency and security?

A supply chain typically performs five steps:

  • Planning
  • Sourcing (Finding suppliers)
  • Making (Manufacturing)
  • Delivering
  • Returning

Supply chain efficiency is getting the right product to the right person at the right time at the least cost.

As important as efficiency is the security of the supply chain to protect patients and ensure they receive genuine products that have not been compromised.

How to improve supply chain efficiency and security?

  • Increase information sharing and visibility with key stakeholders
  • Monitor data from equipment with OEE software to highlight areas for improvement
  • Implement brand protection and anti-counterfeiting strategies
