Organizations that operate over multiple plant locations have the significant pressure to reduce overall costs, launch products on-time, and ramp time to peak sales. Because different functional areas strive for ways to improve efficiencies (i.e. production planning requires real-time decision support, while QA/QC needs higher visibility to the quality results), the new need is for harmonizing work practices among disparate sites. This includes enhancing Corrective Action Preventive Action (CAPA) processes to fully track requests and optimize customer satisfaction.
Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) represent a software solutions approach to satisfy these requirements while integrating quality into the manufacturing supply chain. A successful LIMS project is one that is able to deliver enterprise software on-time, within budget, and provides a tangible return on investment.
Register today and watch a 40-minute webinar featuring Donald Thomas, Director of Technical Service and Quality Programs, CF Industries, and Simon Jacobson, Research Director, Gartner, Inc., to explore what is involved in deploying a LIMS as an integral component for manufacturing operations excellence.
Mr. Thomas will unveil CF Industries’ experiences of its recent multi-site LIMS deployment project and share his insights on the requirements for a successful LIMS implementation. Mr. Jacobson will share Gartner’s research analyses and insights on the role of LIMS in the manufacturing supply chain, allowing organizations to connect critical operational data with business planning processes.
