60 Pharmaceutical Technology TRENDS IN MANUFACTURING 2022 eBOOK P h a r mTe c h . c o m Operations P rior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the bio/pharma manufactur- ing industry had been relatively slow to embrace the ongoing digital revolution. But the pandemic forced the life sciences industry and drug developers to rethink their hesitation to- ward digitization to quickly produce and distribute new vaccines under unprecedented conditions. Now, technology is being used as a solution to improve efficiency and sustainability in life sciences manufacturing. Those who have led the way are said to be creating the "lighthouse effect." Just as actual lighthouses help sailors navigate dangerous waters, lighthouse companies serve as guiding lights for charting the course of an entire industry. For the life sciences manufacturing industry, becoming one of these luminaries relies on a mix of advanced technical capabilities and coming up with innovative applications for the technology. In the age of Big Data, artificial intelligence (AI) and digitization will play lead roles in achieving lighthouse effects. Lighthouse manufacturing techniques utilize technology and automa- tion to streamline production. Bio/pharmaceutical manufacturers can employ systems that optimize the allocation of resources to boost output, track productivity, and improve sustainability by using energy-efficient processes. But what does this mean from a facilities standpoint? Let's talk about three key areas where lighthouse effects are enacting great change in the life sciences manufacturing industry. More efficient buildings and products AI is increasingly being used by lighthouse corporations to find and eliminate inefficiencies in building operations. For example, smart The Lighthouse Effect: Using Technology to Improve Life Sciences Manufacturing Gul Dusi Lighthouse manufacturing techniques utilize technology and automation to streamline production.
