The industry is now experiencing its fourth revolution. Integrating digital technology into production is no longer optional, but rather a matter of survival for the development of the business and the company in question. For companies specialized in biomanufacturing, the digitalization of their activities is already in place. But what exactly is the advantage of digitalized bioproduction?


The industrial sector is embracing the new technology and biologic drug production is no exception. Indeed, most laboratories and industries specialized in this field are currently equipped with cutting-edge technology that connects the entire production process to research and development. Among other things, this makes it possible to speed up the marketing and distribution of drugs. In addition, the digitalization of the production of biological drugs is the best way to ensure the transformation of the company's research and development portfolio. In a nutshell, this digitization enables the expansion of biopharmaceutical production capabilities.


The other advantage of digitalized bioproduction also lies in the acceleration of production. Indeed, advanced technologies allow to control the plant data in order to reach a higher level of productivity. In addition, at the cutting edge of current technology, this method allows for quality assurance and the production process from the laboratory to the manufacturing plant. Most importantly, it allows us to better meet the needs of patients around the world. Digital transformation is also a key element that offers a biomanufacturing company the unprecedented opportunity to leverage data to optimize manufacturing processes and increase efficiencies at the same time. In order to improve agility and subsequently respond to rapidly changing patient needs, this innovative method should also be taken advantage of.


The digital transformation implemented within a biomanufacturing company concerns, among other things, the design of production processes, clinical studies, commercial manufacturing, without forgetting the essential functions. The latter usually refers to quality control, regulatory affairs, etc. By concentrating these core functions, the company can now design processes and manufacture products from start to finish with greater fluidity. In addition, this solution provides development and training opportunities for the site's employees in various handling techniques. As a result, this transformation allows the skills of all the teams involved in the production work to evolve.
