VCRP™ for Pharma/Biotech

Multi-Tier / Site Visibility, Planning and Management

animalh

Pharma and Biotech brand owners face huge challenges planning and managing their multi-tier in/out bound value chains. Firms find it difficult to achieve real time visibility from key sub-suppliers through in-house or contract manufacturing to logistics down through master distributors or direct distribution to end users. Owners have growing traceability and/or serialization requirements.

Leaders are looking to synchronize demand signals with supply plans / processes across end to end value streams segmented by market channels. They need agile support for constantly evolving business processes with channel / partner specific processes, yet require central control and management. They wish to see consolidated network wide data, yet be able to plan and execute daily down to single sku/site level, but they do not want to replace existing validated systems nor can they demand that partners make costly investments to participate.

Leaders seek a next gen platform to unify their existing enterprise solutions and their partner’s information /process flows into a unified value chain operating platform, synchronized daily.

 

How can you implement these solutions cost effectively?

VCRP delivers a modern, purpose built multi-tier value chain “operating system” with visibility, planning, fulfillment and demand visibility and cost effective multi-party inventory management. View critical data from any participating site or partner, see plans and actuals and drill down to individual transactions as needed. Collaborate with partners to choose the best options. Create or change plans and then synchronize them back for execution in their own or partner’s systems at all the required partners or sites automatically. Daily activity is aggregated up in configurable time buckets for planning and aggregated business plan data is broken down weekly and reconciled to actual activity.

We manage lot controlled and serialized products such as drugs, devices and other items subject to effectivity dates, expiration, traceability, and recall requirements. VCRP supports the emerging compliance requirements for lot and serial traceability compliance.

We offer specific applications to support multi-tier drug manufacturing and distribution needs, VCRP provides agile event response capability, such as recovery from a catastrophic supplier failure, or materials shortage problems, enabling transformative levels of customer satisfaction, without requiring changes to your ERP solution or to your partner’s existing IT investments. Leverage your enterprise systems investments into a value chain solution cost effectively.

Supply Chain 4.0 enabling the Digital Enterprise and Industry 4.0

Supply Chain 4.0 enabling the Digital Enterprise and Industry 4.0

The real value of the “Digital Enterprise” movement & Industry 4.0 can only be realized unless it is encompassed and orchestrated by parallel automation/Digitization of the ‘Supply Chain’ delivery mechanism. “Global supply chain flows must become increasingly digital and integrated, and end-to-end data will be driven in real-time, exponentially increasing upstream information flows and driving integration across the extended value chain”… thus the recent emergence of the “Supply Chain Management 4.0” movement.

Leading 3D printer manufacturing company to deploy next generation supply chain management system to orchestrate supply and demand across their rapidly expanding global supply chain. MALVERN, PA.   Vecco International, provider of an advanced end-to-end cloud-based supply chain management solution, today announced that Formlabs, the industry leader in 3D printing technology, has selected Vecco to manage the company’s global supply chain in support of their rapid international growth. “We are honored that Formlabs has selected Vecco as the foundation of their Digitization Initiative supporting its rapidly expanding complex global supply chain” said Jonathan Kall, Vecco’s CEO.

Is Lack of Real-Time Global Data Threatening Your Ability to Service Your Customers?

So you’ve just learned that there’s good news… and there’s bad news. First, the good news: your sales for a specialty item manufactured in-house are through the roof. In fact, they’re way over forecast. Now, the bad news. You’re short on production orders. And raw materials. And coordinating your global supply chain in a timely manner to meet your customers’ needs feels like an even taller order. This scenario is just one of many that’s all too familiar for manufacturers. So what is the real problem here? And how can you handle the constant change in your supply chains more effectively? In this blog, we’ll discuss how the lack of real-time, end-to-end data can disrupt business operations and what can be done to prevent  the “bad news” scenarios. Too Many Systems, One Major Disconnect First, consider the sheer number of systems that today’s global manufacturers rely upon to run their businesses. Often a result of internal growth or acquisitions, such systems might include everything from multiple ERPs, to CRMs, to S&OPs, to spreadsheets, and so on. The problem, however, is not simply a result of running multiple systems—it’s due to those systems not being interconnected. To make matters worse, those systems are typically not able to “talk” with external systems in their supply chain. This limited visibility, both internally and among partners’ systems, prohibits decision makers from being able to correct problems before they become serious—or conversely, respond to opportunities in the consumer and business-to-business marketplace.  The Missing Pieces Again, what’s missing from the scenario above is real-time, end-to-end visibility of actionable information that allows manufacturers to proactively respond... read more
