American Biomanufacturing Summit 2016

On May 10th, BPTC’s Senior Consultant, Patti Seymour, will be part of a panel discussion entitled: Examining Planning and Modeling Techniques to Achieve Effective Capacity Management in Your Biomanufacturing Network. The panel will focus on:

  • Discussing strategic capacity issues when building a global network
  • Planning for variability in market demand for both mature and a growing products
  • Optimizing internal and external networks to increase speed to market
  • Developing flexible models to take the guesswork out of capacity planning

The other panelists are:

Lance Minor, VP, Global Biologics Operations Network Strategy and Performance, MedImmune

Stephen Muldoon, VP Manufacturing and Engineering Services, AbbVie

Ray Kaczmarek, VP, Commercial Manufacturing and Supply Operations, Pacira Pharmaceuticals

Mike Storan, Vice President, IDA Ireland – Moderator 

On May 11th, Patti will be giving a Breakfast Briefing entitled: Global Biomanufacturing Trends, Capacity, and Technology Drivers. As the number of commercial products and pipeline candidates grows, a crucial issue facing the industry is the current and future state of biomanufacturing capacity, the availability of that capacity, and the technologies impacting upstream and downstream bioprocessing. Patti will present BPTC’s capacity model and its implications for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies and contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) for aligning their strategies to not only address capacity but to address greater complexity in supplier risk, the competitive forces of innovator biologics and biosimilars, and the adoption of advanced biomanufacturing technologies.
