Products Featured in this track include: Pipeline Pilot and the Scientific Collections, Discovery Studio, Material Studio, Insight, Draw, Direct, Assay and Assay Sample, Registration, QSAR Workbench

Manufacturing Process Design, Performance, and Improvement

The process development, manufacturing, and quality functions in pharmaceutical and biotech companies generate an abundance of data that needs to be readily available in a user-friendly, properly organized (contextualized) form to provide process knowledge that supports operations. As organizations generate more data through implementation of QbD (Quality by Design), PAT (Process Analytical Technology), PR (Process Robustness), and CPV (Continued Process Verification) initiatives along with new manufacturing and measurement technologies, they need better ways to access and use their data since traditional manual methods are error-prone, waste valuable time, and can incur large opportunity costs. This track highlights presentations by BIOVIA Discoverant customers and technical experts covering solutions for designing and implementing robust processes, monitoring their performance, as well as process and troubleshooting and introducing improvements.

Products Featured in this track include: Discoverant

Materials Modeling and Simulation

BIOVIA Materials modeling and simulation software is successfully deployed across many diverse industry sectors and provides insights and property predictions for broad classes of materials. This can guide the prioritization of wet lab experiments and lead to more informed decisions about the future direction of research projects. Increasingly complex predictive models, including those covering multiple scales are now possible. This track is focused on providing recent examples from customers and technical experts from a variety of areas including optimization of chemical reactions, metal alloy property prediction and properties of polymers. We will discuss how automation is key to providing accurate, repeatable predictions and for enabling wider adoption of virtual materials models.

Products Featured in this track include: Materials Studio, Pipeline Pilot.

Quality Management

BIOVIA QUMAS provides a connected and comprehensive regulatory, quality and compliance solution to manage regulatory and quality requirements across the enterprise. Major topics discussed will include Electronic Document Management and Quality Management including CAPAs, Deviations, Change Control, Complaints and Audits as well as Regulatory Submission Management. A special focus will be the integration with other BIOVIA and third party solutions. The track will include product overview and update presentations, real life client case studies and sessions highlighting recommended best industry practices.

Products Featured in this track include: BIOVIA QUMAS EDMS (formerly QUMAS DocCompliance), BIOVIA QUMAS EQMS (formerly QUMAS ProcessCompliance), associated solutions and BIOVIA QUMAS Cloud
