There's intense pressure to reduce costs and improve efficiencies in the fiercely competitive life sciences industry. Pharmaceutical companies and medical equipment manufacturers operate in a complex business environment. You're often manufacturing for diverse worldwide markets that require significant brand variations. Aligning product portfolios and inventory requirements can be difficult. Product demand can easily range from high-dollar SKUs with low-volume forecasts to low-dollar products with high volumes, streamlining new product introductions and quickly adapting to swings in demand caused by successful rollouts. Profitability involves accurate planning and efficient supply chain management
. With production spread across global locations, production plans must reconcile global manufacturing constraints and stringent quality control. Strict lot control is essential for managing and tracking critical expiration dates. And regulatory compliance can be tedious. Environmental and safety agencies have regulations that vary from country to country.
Logility Voyager Solutions™ can provide the real-time visibility you need to effectively manage your global life sciences supply chain. Through effective sales and operations planning (S&OP), you can efficiently develop worldwide operational plans to lower costs while improving margins.
