Extracting value from unit-level traceability: Rising to Life Sciences’ data challenge – Part I
The breadth and scope of traceability has expanded significantly along with advances in technology, making it a critical application for today’s Life Sciences companies. In addition to the economic justification of implementing unit-level traceability and the liability implications of mislabeling or recalling products, regulatory agencies and standards organizations have introduced requirements, such as FDA’s UDI (Unique Device ID) mandate.
Human-and-robot collaboration: Opportunities in a rapidly evolving market
Seeing collaborative robots in action quickly puts their contributions into perspective and opens manufacturing in the life sciences arena to new possibilities. However, there are hurdles that remain, many of which are related to mindset. In addition to the economic mindset of justifying investment, collaboration with robots also requires a shift in worker mindset. One thing is certain, cobots are rapidly becoming one of the most important tools and teammates in a manufacturer’s arsenal.
