The pharmaceutical industry is transforming due to the rapid development of emerging markets, progress in drug research, rise in generics production, the availability of high-potency drugs and innovations in their manufacturing processes. This evolution has laid critical challenges to the pharmaceutical manufacturers in the areas of cost and margin pressures due to patent cliffs, lack of robust discovery pipelines, increasing regulations, quality and safety standards, cost of research and development, and a phenomenal price pressure being exerted by emerging markets on the established ones.
Manufacturers require a reliable and high-end automated inspection technology to be integrated into their production lines to increase output and improve efficiency, as well as inspection accuracy. In recent years, the industry has experienced greater adoption of manufacturing execution system (MES) technology that allows contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) to ensure quality control, deviation management and effective enterprise resource planning (ERP), as well as enabling users to document floor activities for monitoring and reporting purposes.
