Pharmaceutical & Chemicals

The challenges of the pharmaceutical and verticals industries are many depending on whether you are a manufacturer, distributor or retailer. The pharmaceutical industry is also an extremely regulated industry. Triad helps you in implementing the right mix.
As a Pharma/Chemical Distributor you have the same requirements as other distributors, but you have a heavy emphasis on Lot Traceability in order to report to various regulatory agencies and Expiry Date management. Country of Origin is important to you as well, especially if you are importing products. All the products distributed have a shelf life, so you have especially critical timelines as your inventory can become worthless in a very short time.So how do you ensure the stock pattern you carry is optimal – allowing you to avoid stock outs and at the same time ensuring effective use of your working capital.The pharmaceutical industry is faced with an extreme version of many of the standard challenges facing process manufacturers. Typically, the pharmaceutical manufacturing process—whether it be based on traditional chemistry-based or on new biotech processes—is characterized by a high number of process steps and much longer cycle times than exist in other industries. Add a high rate of manufacturing process innovation, and you have a significantly more complex planning and scheduling environment.Production/Distribution must all reduce operational costs and improve customer service and order fulfillment performance.
