A successful life sciences planning solution must offer full end-to-end visibility across the entire supply chain within the company itself, while also involving suppliers, contract manufacturers (CMOs), third-party logistics, and other partners.
Although getting global supply chains to run smoothly is challenging in every industry, it can be even more complicated in life sciences. Getting interconnected production sites worldwide aligned, with the combination of in-house production and contract manufacturing, and the need for dual sourcing strategies, calls for advanced cross-enterprise collaboration both within and far beyond the company walls.
OMP for Life Sciences uses Unison Planning™ to build a digital twin of your entire extended supply chain ecosystem. Its ‘one model, one plan’ logic provides an integrated platform allowing every stakeholder to act and react to real-time information and harmonize planning decisions with all the players involved.
Seamlessly integrating every planning horizon, function, and role means that planning is optimized from production, detailed scheduling, sales & operations, to the strategy. It offers a global and facility-specific perspective on internal and external production, packaging, and distribution, considering all the inherent interdependencies and underlying constraints, such as shelf life and regulatory approvals. Thanks to the integrated platform, every stakeholder in the value chain has access to reliable, objective, and real-time planning data.
Global E2E visibility not only gives decision makers full control over the entire supply chain ecosystem, but also represents the perfect tool to manage and coordinate every aspect. With its integrated logic, OMP for Life Sciences eliminates disconnects between planning horizons, allowing optimization at a global level, and avoiding the risks inherent in making decisions with only partial supply chain visibility.
The system’s real-life integration, in combination with advanced embedded intelligence, puts you in the driver’s seat. Always knowing what’s happening right now allows you to react faster and more accurately. The AI backbone triggers you to make the smartest possible decisions, and propagates its impact through every planning level, making any change instantly visible to everyone involved. As a bonus, the flexibility of the underlying architecture supports an endless array of supply chain types and strategies, from traditional mass pharma to more specialized scenarios such as personalized therapies.
How can Unison Planning™ create additional value for every stakeholder? Here’s how one world leader in pharmaceuticals is making full use of OMP’s signature solution to deliver exactly that, as part of a major transformative business journey.Read case study
