Woburn, MA (PRWEB) October 26, 2011
TraceLink, Inc., developer of the TraceLink Network, the world’s first industry-wide supply collaboration network, today announced that the company’s President and CEO Shabbir Dahod will be speaking about today’s virtual Life Sciences supply network at the 4th Annual BSMA Bio Supply Chain Academy Conference in Foster City CA on Nov. 7-8. Mr. Dahod will examine how pharmaceutical business leaders can ensure supply, capacity and quality while improving core manufacturing KPIs by building an integrated, collaborative business network.
At the conference, Mr. Dahod will be presenting a session titled “Ensuring Supply, Capacity and Quality in the Virtual Pharmaceutical Supply Chain” on Nov. 7th. This presentation will combine real-world examples with recent research on supply network collaboration to explore:
- Factors driving the shift from a vertical business model to a virtual execution model
- Virtual supply network architectures for clinical trial and commercial drug production
- Business issues and operational challenges created as production is outsourced
- Core capabilities needed to ensure visibility, accountability and control of outsourced product and external supply relationships
- Needs of the CMO and CPO in the pharmaceutical contract manufacturing relationship
- Opportunities to drive joint business value in a collaborative supply network
“The industry shift towards a virtual execution model puts great pressure on supply chain, IT and quality leaders to monitor, manage and control a global supply chain made up of tens to thousands of interconnected business relationships and users,” said Dahod. “Addressing key issues such as drug shortages in such a complex supply environment requires a new operating model based on close collaboration with supply and trade partners. I’m honored to be speaking on this important topic at one of the leading events bringing together life science business leaders.”
