Intelligence-based Manufacturing (IbM)

IbM is a strategic partnership with Pfizer’s leadership. The basic premise is that in order to improve pharmaceutical and other manufacturing processes, the supply chain management, plant control software has to work in concert with the data provided by the different process analytical instrumentation working in concert with chemometric software and other components. The strategic partnership includes the software and hardware companies to monitor and optimize the manufacturing processes using data sources, such as near-infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy and hyperspectral imaging. For the different tasks, the appropriate group of companies will be providing the technologies aided by Pfizer’s manufacturing, PAT and systems integration expertise.
