The second of the Emerging Technology sessions focuses on concepts promoting rapidly advancing manufacturing technologies enabling improvement in quality and process robustness, supply chain agility, and reduced costs. The session will address emerging practices for applying and taking advantage of the rapidly accumulating data, and illustrate examples of beneficial uses of that data. Digitization is a key to enabling our industry to capitalize on many of the emerging technologies as they become available. While these few examples are the “tip of the iceberg” of potential operational enhancements, hopefully they will ultimately lead to improved patient outcomes by mining and applying the right useful data. Examples are great ways to help us better understand and recognize what further improvements might be most impactful and what data is pertinent to enabling those advances to be realized.
