“The ISPE Pharma 4.0 SIG team is proud to receive this award. This article is a great collaborative work, with contributions from SIG members; it reflects the start of a practical road map for applying digitalization and Industry 4.0 in the pharmaceutical industry,” said the team.
“We look forward to developing the "holistic control strategy" concept, based on ICH standards, to bring digital maturity and data integrity by design into the pharmaceutical value network and enable flexible pharmaceutical manufacturing.”
The 2017 Winner was announced in the Editor's Voice article printed in the March/April 2018 issue of Pharmaceutical Engineering.
The article is the first in the award’s history in which the judges’ decision was unanimous. This speaks to the strategic thinking showcased in the article: equal parts innovation, pragmatism, and measurable goals.
