2021 ISPE Student & Recent Graduate International Hackathon Teams 1 & 2

2021 ISPE Student & Recent Graduate International Hackathon

On February 8, 2021, the ISPE Emerging Leaders Committee launched ISPE’s first virtual International Hackathon. 51 ISPE Student and Recent Graduates participated in the event; they were split into six teams and 14 ISPE Emerging Leaders and Industry Professionals served as dedicated coaches to the teams. Bayer generously provided the problem statement and challenge. On February 26 at 12:00 midnight PT, each team provided a recorded video of the solution the team had identified. Two of these videos were selected by a team of eight Judges; these two teams will present additional information to the Judges via a virtual meeting on Friday, March 5. An Emerging Leaders Task Team spent a few months preparing for this Hackathon – this dedicated group of volunteers did a fantastic job creating a highly educational, challenging, exciting, and collaborative program.

Teams 1 and 2 Overview

Team 1

Lemniscate – decided the right solution is to store data that is integrated through every step of production. Manual, printed, digital; the team’s goal is to digitize and store all of these in the company database. A third-party vendor provides cost savings and increased quality; it’s a platform for the future that can be integrated with MES to drive Pharma 4.0 solutions!

Dinnovation has enabled the implementation of a masterbatch record that encompasses different elements from various functions within the organization. An EBR System with technological enhancements in raw materials, dispensing, and in-process quality controls, it includes holistic control strategies and lifecycle management. Dinnovation has identified that the system’s strengths result in compliance, reduction in errors, simultaneous generation of documents, and the streamlined ability to trace actions.
