Disruption, innovation, and global connectivity are all reshaping how biomanufacturers deliver today's novel therapies - the virtual twin experience can help you transform your operations.
The Life Sciences industry has changed significantly over the last number of years. With a view to developing new, novel, more effective, quality, precision treatments, industry leaders are exploring new therapeutic areas and approaches, leveraging the latest technology advancements to gain the competitive edge and deliver sustainable scientific innovation.
As pharmaceutical manufacturing lines transition towards small batch production to produce precision medicines, manufacturers need to effect end-to-end manufacturing line optimizations to produce these therapies more sustainably. To do this, manufacturers look to connect systems, people and data — leveraging digitalization, automation, virtualization, modeling and simulation and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and what we call the Virtual Twin. The Virtual Twin, is a digital replica of real-world pharmaceutical processes, products and plants from end-to-end. When leveraged with a platform based approach, it delivers the agility manufacturers need with science-based tools that can be leveraged to develop novel therapies. Explore more about the Virtual Twin for BioManufacturing in the chapters below.

Define, develop, optimize and validate recipes and the associated industrial setup by building the Virtual Twin of the manufacturing environment. Improve production flexibility with “What if Scenarios” to simulate, and analyze multiple production and process engineering scenarios, in a realistic 3D environment, optimizing the production workflow and resource utilization.
Recipe Lifecycle Management allows to author, test and release new recipes faster using lifecycle management capabilities and therefore reduce time to market and ease recipe development in a sustainable manner.
Line Process Engineering allows to define, simulate and validate the behavior of complex multi-physics systems (Piping & Tubing, Air Conditioning and Electrical) and ensure engineering integrity through a system engineering and model-based design approach.
With Line Model Design and Line Simulation & Optimization, you can synchronize all engineering processes & simulate and optimize the dynamic behavior of production scenarios to derive a performance-driven, ergonomic plant layout.
With Line Virtual Commissioning, you can simulate and create a virtual twin of your entire system, which can be tested and validated even before being implemented in the real physical plant, thus, saving you time and money.
Effectively manage and achieve manufacturing operational excellence with the Virtual Twin experience. Unify manufacturing operations with warehouse processes, and experience full continuity between recipe authoring and recipe execution on the shop floor and in QC laboratories to minimize waste. Quickly adapt and scale up the production with fast refitting of processes and layouts to deliver flexibility and improved overall equipment effectiveness.
Lean Operational Management offers the ability to digitalize Lean Practices on the Shop-Floor. By leveraging big touch screens technologies, it enables Lean representatives to broadcast company Lean Practices and ease the animation of Shop-floor meetings between team leaders, its team and other support functions. 3Dlean helps in capturing and retaining institutional knowledge and intellectual property and manufacturing know-how.
Quality Control Lab Execution is a compliant solution to schedule and document workflows and outcomes for raw material, finished product, in process quality control testing.
Material Synchronization tightly unifies manufacturing operations with warehouse processes. It directs people and equipment to perform warehouse activities, such as put-aways and cross-docking materials directly to and from production. Material synchronization synchronizes material flows with manufacturing operations to support Just-in-Time, Lean and other continuous process improvement initiatives.
Pharmaceutical manufacturers can support modular manufacturing using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to produce a variety of products from a single facility with faster changeovers, increased flexibility, and improved overall equipment effectiveness.
