MEETING THE SUPPLY CHAIN CHALLENGE


Recognising the need for change was only the first step for Fleet Laboratories on the notoriously treacherous path of selecting and successfully implementing an integrated manufacturing management system. Most companies, whatever the industry, are facing the challenge of customer’s whose needs and demands are no longer predictable, yet who expect manufacturers to improve their ability to respond.

The Pharmaceutical sector is far from immune to these pressures, and so many pharmaceutical manufacturers, both large and small, have now turned their attention to re-organisation and the deploying of new systems. In particular, over the past few years, the industry has seen unprecedented investments in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. By improving the flow of information and control throughout the organisation, and wider enterprise, these systems can help to drive cost out of the supply chain, reduce lead times and ensure better customer service.

“An integrated management system would also help us to achieve the increasing requirements of the pharmaceutical regulatory agencies to improve data storage, lot traceability and product recall disciplines.”

Formed by the merger of four previously individual beauty firms, PZ Cussons inherited SYSPRO from one these, Sanctuary Spa. They were so impressed by the functionality they rolled SYSPRO out across the other three allowing easy company wide communication.
