The only event for reliability engineering, maintenance, asset management and technical operations in GMP-regulated pharma & biotech!
Pharma TechOps 2019 has shown the various facets of making TechOps work in pharma and biotech – high-level speakers from major pharmaceutical companies gave their take on digital asset management, new technologies such as VR and AR, pathways towards maintenance excellence and standardized engineering. One main take aways stuck with the audience in particular: People are key! Be it for implementing a reliability culture or introducing a new set of digital tools – operators, engineers and managers must come together to move from reactive maintenance to proactive reliability, and it is a long-term effort. At the Pharma TechOps 2020, we will be back to showcase what the road to next level technical operations & reliability can look like. You will see how TechOps can enable maintenance excellence and drive operational performance in the IoT age. Join us to discuss best in class maintenance, reliability culture and technical operations in the regulated industries!
