WBF announced the confirmation of industry expert keynote speakers for the 2006 European
conference at the Elewijt Center in Mechelen, Belgium on 13-15 November.
Martin Zeller will deliver a detailed evaluation of batch data analysis
on Tuesday, 14 November, and Lou Pillai and Dennis Brandl will address
information model framework for manufacturing science on Wednesday, 15
Bayer Technology’s Martin Zeller has a worldwide collection of
experience on process modeling and simulation and process control.
“Batch data analysis comprises of three steps. In the first step of data
acquisition all potentially relevant process data has to be collected.
To start analyzing a specific situation, the data relevant for this
situation need to be selected in a second step of data extraction. To
yield information, these data have to be analyzed with process knowledge
in a third step of data evaluation. The concluded information will then
be used to develop process improvements,” says Zeller. His presentation
will illustrate the general approach and results from individual
Pfizer’s Lou Pillai and consultant Dennis Brandl’s comprehensive
business process generates insightful analysis of the new information
model framework proposed to address evolving information needs of
manufacturing businesses. “Innovation in pharmaceutical manufacturing
with faster development, faster new product release, robust process
understanding and vastly improved quality by design is a key component
of the FDA’s 21st century manufacturing initiative. The context on how
this information is created, consumed, refined, and used varies
depending on business processes such as production sourcing, material
sourcing, new product introduction, continuous process improvement,
process optimization, and product investigations,” according to Pillai
Each year, the European conference offers attendees unmatched technical
papers, in-depth presentations, descriptive forums, panels, networking,
and knowledge sharing. WBF is an association of end-users, vendors,
consultants, and academics with a strict, non-commercial agenda.
