Serialization urgency:
Industry has failed to sound the alarm
By Jim Chrzan, VP/Publisher, Healthcare Packaging

The complexity of serialization and its total impact on an organization was the focus of July 11's Pharma Exchange, a free, two-day seminar put together by Mettler Toledo.

(Editor's Note: With a small tabletop area and no sales pitch at the podium, this was a first-class networking event.)

"No doubt the U.S. is behind," said Elliott Abreu of Xyntek, Inc. "But lagging behind has its privileges. We have let the others pay the price to sample approaches and find what works."

What is true now, however, is if you have not started, you are going to miss deadlines for California-or be superseded by some Federal regulations. Either way, starting now with available standards, assessing and planning strategy, pilot testing, rolling out, and validating is a move that will position you for success in the global market.

Remember, California is the catalyst, but creating your own global supply chain serialization program is going to pay off with visibility into your operation like you have never had before.

"IT is the blood and heartbeat of any serialization project," said Abreu. The management of data tracked across an enterprise requires standards, methodologies, project ownership, and management from every discipline.

You have multiple, complex technology platforms-PLCs, vision, sensors, encoding, inspection and verification systems, all feeding information to complex IT layers-at device, line, plant, and enterprise levels.

Serialization requires input both at the planning stage and at execution including team members from IT, Engineering, Quality, Marketing, Label/Package Design, Supply Chain, and all partners. And training, offsite, totally focused on all possible impact points. is a terrific challenge...
