Hear Merck representatives Adam Duckworth, Associate Director, Knowledge Management Center of Excellence (KM CoE), and Douglas Arnold, Director, Account Manager of Pipeline and Knowledge Management, MMD Information Technology, as they talk about how they are using Semaphore to improve knowledge flow across all stages of drug development and manufacturing. Anne Lapkin, Smartlogic's senior vice president of global strategy, will host.Commercializing a promising drug candidate can take anywhere from 6 to 10 years, after which it might be manufactured at scale for decades, always undergoing continuous process improvement. Throughout this journey, the enterprise, including external partners, accumulates information about formulations, manufacturing methods, supply chain details and much, much more. A wide variety of groups across the enterprise creates this knowledge, with each group having a unique business language and approach for managing its information. Effective knowledge management is essential for bridging these pockets to drive reuse across groups and products. Making content more findable decreases the effort to develop and supply product, avoids manufacturing delays and leads to higher quality.
