OTTAWA, Ontario, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kinaxis®, provider of RapidResponse®, a cloud-based supply chain management (SCM) and sales and operations planning (S&OP) solution, today announced that Elisabeth Kaszas, Director of Supply Chain at Amgen, will present at LogiPharma Europe 2013. The event takes place April 23 - 24, 2013 at Hotel President Wilson, Geneva.
"A Journey towards Excellence in Network Planning & Optimization"
Rapid product portfolio expansion, dynamic market demand, a changing manufacturing network and long cycle times ultimately required Amgen to transform its planning organization. Their journey began four years ago with supply planning, expiry monitoring and scenario management. The initiative was driven by regional site and corporate planning process redesign as well as the global use of an integrated advanced planning system, RapidResponse from Kinaxis. During the conference we invite you to visit us at Booth #18 to learn more about the interrelation between:
- Consensus demand planning across affiliates & countries
- Supply and capacity planning balancing demand across regions
- Jurisdictional control to respect regulatory needs during planning
- FDASIA compliance for drug shortage analysis and reporting
- Collaborative launch management - Clinical, Regulatory, and Commercial
- Expiry management to balance long supply lead times and shifting demand
