The so-called Smart Industry also entails a statistical evolution from the classical process under statistical control towards an adaptative process management.

Big data is just one of the mechanisms that drives the data to a new worth state mainly based on previous experiences, but AI is the main trigger that shifts the information into predictions, recommendations, classifications and automatic recognitions. Data is not the new oil anymore, becoming the energy that needs to be transformed to get power.

How AI and data that produces it can be integrated in the regulated ecosystem? Which is the attitude of the regulators in front of the new way to do statistics? What use cases can be applied ensuring a quick win?



Bigfinite is a SaaS platform that uses IoT, big data, AI and cloud technologies to provide solutions for manufacturing pharma that today cannot be solved with the current solutions. Bigfinite platform allows users to discover new ways to optimize processes, reduce manufacturing quality issues and enhance regulatory compliance, leading to an ROI within 6 months.
