Vaccine manufacturing and speed to market: a project management perspective
Raul Soikes, the Senior Director for Program Management at Baxter Biopharma Solutions joined us at the 12th annual World Vaccine Congress in Washington this April to talk us through the project management perspective of vaccine manufacturing.
The key points Raul addressed in his talk were:
- Understand the seasonal vaccine campaign challenges and the importance of being the first to market the product, boosting your competitive advantage
- How to manage third party issues at campaign production start date without compressing an already tight production timeline impacting multiple resources and processes
- Explore how to prepare and accomplish timely manufacture of a seasonal vaccine campaign considering supply chain, quality, and facility aspects in an abbreviated time frame
