SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – QAD Inc., a leading provider of next-generation manufacturing and supply chain solutions in the cloud, today announced that QAD Director of Life Sciences Jennifer Petrosky will present at the Women in Manufacturing (WiM) West Regional Conference in Seattle, March 7-8, 2022.
Ms. Petrosky’s presentation, “Digital Transformation in Life Sciences Manufacturing,” will focus on how digital software technologies for manufacturing, engineering and quality assurance are enabling organizations to remove obstacles, automate common tasks and workflows, collaborate, and deliver innovative medical devices, diagnostics and therapies faster than ever before. Example use cases include a global cell and gene therapy manufacturer optimizing production planning to better target local, personalized treatments, and a regional medical device manufacturer supporting big demands with integrated financials, manufacturing, quality and regulatory reporting.
“Digital transformation and the application of software technologies like automation, modeling and simulation, and 3D printing are bringing manufacturing jobs back to the U.S.,” said Petrosky. “Empowering individuals with technologies that support their local community needs has never been more important to our economy and to our lives.”
