I recently collaborated with Elizabeth Vail to write an article around how Q Data approaches implementing value-add solutions to their customers in the Supply Chain space. With our Supply Chain Extended Solutions (ES+) practice focusing directly on this area we cover how value can be brought in to the supply chain if you adopt the right solution, implemented using the right methodology… To read the full article go to Supply Chain World Magazine – Connecting the Dots Article.

Seminar Overview

Eventbrite - 1st Annual Serialized Track and Trace Seminar

Date: 12th March – 8 sessions starting 8am PST and ending at 3pm PST

Congress enacted the Drug Quality and Security Act of 2013 (DQSA), formerly referred to as HR 3204, in November 2013 and it starts to take effect in a significant way in January 2015. You should be planning to attend the 1st annual Serialized Track-and-Trace Seminar on 12th March, 2014. It’s a virtual seminar that allows you to attend the sessions from the comfort of your own home or office, yet you still have access to all the content and experts that you would expect from a live event. It’s a truly unique and valuable opportunity for those focused on these latest changes in legislation for the Pharma industry.


If you are a pharmaceutical manufacturer, repackager, wholesaler or dispenser of drug products then the DQSA Law (H.R. 3204) passed on November 27th 2013 is applicable to you. It supersedes all current state laws including the California e-Pedigree law. In this article I will focus on the timelines applicable for a drug product manufacturer. In future articles I will deal with the timelines for the other supply chain players.

New SAP EM Notes available

Written by
Check out the following notes that have just been released that are well overdue:
  • Note 1896469 – Activity ACT_EE_MODIFY does not use expected event profile – This note will resolve issue of not considering EE profile while updating/adding expected events from EE_MODIFY
  • Note 1890458 – New activity method to update system parameters dynamically – This will allow parameters that can be changed to be used as a system parameter…

What information needs to be captured? What kind of labeling is needed to document the package? Do we need to cater for unit, pack and pallet levels of packaging? Can the solution handle sequential and random serial numbers? What standards does the solution adhere to in terms of serialization? E.g. GS1 standards.
