Building information modeling software improves efficiency.
Technology, like BIM, is changing more than just healthcare’s latest therapeutic modalities and pharmaceutical advances. It’s also disrupting the design and implementation of the facilities that create them.
Two years ago, I was introduced to my first IoT experience: A power sensing and analytics technology called Panoramic Power. This product is unique as it allows metering of amperage and power factor via clip-on current transformers that self-power and transmit data via Bluetooth.
A process model can be anything from a simple excel spreadsheet to a complex model that includes all aspects of a real-world manufacturing plant. However, the best model does not include everything. It only includes what is necessary to answer questions.
As clients’ budgets are getting tighter, every penny spent is scrutinized. Both capital and long-term operational costs are evaluated for optimal cost savings. Over the past decade, 3-phase, low-voltage, dry-type transformer efficiency has become a hot topic for owners and specifying engineers seeking to save money on the long-term operational costs within a facility.
A global specialty biopharmaceutical company entered into a public-private contract worth $220 million with the Biomedical Advance Research and Development Authority (BARDA) in 2012. Its primary goal was to establish a Center for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing (CIADM) to address challenges encountered in developing biodefense medical countermeasures.
