In this 5 June 2019 presentation at the BPI Theater at BIO, Jim Furey contended that the term Industry 4.0 is actually about developing robust sensor systems. A general manager at PendoTECH, Furey recounted experiences with biomanufacturers who chronically reported single-use sensor failures due to intense processing requirements. Even if a process does not involve harsh solvents, Furey points out, several preparation steps can pose problems for single-use sensor systems. Using these experiences, Furey makes the case for more carefully investigating single-use sensor systems as part of qualification for good manufacturing practice (GMP) processes.
