The Big Data (BD) Program is focused on how advanced uses of data could be transformative for the manufacturing of biopharmaceuticals. The program is composed of five focus areas for further development within the NIIMBL BD program: 1) Standardization and Contextualization of Data, 2) Advanced and Integrated Control, 3) Advanced Sensors and Data Analytics, 4) Creation of Rich Datasets, and 5) Advanced Modeling Approaches.
Individual and collective improvements in these independent but synergistic areas will support implementation of Manufacturing 4.0 principles in biomanufacturing. All these areas will benefit from collaborative developments by the broad industry, academia, and government network which exists within NIIMBL. In addition to developing solutions, the BD program will adopt new approaches evolved from other industries and collaborative efforts to support other NIIMBL-led programs as data is their common currency. The creation and collective adoption of tools to enable advanced uses of data aligned with the needs of biomanufacturers, suppliers, regulators, and patients supports the NIIMBL mission to accelerate biopharmaceutical manufacturing innovation and maintain US competitiveness in this important industry sector.
