Room: Union Station A 


In this session, we cover best practices and considerations for product stewards who use and manage PS systems/tools throughout the value chain process. Management of systems begins from initial setup, continued use, scalability, and system sustainability. Management systems are critical tools that can house various types of data, documents, determinations, and assessments from raw materials, formulations, products, and regulatory documents. To achieve operational excellence, product stewards should be at the center of well-integrated systems that tie to other core functions like R&D, marketing, supply chain, etc.

Presenters will cover common challenges and solutions to develop product stewards into becoming solution providers for their companies while complying with regulatory obligations. This session will be interactive and include dedicated time for audience discussion and debate.
