Sanofi’s supply team has successfully implemented the N-SIDE optimization solution, CT-FAST.  The proven strategy led the team to become the proud winners of the 2016 Best Operational Excellence Award at the company’s Global R&D Awards.

The implementation of N-SIDE’s CT-FAST solution resulted in the Sanofi clinical supply team moving towards an end-to-end optimisation approach and challenging standard practices. The results provide the optimal global strategy to take the best decisions throughout the entire supply chain according to the study specificities.  With simulations, all of the inputs sued as assumptions for the trial are made explicit and can be examined  with the Sanofi clinical team. As is the case for most clinical trials all over the world, clinical assumptions may be subject to many changes, affecting supply chain planning. These changes may lead to supply chain inefficiencies such as budget increases and extra risk of patients missing a dose.  Being able to proactively work on these clinical assumptions and assess the impact of potential changes is therefore key to safely and efficiently handling the clinical trial.
