Biotech and pharma companies of all sizes outsource (or relocate) chemistry to Asia. The cost of managing transoceanic projects adversely impacts the yield, quality and cost advantage of outsourcing (or relocating). This presentation helps US-based companies to manage their suppliers (or subsidiaries) in an integrative, yet flexible, manner using their pre-existing laboratory informatics assets. This presentation first reviews the options available to US-based companies to monitor the progress of their suppliers (or subsidiaries) many time zones away. The presentation subsequently unveils a framework for selecting the most suitable project management solution based on practical and strategic consideration. Finally, the presentation introduces the case of chemical library outsourcing to Asia by a small US-based company and presents the preferred solution in this specific situation.
