Zeng, Amy Z

Abstract

The goal of this project was to analyze the Novartis Vaccine and Diagnostics supply chain. We first constructed a value stream map of Novartis swine flu vaccine supply chain based on extensive data collection and analysis of existing operational structures. We then created an Excel based simulation tool that determines the time-dependent dosage demand for the manufacturing system. Finally, we compared Novartis supply chain with the top players at strategic level to generate more suggestions for Novartis future improvement efforts.
