Production planning optimization

N-SIDE experts can help you optimize all steps of manufacturing and drug flow (e.g. quantities, timing, allocation) across the clinical supply chain, from formulation to packaging and beyond.

Adapt your manufacturing to real-time events, manage risks, and plan up to 10 years out. If you have scarce resources, a complex manufacturing network, or a large amount of products, this service delivers valuable visibility, control, and waste reduction.


Strategic manufacturing
decisions optimization

Many important decisions need to be made in R&D manufacturing/CMC. Outsourced or in-house manufacturing? Which network should I use? What’s the optimal stability plan? What’s the best way to handle scale-up to Phase 3 and the transition to commercial?

N-SIDE clinical manufacturing specialists will use our software to optimize the most important strategic decisions for your program, delivering important cost savings and waste reduction.



Change management

Transitioning to a digital, data-driven clinical supply chain requires more than technology; it demands adaptation throughout the business.

N-SIDE experts will support your change management journey, starting with a clear vision associated with measurable added value for R&D efficiency.

Keeping this purpose in mind, N-SIDE will help your teams take advantage of advanced analytics to become a truly data-driven organization.


End-to-end program optimization

By optimizing manufacturing for the entire clinical program and optimizing supply for each individual trial, we can typically free up to 50% of the initially planned quantities and accelerate time to commercialization by 2-6 months.

We accomplish this by reducing drug needs at the trial level and limiting manufacturing waste. That enables us to either cancel production lots and re-allocate the resources to new programs, or to re-invest that drug into increased sites and recruitment speed.

Enabling optimal decision making in a rapidly evolving
energy system

N-SIDE helps system operators make optimal decisions in the accelerating energy transition by providing AI software solutions to make the right decisions in mission-critical activities, from system planning to the control room of the future.


Forecasting Algorithm IMG

Leveraging machine learning and optimization to provide decision support

The overall use of the power networks will increase, along with the volatility and uncertainty. For system operators, this means challenges in terms of deciding on CAPEX investments and operating of the network in a safe and reliable way.

Improve foresight on the grid and the energy markets

Renewable energy production, changes on the different commodity and balancing markets, or in the operations in neighbouring countries can have a large impact in the operational planning or real time operations of the grid. With its powerful forecasting solution and years of expertise, N-SIDE is specialized in delivering the most complex forecasts for system operators such as system imbalance, HVDC flows or congestions.

Operate the grid in a more optimal way

Operators will need to take more and more ambiguous decisions during operations in order to keep the grid secure while minimizing OPEX. The N-SIDE AI agents for active and reactive preventive remedial actions can be decision support for the operators or autonomously take actions on the grid such as redispatching, adapting reactive power setpoints, topological changes, etc. in real-time.

Optimally schedule planned outages

While the number of works on the grid is increasing, the windows of opportunity to execute those are more rare and unpredictable, which makes making planning a real challenge. Thanks to several years of co-creation with system operators, N-SIDE has developed a powerful Outage Planning Optimization engine, allowing to automatically schedule maintenance works and planned outages years until weeks ahead, while minimizing their impact on the power grid and market.

Plan the right CAPEX investments

System operators need to make important decisions in system planning in the years and decades to come. With its Probabilistic Grid Expansion Planning solution and consulting services, N-SIDE can help to take the optimal power system planning decisions regarding grid reinforcements, new lines, substations, storage capacities or demand response programs.

The N-SIDE Grid Solutions will empower you in evaluating and enhancing your current energy transition-critical activities and equipping your teams with state-of-the-art cutting-edge software.
