It is important now more than ever to generate value through the use of innovative manufacturing approaches. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the case of biopharmaceuticals where the era of the biological generic equivalent (bio similar), is upon us.
Today, for both pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products, new production methodologies and equipment platforms are providing new opportunities to rethink how products are made. This change has introduced vast opportunities to apply Lean Process Excellence methodologies. In particular, this change includes the switch from “push” to “pull” production.
The key drivers that engage this switch are:
- Cycle time reduction
- Lead time reduction
- Reduction in changeover time
- Reduction in all forms of waste (TIMWOOD)
- Reduction in WIP
- Proper integration of process unit operation
- Data transport
- Better sizing of equipment with batches
- Improved delivery reliability-process capability
- Takt time
How do you achieve all these changes?
Smart Consulting Group uses a three stage system of process design, customer-driven project management and Lean Process Excellence tools to drive the process.
