Smart Consulting Group’s core services are focused on helping you create a Lean Pharmaceutical laboratory and manufacturing environment, with systems and training to maximize your production and enhance your bottom line profits.  Just as important, we help you create these programs while also helping you streamline your compliance and regulatory requirements, using automated systems that let your people focus more of their time on your core business.

Implementing these services requires a wide variety of industry-specific expertise, and a knowledge base that is more than “big picture” concepts. Our team has in-lab and on-the-line hands-on experience in every core area of business.
