Operational excellence

Compared with other industrial sectors such as petrochemicals, there has been a very slow rate of introduction into pharmaceutical industry of modern process design principles, measurement and control technologies, and knowledge management systems. In recent years leading pharmaceutical manufacturers began to adopt proven best practice methodologies such as Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing.

Six Sigma provides a disciplined method and tools (including statistical) for eliminating errors in a process. Lean Manufacturing focuses on elimination waste and developing better work management; methods which are a cornerstone to an efficient business. Lean defines seven types of waste: overproduction, inventory, rework/rejects, motion, processing, waiting and transport.

The above mentioned quality management techniques are nowadays being combined with Process Analytical Technology (PAT) and Quality by Design (QbD) to improve quality on the shop floor.

 

Regulatory consulting

Ensuring the highest standards for regulatory compliance and quality systems is essential for any pharmaceutical company today. Increasing competition and potentially decreasing profit margins require the determination of adoption of the correct level of response to regulatory mandates.

This requires a risk-based approach. Our quality minded consultants could either guide you through this process or perform the required activities. Our specific services include a.o.

  • the implementation of quality systems
  • internal audits
  • drafting and submitting of submission files
