Lean Laboratory Design and Operations



Today the modern pharmaceutical facility requires a nimble efficient QC Laboratory to support production operations.

At a time when many companies are experiencing very high levels of laboratory deviations, incidences and other non-conformances, the task at hand to correct these issues can become very onerous financially and time consuming.

Both of these factors can render your company non-competitive and result in the loss of important contracts. If this involves export materials to Europe or the US for example, then such situations involving egregious faults can lead to import bans. Presently there are over 30 Asian companies involved in import bans in the US.

Upon analysis, we find that many of these issues can be frequently attributed to the design of the laboratory and how it is operated.

If the facility, the layout and laboratory are less than advantageous to efficient, mistake free operations, technicians and analysts involved in playing catch up will cause more errors as they hurry up to clear the growing backlog of samples.

Adding more and more FTE’s is not the solution, as this can encumber an already inefficient situation.

There is a better way and that’s to drive quality compliance by re-designing the space and operating practices to operate in a streamlined way with smooth flow. This will result in analyses with fewer mistakes.

Driving compliance through Lean operation is a relatively new concept that works because both Lean and Quality compliance operate from common principles of standardized repeatable operations with predictable outcomes.

Smart Pharmaceutical Consulting is in India. We are working with Indian companies to implement this approach which is resulting in fewer than 483 observations and higher productivity.
