Free Webcast: Pfizer Reinvents Lean in the Pharma Lab

This June 9 program provides an inside look at how Pfizer is applying Lean principles to eliminate waste and improve workload volatility in the QA/QC lab.
May 12, 2011 - PRLog -- Lean principles must be applied differently outside of Manufacturing. Many life sciences QA/QC labs miss opportunities for Lean improvement and cost savings due to ineffectual waste elimination and an underappreciation of the impact of workload volatility.

In this program, Pfizer’s Ciarán Crosbie and BSM Ireland’s Lorcan Mannion illustrate how pharmaceutical QA/QC laboratories can master the concepts of levelling and flow and achieve significant cost and efficiency gains. The presentations are based upon successful implementations at Pfizer’s Grange Castle, Ireland facility.
