More than 4,000 managers from 113 countries responded to this year's sustainability survey by MIT Sloan Management Review and the Boston Consulting Group. According to those respondents, 70% of companies have placed sustainability permanently on their management agendas; many companies have done so only in the past six years.
In the pharmaceutical industry, a small, but critical part of a company's asset management strategy should be the calibration of process instrumentation. Manufacturing plants need to be sure that their instrumentation products - temperature sensors, pressure transducers, flow meters and the like - are performing and measuring to specified tolerances. If sensors drift out of their specification range, the consequences can be disastrous, perhaps resulting in costly production downtime, safety issues or batches of inferior quality goods being produced, which then have to be scrapped. Learn how calibration management software can help you avoid these pitfalls.
Pharmaceutical Quality by Design has entered a new era-one of fading skepticism and accelerated uptake. Now that the industry has bought in, the challenge is to rethink the possibilities of what benefits QbD can provide.
Just a decade ago, it could take four to six years to bring a new biopharma plant onstream. Today, thanks to modular construction and single-use processing equipment, a multipurpose facility can be brought online in as little as 12 months. Timelines are shrinking to a point where they may soon be measured in months. In this Special Report e-Resource, experts in designing, implementing and operating these facilities explain the quickly changing ground rules and what they mean for the industry, and share best practices.
