Lean Manufacturing is increasingly being used in Life Sciences as a way to reduce costs and increase product output without impacting product quality. Documentation drives the processes in any manufacturing plant. Consequently, lean documentation and lean document control speeds up and enhances implementation of lean manufacturing.
Just as manufacturing process produces a product, controlled documents are the product of a business process. In manufacturing, a product cannot move forward if it is waiting for component parts, similarly, a document cannot move forward if it’s waiting for information, or if its use is constrained by other documents. Even though many life science companies advocate lean manufacturing, lean laboratory and lean operations, they often have cumbersome controlled documents and systems which cause significant operating expenses, and make it hard to introduce process improvements in a timely manner. In this session, you will learn how to implement lean documents and lean document control to cut costs, while maintaining compliance with regulatory authority requirements.
This 90-minute session with Angela Bazigos will explain the different types of documents and the usage of lean document principles in Manufacturing. She will describe why continuing to use current document control will prevent a manufacturing plant from fully realizing the benefits of lean manufacturing principles. Know how the use of Lean Documents and Lean Document Control will enable Manufacturing Operations to meet Lean Manufacturing Principles to reduce production costs without impacting product quality, and remaining compliant with regulatory authority expectations. Get heaps of examples on lean and non-lean controlled documents, difference between lean vs. non-lean documents, and more!
