The benefits of flexible facilities

In a recent article at Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, Eric Unrau, Director of International Operations for CRB Consulting Engineers, sat down to talk some of the benefits of the new trend of creating flexible facilities when developing manufacturing facilities for pharmaceutical products.  The facilities are specifically created for the drug being made and at the requests of the Pharma companies which leads to reduced investments and faster schedules.  Due to the designed production equipment for the pharmaceuticals, product quality rises as well as a reduced risk for patients and regulatory.  When creating the facilities, CRB Consulting Engineers consider technologies, business drivers, design, quality, maintenance, safety, environmental and operations initiatives.  In the article, they take a look at how Shire pushed this envelope on taking advantage of these technologies.Read it here.
