Conference: Laboratory Optimization, Automation and Digitalization
23 November 2022
The aim of this conference is to show possibilities to optimize the organization of a laboratory and to reduce costs. The topics LEAN, both for the laboratory and laboratory management and the optimization of structures and processes in the laboratory, are addressed. Furthermore, the possibilities of automation are presented and the benefits that can result from the optimization of the method portfolio. Equally modern approaches to cost savings through reduced testing and reduced sampling while maintaining GMP compliance will be presented.
The pressure that the pharmaceutical industry is under today to reduce costs and increase efficiency and effectiveness applies equally to analytical laboratories. Often waiting for the results of quality control is still a speed-limiting step in the entire production process.
Many modern tools such as LEAN, Six Sigma, CIP, etc. are increasingly used to increase the efficiency (also) of analytical laboratories.
The correct recording and evaluation of the "Key Performance Indicators" (KPIs) plays a decisive role in this. Which of these factors are really "key", which ones can be dispensed with?
With this conference, managers and employees in the laboratory learn tools for more effective and efficient control of laboratory activities.
- LEAN in QC
- Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
- Optimization of laboratory processes - practical examples
- Cost-efficient design of a laboratory
- Case Studies for Laboratory Automation
- New analysis methods for the optimization of processes in the laboratory
- Reduced sampling and reduced scope of testing in the incoming goods inspection of active and auxiliary materials
This conference is aimed at laboratory managers and laboratory staff in the pharmaceutical industry who work in the areas of incoming goods inspection, finished goods inspection and analytical development. Also addressed are laboratory managers in the field of pharmaceutical active ingredient and excipient production and contract laboratories. The contents will also be of great interest to competent persons according to §14 AMG and to heads of quality control as well as to employees from the QA department.
