Shire HGT, a leading specialty biopharmaceutical company, needed to get their new facility in Lexington, Massachusetts completed fast, people with enzyme deficiency disorders need their medication. So they assembled a integrated, flexible, and empowered automation team and delivered the world's largest, and most technologically advanced biotech facility using single-use technology in record time. We will discuss how process development was accomplished using a “sand box” approach. We will discuss both the technologies and behaviors that were nurtured to allow the team to shave 6 months off an already aggressive schedule. Technologies employed included wireless, virtualization, rapid prototyping, Integrated commissioning and validation, web based project tracking, remote work centers, and templating. Behaviors encouraged included the use small teams, empowered decision making, and search and reapply. These technologies and behaviors were utilized to improve productivity, allow simultaneous project development and execution (configuration), and ultimately “..enable people with life-altering conditions to lead better lives.”
