An Innovative Approach to Improving 'First Pass Success' of Production Scale Column Packing
Room: 1E12 ~ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm (Tuesday, March 29, 2011)
This is a case study about a biopharmaceutical company striving to meet market demand by increasing the production of their product. This was easier said than done. They had historically experienced inconsistent performance in the packing of Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) columns within the purification process. This inconsistency was quickly becoming a bottleneck to adequately supplying patients with the drug.
Addressing the issues associated with SEC column packing became a top priority for the manufacturing leadership.
The application of a structured approach utilizing Lean and Operational Excellence (OE) tools was undertaken by the company, with the assistance Maxiom Group, to improve the SEC column packing process. By utilizing a combination of both internal and external resources and expertise, they were able to quickly develop and implement this improved process. Over all, success of this collaboration and the use of process innovation tools and techniques have formed a new model for the company to employ during complex business and technical process redesign efforts.
This presentation will address the challenges with SEC, how the issues were addressed and the benefits and lessons learned
