CUSTOMER PROFILE

This Global Biotech/Pharmaceutical Leader (GBPL) is an intravenous drug manufacturing division of one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies.

THE CHALLENGE

GBPL’s process manufacturing operation depends upon a vast array of sterile equipment that must be cleaned, dried, sterilized, stocked and monitored between batches and then delivered to manufacturing locations within the facility in a timely fashion. Tracking and controlling of the equipment, coupled with lack of visibility were large issues.

OUR SOLUTION

GPBL chose Ultriva’s Lean Factory Management (LFM) to help GBPL’s manufacturing services group gain control of its equipment inventory by getting signals when production completes the usage or is running low on parts. LFM also provides visibility across the entire usage, cleaning and restocking loop. The entire application is automated through tablet devices on movable stations.

THE RESULTS

Usage velocity was measured (along with variability) to compute the optimal loop size and accurate safety stock levels for each component. Within 60 days of deploying Ultriva, GBPL’s manufacturing services team improved on-time delivery rates from 62% to 82% while eliminating stock-outs.
