Scale and Production Planning

Rapid business growth is both a blessing and a challenge. In today’s virtual world, companies often rely on outside third-party manufacturers for API development, scale-up, clinical supply manufacturing, process validation and commercial scalability production. These CMOs are almost always full service, multi-product, multi-customer plants. Planning for success at each stage of development requires a balanced understanding of production input variables such as labor, materials, equipment/plant time, product knowledge, regulatory requirements and capital costs. These must be viewed relative to expected output including: delivery quantity, timing, quality specifications, regulatory documentation, and more. A systematic approach is critical for planning both your near-term production needs and the manufacturing scalability required for regulatory filing and commercial launch success. We are happy to work with your team to assess or develop appropriate manufacturing scale and production planning models.
