Progress-EXS Lean Six Sigma for Life Science & Pharma


Progress-EXS Lean Six Sigma for Life Science & Pharma


Print

Products & Services | Progress-EXS

Progress Executive Services (Progress-EXS) has launched Lean Six Sigma for Life Science & Pharma as a tailor made service that can help companies in the health care and pharmaceutical sectors improve the efficiency of their product development, production & supply chain management.

Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is a proven methodology for improvement of processes and organizations that provides a structured approach to creating demonstrable, concrete and lasting improvements.

The Progress-EXS approach to LSS is tailored to the needs of pharma and life sciences, recognizing fundamental aspects such as process development, compliant production, assay documentation, QA/QC and regulatory affairs. Distinctively, it applies LSS not just to production but across the entire value chain from discovery to delivery.

Lean Six Sigma applications

The Lean Six Sigma (LSS) service is designed for the needs of senior executives within the Life Sciences and Pharma industries concerned that sub-optimal business performance is jeopardizing the development and sustainability of their companies. It is also designed to meet stakeholder concerns about cost reductions or to achieve faster times to market across the product development portfolio.

The LSS approach provides direct answers to questions that include:

  • How can we increase the efficiency of product development?
  • How can we reduce time to market?
  • Can the handover between development and commercial production be more effective?
  • How can we increase the efficiency of production and supply chain?
  • Do we have good practices for continuous improvement in place?

Lean Six Sigma benefits

Progress EXS offers Lean Six Sigma programs that are tailored to the needs of the pharma, biotech and healthcare sectors, emphasizing Lean processes, standard tools and Ways Of Working and continuous improvement.

This approach offers six key elements for success and sustainability:

  • Process optimization
  • Performance measures (analytics & six sigma)
  • A ‘lean way of working’
  • Visual management & dashboards
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Lean organization & leadership

For product development, Lean Six Sigma delivers reduced time to market, improved cost effectiveness, increased success rate in product development programs and better transfer from product development to commercial production.

For production & supply chain, Lean Six Sigma can achieve better compliance and product quality, operational excellence, reduced operational costs and optimized supply chains.

Sequence and Approach

Progress-EXS consultants start by working with the client to assess the current LSS maturity level of the organization to define the starting point for the LSS Journey.

The next step is to develop a tailor made program that best fits the organization, based on a range of validated LSS techniques. This includes:

  • Fast track results by identification & implementation of Quick Wins at the early stage of the program
  • Co-development of Lean Tools & Way of Working with the client team to ensure ownership, embedding and sustainability
  • Change management to support the new way of working on all levels in the organization

The client organization does not need experience with Lean Six Sigma processes. Training and coaching are included in the program.

Client Feedback

Progress-EXS has already implemented LSS programs within a number of pharma and life science organizations, gaining positive results and client feedback.

A pharma client based in the USA commented: “Within four months, the OTIF (‘On-Time-In-Full’) of our production process and supply chain was increased from 60% towards 95%. Our teams were able to sustain this performance.”

From the Netherlands, a client company working in life sciences, said; “By eliminating complexity from our organization, our processes & our technologies, we substantially improved our output, while reducing investments and risks during new product development.”

Another life sciences client, based in Belgium, commented: “Within five months, we designed our production process and co-developed a tailormade ‘Lean way of working’ together with the Progress team. We are now sustaining the improved performance in an easy way.”

Progress-EXS CMC QuickScan tool for faster time-to-market


Progress-EXS CMC QuickScan tool for faster time-to-market


Print

Products & Services | Progress-EXS

Progress Executive Services (Progress-EXS) can use its proprietary analytical QuickScan tools to identify critical gaps in product development strategy and accelerate time-to-market. These tools include Scan Time-to-Market (CMC), Scan License-to-Operate (GMP) and Scan Efficient/Effective Processes (Lean Six Sigma). Quick Scans deliver detailed reports including all identified gaps plus C-Suite presentations including explicit recommendations that can simplify internal decision-making processes.

CMC QuickScan supports pharma and biotech companies in reducing their time to market by helping them optimize their chemistry, manufacturing and control protocols during drug development.

CMC challenges

Chemistry, Manufacturing & Control (CMC) protocols cover the whole range of new drug development and manufacturing activities. Typically the CMC process is both lengthy and costly, placing strain on project feasibility.

Typical CMC pitfalls include:

  • Shortcuts taken during development that add later costs and delays to approval and manufacturing
  • Lack of integrated development strategy due to siloed departments or short-term horizons
  • Knowledge gaps about regulatory requirements
  • Selecting reworking strategies for ‘quick wins’, postponing true problem-solving to a later stage with negative impact on overall project progress and integrity
  • Lack of ownership when outsourcing to CRO or CMO with resulting gaps that increase project risk and cost

Remaining on CMC track

Product development within biotech is notoriously risky, costly and time consuming. This challenging environment requires well thought through strategies and proper resource allocation from senior executives.

The decision-making process for executives becomes a continuous challenge in current competitive markets. Progress-EXS has developed the CMC QuickScan to provide fast and accurate answers to the key questions that determine rapid identification and visualization of the correct strategy to follow:

  • What are the major risks in bringing this new product to the market?
  • Do we have any gap from a product development perspective? Are we on the right track?
  • Is it worth to keep investing on this product? Or shall we stop and change direction?
  • What is still required to be ready for submission?
  • Can we cut development work to be first on the market?

Progress-EXS CMC QuickScan

The Chemistry, Manufacturing and Control (CMC) QuickScan is a risk management tool that facilitates rapid identification and visualization of current and potential CMC risks, specifically designed for biologicals.

The CMC QuickScan provides quantified measurements of how far the drug developer is from regulatory submission readiness, what current gaps might put regulatory approval at risk and any potential future risks affect overall product development strategy.

In short, the tool allows Progress-ESX to evaluate clients’ CMC strategies from an external perspective to verify that they are on the right track.

QuickScan process

The QuickScan process begins with an initial meeting to determine specific situation and objectives between Progress-EXS consultants and senior project owners, who will act as sponsor of the QuickScan exercise.

Thereafter, the exercise will move through four steps:

  1. Kick off meeting (1 day)
  2. Technical visit (1-2 days)
  3. Data analysis and reporting (1-2 weeks)
  4. Executive presentation of findings (two hours)

QuickScan benefits

The Progress-EXS CMC QuickScan delivers full itemization of current and potential future gaps encountered across the whole product development project and strategy, allowing better understanding of the risks facing the project as a whole and the milestones that must be passed to satisfy regulatory requirements and comply with current industry standards.

It will deliver a fully detailed written report with all findings categorized according to criticality.

Presentation of the report will include summarised findings and itemized recommendations, along with a mitigation plan.

Throughout the process, Progress-EXS aims to work with maximum transparency and collaboration to foster the mutual trust required for best results.
