Lean Manufacturing

We understand the value of creating an optimized supply chain in order to meet the challenges of today’s clinical trials. In order to respond to these challenges and respond to time sensitive supply chains, Almac offers a Lean Manufacturing solution to ensure clinical supplies are packaged and approved for shipment in less time than traditional manufacturing. Expedited operational steps and true lean processes are implemented to significantly shorten the delivery timeline. These timelines can be reduced from months to weeks. Almac’s Lean Manufacturing solution is ideal for smaller, less complex operations.

Features and Benefits:

  • Reduce timelines by up to eight weeks to deliver packaged supplies from quotation to release of supplies for shipment to sites or depots
  • Shorten study start-up and shorter production, review and release of clinical trial supplies
  • Smaller batches of clinical material produced more frequently to minimize waste and lower supply overages, leading to cost efficiencies
  • Lean operations are achieved using abbreviated processes and dedicated handling
