Lean Manufacturing is increasingly being used in Life Sciences as a way to reduce costs and increase product output without impacting product quality. Documentation drives the processes in any manufacturing plant. Consequently, lean documentation and lean document control speeds up and enhances implementation of lean manufacturing.
Just as a manufacturing process produces a product, controlled documents are the product of a business process. Just as in manufacturing, a product cannot move forward if it is waiting for component parts, a document cannot move forward if it is waiting for information, or if its use is constrained by other documents. Although many life science companies advocate lean manufacturing, lean laboratory, and lean operations, they have cumbersome controlled documents and systems which cause significant operating expenses, and make it difficult to introduce process improvements in a timely manner.
This webinar will show you how to implement lean documents and lean document control to cut costs, while maintaining compliance with regulatory authority requirements.
