Operations are defined as the transformative process within a series of activities, along a value chain extending from supplier to customer. Operations Management designs, operates, and improves supply chain systems and provides the pharmaceutical industry with a knowledge base to promote the use of best practices and operational excellence within pharmaceutical operations management. This classroom course is designed to provide participants with a deep understanding of how to measure operational excellence including insights on relevant qualitative enablers as well as meaningful quantitative performance indicators.
Using the well-established architecture of the St. Gallen OPEX Benchmarking, this course also leverages this well-established industry-tested benchmarking approach. The combination of enablers, quantitative performance indicators and structural factors will allow you to develop a manufacturing strategy or establish an operational excellence program to improve effectiveness and efficiency. The course also defines a common language with which to discuss operations management, and introduces lean concepts. Additional content includes tools and techniques to help you identify appropriate solutions for specific problems to address issues in manufacturing and compliance.
Who Should Attend
Professionals with intermediate level experience in development, manufacturing, engineering, validation, quality, technology transfer and those wishing to understand and implement the concepts of operational excellence.
Continuing Education Units
ISPE will provide continuing education units (ISPE CEUs) for all North American seminars and courses, including educational programming at the ISPE Annual Meeting. CEUs are nationally recognized units of achievement designed for those individuals continuing their education in their chosen field or profession.
Delegates attending European seminars and courses will receive a Certificate of Attendance, as ISPE CEUs are currently not offered at European events. Verification of CEUs is based on attendance as well as satisfactory completion of all evaluation materials. Statements of credit will be available for download in your ISPE account within four weeks of the completion of training. Instruction for download will be sent when the CEUs are available. One hour of education programming equals 0.1 ISPE CEU credits.
