Did you know, one of the leading pharma solutions providers was able to reduce their loss by 50,000 pounds after implementing six sigma strategies? In this blog, we will discuss How Benefits Delivered with Six Sigma in Pharma Industry.
The organisation is a leader in producing solutions in the domain of pharma, veterinary, biological and consumer health industries. The organisation faced a high number of faults after producing millions of units. The process flow was slow and the reason for slow speed was the time taken to analyse the samples.
As a result, the organisation was facing a high amount of loss by defective products. Seeing this, the management called a meeting wherein they decided to implement six sigma processes to eliminate the defects.
Improve Efficiency in Pharma Industry
The organisation specifically needed a solution for one of their exclusive products. The organisation required new systems that might help to forecast the process variation. The changes were expected to help the ground floor operators understand statistical analysis.
The project team created a database to gather information. Control charts were completed and entered spontaneously. The programming language used for automation was adaptable and easy to replicate. The efficiency at the shop floor was improved by implementing these changes. After two weeks of applying Six Sigma processes, the organisation saved the loss of two batches of product worth 50,000 pounds.
Hence implementing six sigma processes can help organisations improve processes to meet Six Sigma standards, prevent loses and save money. Have you started implementing six sigma processes at your organisations?
