DCVMN Webinar: Conceptual Design: Key to get a GMP compliant facility (Telstar)

Abstract: Conceptual Design, is a key challenge in production efficiency, having a big impact on the feasibility of a tailor-made fit pharmaceutical plant. It has frequently been regarded as an unnecessary step when talking of a facility design, but, on the contrary, it should be seen as a key step to have a compliant facility suitable for the operations to be conducted.

A good conceptual design may lead to a well thought and managed facility…or not, but an unsatisfactory conceptual design will for sure lead to a defective facility, non-compliant or very inefficient. Therefore, it is extremely important to dedicate the time to execute this process and produce the correct design for the operations and products for each facility.
