Six Sigma Process

The six sigma methodology is based on the identification, recognition and definition of the problems faced in the production process. Also, the method involves the characterization, measurement and analysis of data so as to identify weaknesses in the production process.

This optimizes quality control systems in the production process thereby increasing production and innovation while at the same time, reducing cycle times. By implementing the 6 sigma technique, the pharmaceutical industry can improve the plant floor and therefore be able to realize similar success seen in other industries.

Six Sigma has tools that smooth the implementation process by eliminating mistakes that occur during the process. These tools are not only simpler for the employee to grasp but also, play a similar role in quality assurance and risk management.

On the other hand, the six sigma method makes it easier for pharmaceutical companies to develop processes that result in predefined quality at the end of the manufacturing process. The implementation of the six sigma in the pharmaceuticals industry helps in:

– Preventing rejects
– Reducing production cycle times
– Facilitating continuous process improvement
– Increasing automation
