Equipment specification and testing
Equipment specification and installation support
Pre-FAT and FAT will be initially performed at the manufacturer’s site to ensure the equipment operates as it is intended to meet all user requirements. The same would be performed again once the equipment has been delivered to the client’s site in the form of SAT where IQ, OQ and PQ will be performed.
Primary liquid filling equipment
Procuring and installing a liquid filler starts with understanding the key performance requirements. Clear acceptance requirements and understanding how the equipment will meet each one is crucial to success.
Primary and secondary label application operations and equipment
Labeling operations and equipment options vary considerably with manufacturing demand requirements. An efficient process is designed to produce quality products at speeds and volume required to meet the market demands utilizing the available resources.
Barcoding and ERP (SAP & OPM) integrations
Most people know a barcode when they see one but what they don’t know is the decisions behind the selection of the code symbology and printing methods. A barcode is more than simply a replacement of human keystrokes and must work hand-in-hand with the system that uses them.
Process design and documentation support
A packaging process must be designed to efficiently meet demand without over producing and creating waste. Standard operating procedures are required to train operators on best practices. For long-term performance and compliance, scheduled Preventive Maintenance and calibration plans must be created with the agreement of the client’s maintenance/metrology team and/or with the manufacturer.
