ABSTRACT:
Lean philosophy is an emerging trend in manufacturing of pharmaceutical dosage forms. There is cut throat competition between pharmaceutical manufacturers to prepare drug products with superior quality at low cost. In this paper, lean principle for continuous tablet manufacturing process is discussed. The objective of the proposed manufacturing process is to maximize the production by reducing major types of wastes that absorbs money. The proposed process and design is compared with the commonly employed pharmaceutical manufacturing scenario. Restructuring of the production areas and equipments to the smallest possible unit is proposed for rapid area clearance by the quality assurance department. The proposed process can be adopted at the pharmaceutical industries for smoother production. An effort has been made in the present work to prevent delay in production.
