How to take your pharma production to the next level with our pharma consulting services

Limited resources while keeping the costs at a limit in pharmaceutical production. Sounds like a familiar challenge? Having a partner that knows how to manoeuvre this is critical. External as well as internal influences keep changing and trends are ever evolving. Therefore, the need for flawless pharmaceutical processes is more important than ever. You may ask yourself, how can you optimize your production processes, kickstart digitization, or accelerate your time to production after buying new machines? This is where we step in, committed to advocating for your interests and delivering tangible results.

Highlights:  

  • Which pharma consulting services do we offer? 
  • What are your benefits? 
  • Why you should choose us

A lack of resources, a low Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), successful competitors and a never-ending list of regulations – does this struggle sound familiar to you? You’re not alone: Many companies deal with these topics making it challenging to navigate the path to success. As the industry faces regulatory hurdles and increasing demands, it’s imperative for pharmaceutical companies to find the right partner. A partner who not only offers a strategy but also executes it effectively. At Körber, we understand this and not only provide concepts and strategies but also work hand-in-hand with you to execute projects, lifting the weight of compliance off your shoulders. We love to find solutions that make your production processes easier, more efficient and profitable. Therefore, we offer a wide range of services with just one goal in mind: Accelerate your pharmaceutical production processes and further enhance your production potential. Whatever challenges you are facing – you will find what you are looking for in our large pool of expertise. 

Gain an insight into some of our services:

Our unique approach to machine qualification minimizes redundant testing and accelerates your time to production even further, enabling you to go into production significantly earlier. With our agile approach as well as the expertise and thoroughness of our consultants, we avoid redundant testing by re-using as many parts as possible from commissioning (FAT) for commissioning of machines (SAT) and only testing critical parts based on a detailed risk assessment. This will save you a lot of time and money – for example by going into production up to three months earlier than expected. Investing in our commissioning, qualification and validation consulting services is worth it – no matter if your machines are Körber or not. Trust in our expertise to ensure your projects run seamlessly.

Did your company just invest in new machines with the goal of having a higher output and efficiency as well as a quick return on investment (ROI)? If this transition doesn’t run as smoothly as you wished and your OEE falls short, we step in to evaluate your operations, including your processes, products, people and your overall organisation – identifying areas for improvement, and helping you reach maximum efficiency. By doing a detailed assessment, we are able to make suggestions for improvement to reach this goal – and even support you with implementing every step of the way. Our track record speaks for itself: With just the right tweaks based on our holistic assessments – for example reducing waiting times, optimizing transport routes and cycling efficiency – we were able to increase a clients’ OEE from 52% to a remarkable 80% with very little financial effort.

From paper solutions to being digital pioneers for the Industry 4.0? In the digital age, pharma manufacturers need to embrace digitization and digitalization – and develop further. You don’t know how to make your first step towards a digital transformation in key areas like connectivity, line-optimization and associated digital services? We assist you in assessing your digital maturity and formulating a strategy that ensures you stay ahead in this rapidly evolving landscape. And we not only suggest this strategy to be carried out, but we also support you step by step. With our experience in digital pharma consulting and having assisted many different companies in the industry, we provide the needed tools to evaluate your business in comparison with other companies on the market and therefore placing your status quo in the context of the industry. Additionally, we look to the future with you and all the possible trends that lie ahead, helping you to reach your goals within a specific timeframe.

Holistic solutions from a single source: Our one-stop-shop approach allows us to plan your entire production line, coordinating with various vendors to make your production dreams a reality. Out of all the available machinery on the market, we consider what is the best and select the most suitable option for you. We take care of the details, from the initial idea to the final product for your customers, so all you need to do is turn the key to start production. The biggest benefit: We can support you in reducing the complexity of your business even further by offering individual overall solutions within our Körber Ecosystem

Whether it’s evaluating MES solutions, implementing them, or providing ongoing support, we at Körber are your ideal partner when it comes to MES. By analysing all process steps, clarifying misinterpretations, and identifying process simplifications and optimization opportunities with the support of our consulting experts, one of our customers – Ferring Pharmaceuticals – was able to introduce a manufacturing execution system for electronic batch recording (EBR) successfully and seamlessly. In doing so, they for example eliminated 100% of typical batch documentation error and reduced batch deviations up to 25%. With our extensive market knowledge and experience of more than 20 years, we are equipped with the right resources to provide you with the best possible and tailor-made advice and represent your company accordingly in discussions with vendors. We are very familiar with the systems from leading providers, such as Werum PAS-X, Rockwell Automation PharmaSuite, Rockwell Software PMX MES, and others. Without being tied to a solitary manufacturer, we are your independent partner, always putting your individual interests first.
