Apart of establishing appropriate strategy, implementing efficient processes and appointing the right people, establishing the appropriate tools is of equal importance

Efficient tools are usually customized to company’s business model and specific processes

Tools facilitating smooth operation should be established in almost all areas and help in performing the tasks easier and more automated, ensuring  process alignment with established strategy, monitoring progress (who, what, by when), providing statistical data that facilitate decisions future adjustments and changes.

Indicatively two specific tools are presented below

 

Immediate Quotation Model (IQM)

Developing a system that would allow fast estimation of cost and price based on specific assumptions provides an important competitive advantage by replying fast to RFQs without involving every department in the organization. It also facilitates scenarios evaluation in no time and thus better preparation for decision regarding the final offer, especially for CDMOs with multiple sites

 

Based on the equipment and output of your manufacturing sites, IQM provides immediate cost calculation based on the product assumptions that you select. IQM is also supporting in:

  • Providing RFQs to customers at the first stage of interest with limited information
  • Better understanding of areas for improvement in the manufacturing process
  • Benchmarking between sites
  • Forming business development strategies

 

Capacity Impact Modeling (CIM)

Monitoring and managing current and future available capacity is key in maximizing business outcome as well as in identifying well in advance investment needs for the coming years

 

We develop customized CIM:

By combining current line utilization, products that are expected to come (agreed new business) and pending RFQs the model:

  • Forecasts early in advance future potential capacity constraints or opportunities
  • Checks available capacity per equipment and translate it to number of units available (bulk units & finished packs)
  • Informs about overall available capacity per production step in units
  • Scenarios evaluation for facilitating strategic decisions
