Batch Changeover Velocity

The 2021 Pfizer Tauber Project focuses on accelerating the pharmaceutical batch process velocity of clinical manufacturing in the Sandwich, UK facility.

The team will evaluate non-manufacturing activities and resources to identify specific improvement areas, create optimization mechanisms and tools, implement efficiency recommendations, and develop performance tracking measures.

Increasing manufacturing throughput and capacity utilization by 30% over the subsequent 12 months is the driving ambition that will expedite medicines to market and meet the unmet needs of patients globally.
