Project management in the pharma industry

Engineering support helps reduce complexity and operational costs in pharmaceutical projects

Due to the higher level of integration and automation, transferring a technology from clinical scale to manufacturing adds complexity. A great number of industrial measurement instruments are engineered, installed and qualified during project execution. Once put in operation, instruments must be maintained, verified and calibrated regularly. Early standardization, effective project management and an experienced project team can help simplify all these steps and shorten time-to-market.

What project management can do for you

Instrumentation is more complex than sometimes assumed. Especially since this is where automation and process world meet. But, when the right experts are already involved at this early stage of the project, operating costs and plant downtime can be minimized. To achieve this, you need a partner at your side who is ready to take on responsibility, from engineering through commissioning all the way to operational optimization.

  • Embedded engineers for standardization of best-fit instruments

  • Integrated fieldbus and calibration engineering for optimized plant availability

  • Harmonization of documents and certificates

  • Well-coordinated supply chain logistics

  • Qualification support from FAT to early operational phases

Engineering support

Depending on the size of the pharmaceutical project and the degree of process integration, an embedded engineer might be the right choice to handle increasing criticality and to reduce complexity.

  • Our engineer selects the right instrument for each application to ensure that it fulfills its measuring task optimally.

  • Calibration engineering reduces calibration downtime and assures compliance at all times.

  • Fieldbus engineering guarantees the overall performance of the fieldbus network.

Project management and supply chain optimization

Effective project management and supply chain optimization

To achieve a harmonized installed base and therefore reduce the complexity of pharmaceutical project management, it is important that all suppliers adhere to the standard instruments catalogue. An Endress+Hauser project manager ensures that this is implemented throughout the entire project. No matter where the suppliers are located, they can source instruments locally at the well-established Endress+Hauser global quality standard.
