Manufacturing Technical Services (MTS) plays a critical role in ensuring that safe and efficacious products reach the market by the most cost-effective methods possible. During the manufacturing process, MTS is responsible for data handling, system validation, and manufacturing review processes, all of which -- if done well -- can avoid costly product recalls and facility shutdowns.
This Best Practices Benchmarking® Report examines productivity and quality issues in a highly-regarded group of pharmaceutical companies' MTS functions. Best Practices, LLC researchers analyzed several issues, including the structure, training, and communications between corporate headquarters and manufacturing sites, metrics for the quality of staffing and practices within sites, predictive staffing models, as well as methods by which companies can review and evaluate new technologies for their contribution to manufacturing productivity.
