DEVELOPMENT OF INTEGRATED INDUSTRIAL PROCESS LAYOUT DESIGN FOR THE PRODUCTION AND QUALITY CONTROL FACILITY OF VARIOUS PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATIONSAbstract
Objectives: To develop an integrated industrial production and quality control layout which facilitates the pharmaceutical industries for manufacturing, controlling quality of various types of pharmaceutical formulations in a single production unit.
Methods: For designing the integrated process layout for the production and quality control, different operations and their sequences involved in the manufacturing and official tests to be met by various formulations had been considered respectively for achieving an efficient and effective movement of material and people.
Results: An ideal integrated industrial process layout for the production and quality control of various pharmaceutical formulations had been developed.
Conclusions: In the current marketing trend it is necessary for the manufacturer to shift from single line production layout to multi-product production (integrated) layout to maintain several types of formulations (product mix) to make his presence and sustaining in the market with involvement of economics.
