About the book:
For example- Regulations, customer demands, competitor landscape, product criteria, facility needs, EHS (environmental, healthy & safety) needs as well as employee skills within pharmaceutical (medical devices and biotech) companies are extremely stringent and totally different from the automobile industry.
Moreover, auto industry manufacturing is 'assembly-based' while in pharmaceuticals and other life sciences companies, manufacturing is 'batch production-based'. Additionally, pharma industry 4.0 have automated and/or automatic production processes popularly known as 'continuous manufacturing' techniques. Therefore, Kaizen practices 'as is' from auto sector won’t work for pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotech organizations. Kaizen concepts must be customized for life science industries, to achieve its full benefits. So far, there is no book on Kaizen that is customized for pharmaceuticals and other life sciences industries.
