WHY is this comparison important to the FDA and the Pharmaceutical Industry?

  • The automotive industry has already gone through a transition in response to external forces

  • We perceive that the Pharmaceutical industry is currently experiencing analogous forces

  • There are significant “lessons learned” which could result in savings of time, effort and resources

  • It is important to look at different manufacturing industries as a source of innovation and learning

A Number of Events / Trends Occurred in the Period Between 1975 and 1985 Which Were The Impetus For Change in the Automotive Industry:

  • Pricing Pressures: An Increase in Oil Prices and the OPEC Embargos

  • Domestic Quality Problems

  • Growing Foreign Competition

Lessons Learned from the Automotive Industry:

It is important to:

  • Understand what your customer values

    • what they need, want, and are willing to pay for

  • Be mindful of your competition

    • what they are doing to gain competitive advantage

  • Develop a strong focus on product quality

    • This has not been a moving target but a rising bar

Lessons Learned from the Automotive Industry:

It is also important to:

  • Adopt a culture of continuous improvement

    • continuous improvement in quality, cost and timing are essential to survival – the tools are necessary, but not sufficient to drive the shift in thinking that is required

  • Focus on the integration of effort

    • between product design, engineering, operations and quality functions

  • Redefine “mass production”

    • by insuring quality at the source vs. inspecting quality into the finished product

Similar Trends That Are Arising in the Pharmaceutical Industry:

  • Pricing Pressures

  • Regulatory Pressures

  • Patent Protection Pressures

  • Foreign Factors

Our Current Thinking Around the

Applicability of Automotive “Lessons Learned” to the PAT Movement:

  • Learning to Manage Volumes of Data

  • Measurement Systems are Critical

  • Developing an Understanding of the Process

  • Simplicity and Parsimony in all Things

Our Current Thinking Around the

Applicability of Automotive “Lessons Learned” to the PAT Movement:

  • Learn from other manufacturing industries that have made similar transformations as a way of accelerating your progress along the continuous improvement curve

  • PAT is a step in the product quality journey, but you must also consider the other elements of that journey such as:

    • An emphasis on process stability and capability

    • Quality assurance at the source

    • In-Process Error reduction strategies

    • Workforce dynamics that can help or hinder your change management initiatives
