Front end

The key to a successful project begins early during the planning phase. These first steps in the overall lifecycle of a project are the most critical to the project’s success in defining risk, compliance, efficiency, cost, delivery methodology and execution capability.

In pharma today, new major requirements arise more and more frequently. New products, changed capacity needs, technology transfers, changed processes and new regulatory requirements are just some of the factors that force companies to start new projects in order to stay in business.

And to ensure project success, manufacturers need to understand in full the implications of these changes to their manufacturing and development capacity and capabilities.

An interdisciplinary effort

The process of establishing goals, collecting and analysing the relative data, determining needs vs. wants, and developing and testing concepts requires an integrated body of knowledge across a wealth of disciplines.

Leveraging our in-depth understanding of pharma operations, NNE helps clarify and prioritise needs and requirements. We identify to-be capabilities (technical, regulatory and organisational), create baseline (as-is and gap analyses), define and prioritise design principles and criteria and create and evaluate design options. We also deliver business-oriented executive and operational plans and recommendations.

In the end, this provides our customers with a robust basis for decision and basis for design of potential facility investment projects. We strive to create the foundation for robust project execution, a design fit for the business intent, and in line with the customers’ implementation capabilities. Our goal is to reach innovative and efficient solutions to the most challenging manufacturing facility problems, focused on operability, compliance, utilisation and cost effectiveness.
