In today’s infographic we take a closer look at the guiding principles of a quality management system (QMS).  The goal of a QMS is to maintain compliance, drive continual improvement and support efficient and flexible processes.  A QMS is first established by assessing the short-falls of the current system and developing appropriate policies to achieve corporate quality goals. Once these are defined the standard operating procedures need to be implemented and personal buy-in from all levels of the organization must be achieved. Management will then monitor and review the outcomes, making additional adjustments to ensure continual improvement. Check out the infographic below for some quick insights on creating and monitoring a quality management system. For more in-depth information, strategies and best-practices attend the American Biomanufacturing Summit 2016 in San Diego this May.

Quality management is a key focus at the American Biomanufacturing Summit 2016.  Manufacturers are facing increased pressure to reduce product costs while producing “bio-better” drugs that have a vastly improved pharmacological profile. By implementing a quality management system biomanufacturers will be able to build consistency into their processes, improve efficiency, ensure profitability and drive operational and competitive advantages. Implementing a quality management system is no easy feat, the process requires an organizational evolution and involves the optimization of procedures, processes and resource allocation. To enable these changes an organization must first work to build an organizational culture that focuses on quality. The first infographic in our quality series has been created from the information presented by Tony Mire-Sluis, Vice President, North America, Abingdon, Singapore, Contract and Product Quality, Amgen Inc., at the American Biomanufacturing Summit last year.     Find out more about building a Culture focused on Quality at the American Biomanufacturing Summit 2016!
