Itasca, IL (PRWEB) January 23, 2006
Launched in 2005, the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Team of the Year Award recognizes teams that have achieved the most significant results in improving drug manufacturing, both on the bottom line and in less tangible areas such as empowerment and morale.
Teams at any pharmaceutical or biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility of any size — located anywhere in the world — are eligible.
Last year, teams from Bristol-Myers Squibb, Baxter Healthcare, Pfizer, Novartis, Wyeth and other major manufacturers were honored.
If you know of a team that has reduced reject rates, cycle times, equipment downtime; boosted customer service and product quality and consistency; improved staff training and overall morale, or all of the above, please nominate them.
Nominations can come from colleagues, consultants and vendors who have worked with the teams they nominate. And of course, teams are welcome to apply. All teams will be judged impartially on their own merits, with any references to company name or facility location removed, by a panel of experts on Lean, operational excellence and drug manufacturing quality, including our editorial advisory board.
Winning teams will receive a commemorative crystal trophy and other prizes at their manufacturing facilities. Pharmaceutical Manufacturing will report on finalist teams in April's cover feature and announce the winners in May
