Hours & Credits
This module will provide an overview of the technical and managerial challenges associated with the design and construction of a modern biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility. It will address the major components of such an exercise including site planning through conceptual and detailed design and on to commissioning, start-up and validation. A typical case study illustrating the integrated approach to facility design will also be considered. Attention will be given to the day-to-day operation of a biopharmaceutical facility operating in a regulated environment. Following facility construction, issues such as materials flow, personnel flow and some general utilities necessary for successful production will also be discussed.
1. Students will have an overview of the technical and managerial challenges associated with the design and construction of a modern biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility.
