Top pharmaceutical manufacturing plants strive to achieve efficient operations that result in increased profitability as well as superior product quality and satisfied customers. These are the findings of a new study from market research company Best Practices.

The report, that set out to investigate the top-performing North American pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, discovered that capacity utilisation is a key driver in cost management and production efficiency. Those facilities getting the most out of their equipment tend to perform better in most categories measured in the study.

A greater variety of product types can lead to under-utilised equipment and diluted management, maintenance, and quality focus, highlights the report. For most companies, focusing on one type of manufacturing process, or a limited line of products, yields significant efficiencies, economies of scale, and a 'fine-tuned operational excellence'.

"A solid understanding of manufacturing costs among world-class companies is the first step in evaluating a company's own current practices,"​ said Keith Symmers, vice president at Best Practices.

Findings from the report​ were gleaned after interviews and surveys at 11 plants belonging to nine pharmaceutical companies.
