Lead continuous improvement through process optimization of physical Flow lanes (e.g. product life-cycle management, process troubleshooting, yield improvements) while ensuring compliance with government regulations and West-Ward Pharmaceuticals standards. Implement innovative new process, technology, quality, and compliance approaches (e.g. CIA and CAPA) at West-Ward Pharmaceuticals.
Strengthen the process-related technical skill sets of Flow organization personnel through training and sharing of best practices.
Provide leadership and mentoring to others within the organization.
Manage the life cycle of launched products on an assigned basis to support development of robust manufacturing processes, drive site right-first time metrics, and reduce product rejects.
Actively seeks out and identifies process optimization opportunities. Performs appropriate assessment of risk vs. benefit, participates in cross-functional assessments as required to evaluate opportunities, and implements improvements.
Partner with peers (e.g. Physical Flow, Equipment Optimizer, Quality Optimizer, and QAI) to lead root cause analysis and CAPA review, facilitating rapid closure of deviations and ensuring actions are taken to prevent recurrence.
Actively seeks out and identifies CAPA opportunities; pro-actively targets areas of potential risk. Evaluates opportunities for impact, cost effectiveness, and scope (e.g. applicability to other Flows and/or other West-Ward sites).
