Toyota’s approach to quality management has been built on two core pillars, kaizen, the philosophy of continuous improvement, and embracing teamwork and collaboration. This approach has proven to eliminate motion waste and non-value-adding business activities while improving operational workflows for Toyota.

With the automotive industry posing similar challenges in regulation, customer quality demand and complex supply chains to the pharmaceutical industry, this webinar will focus on how to incorporate Toyota’s philosophy into pharmaceutical labs to save time and money in drug development.

Industry experts from Merck will be diving into the main inventory management challenges faced by pharma labs, highlighting how this directly impacts research outcomes, costs and regulatory compliance.

Save your seat at this webinar panel to find out how to:

  • Evolve Toyota’s approach to quality management into a suitable cost-saving strategy for pharma labs.
  • Incorporate an inventory management solution to reduce motion waste and the required time on inventory management by 97 per cent.
  • Encourage continuous improvement in pharma labs.
  • Incorporate findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable data practices can reduce data management costs in the lab by €10.2bn (US$12.1bn) every year.
  • Implement quick steps to prevent spoilage waste that drains laboratory budgets.
