The Usage of PI Analysis and SQC to Reduce Deviations in Fill Finish Lines.
In the past, several recent events in Abbott Nutrition have revealed the lack of knowledge of critical process parameters, lack of data collection and review, Abbott Nutrition vision is to be a company where Process Control is used to characterize product and processes and to improve capacity in all sites. This presentation will outline Abbott Nutrition approach to implement PI SQC Analysis helping the operators and engineers to reduce number of exceptions that results in lower cost of quality, faster batch release, increase yields and finally rework/destructs reduction improving customer protection. We will navigate through the different phases during the packaging flexible project execution and the complete data flow integration from OPC servers to external SPC applications with PI System as core.
