Tech transfer

Bringing a new product or drug onto the market, outsourcing your production or relocating your location of production: this takes a lot of effort and time and any delay might result in loss of income. An efficient transfer of technologies between all parties involved can speed up this kind of processes. It lays the foundations for your further production process, control strategy, process validation and continuous improvement initiatives. QbD has developed a Lean Technology Transfer Framework that supports your tech transfer process more efficiently and rapidly.

Our Technology Transfer Framework as lingua franca

The scenarios mentioned above all involve a transfer of documented technical expertise and processes between a sending and receiving unit. This data exchange is absolutely crucial, as it forms the basis for all the development and production activities involved in bringing a product onto the market. However, very few companies have policies or a standardised approach in place to ensure adequate transfer of technologies between departments, companies or locations. The QbD Lean Technology Transfer Framework consists of a scenario, risk-based approach combined with templates. It serves as a lingua franca and ensures thorough understanding between both the sending and receiving units during your tech transfer.
