Resource Management.

Resource management is one of the most important aspects to total control manufacturing. It is the logistics of the organization – it is the right tools, materials, labor, and manufacturing conditions in the right place, at the right time. In smaller operations, managing these elements is often neglected, and is a root cause for inability to scale or perform tech transfer.

Materials used in manufacturing are allocated according to resources, processes, and product needs relative to raw materials, equipment, facilities, labor, and management, and are managed by the Quality department through the Quality Management System.

Action you can take:

Resource management starts with characterizing the logistics of your organization. We take a product based approach, listing out all resources need to take raw materials, etc, and turn them into a finished product. We are talking about total control, so this extends down to the lowliest of tasks such as daily sanitation activities and the resources needed to keep a sterile manufacturing environment. This sets your organization up with the minimum requirements for resource management that you can then build into your Quality Management Systems.
