    Description
    This module will provide an overview of the technical and managerial challenges associated with the design and construction of a modern biopharmaceutical manufacturing facility. It will address the major components of such an exercise including site planning through conceptual and detailed design and on to commissioning, start-up and validation. A typical case study illustrating the integrated approach to facility design will also be considered. Attention will be given to the day-to-day operation of a biopharmaceutical facility operating in a regulated environment. Following facility construction, issues such as materials flow, personnel flow and some general utilities necessary for successful production will also be discussed.
