How to reduce downtime in your cleanroom

Downtime for a facility comes at a cost, and it isn’t cheap. Whether the cause is a planned shutdown for maintenance or an unforeseen closure due to contamination or equipment failure, any lost time should be minimised as much as possible as the impact can be far-reaching.

From labour costs, including outside contractors and idled operators, to production costs, including wasted product and materials—downtime can seriously affect overheads.

In this whitepaper, C2C’s GMP Validation & Quality Co-ordinator, Simon Rice, explains through design, effective maintenance, and calibration, downtime can be reduced so that only the minimum time to maintain, test, and requalify the facility is required.
