Welcome to AlfaNordic A/S - Excellence in GMP

Project Management & Process

From single lines to entire plants

AlfaNordic’s Project management and Process consultants

During recent years, the pharmaceutical industry has been subject to a great number of changes in the market, with high expectations for growth and performance. The regulatory requirements are increasing and, at the same time, so are expectations for an even faster ”time to market” for new products. The equity must yield interest and must be invested in the right projects, and once the decision has been made, the project must be executed and managed, meeting timelines, economy and quality without surprises emerging during the process. Many companies have also established a framework course of events and a need for governance that the projects must follow in order to be exposed to a minimum of risk during the execution. Planning is crucial for the projects and is essential for making resources and internal staffing meet the project’s requirements.

This calls for skilled project managers who have gained experience from similar projects, possess strong tools to define scope, prepare budgets, plan and put the project out to tender and enter into contracts and not least perform risk management of the projects. In other cases, the projects need specialised discipline leaders or package owners, with emphasis on the technical discipline and GMP. Both management functions are based on the assumption that the right person with the right competencies is available and can be dedicated to the projects.

AlfaNordic Project management and Process consultants know the pharmaceutical industry’s challenges and help a number of the industry’s companies manage their projects from conceptual design to commissioned plant. In this way, the companies can get the right project and technical discipline leaders for a safe execution of the projects with focus on time schedule, economy and quality at the specified level. And they can, at the same time, minimise the use of internal resources.

We can help our customers by providing extremely skilled technical discipline competencies

Our project management competencies range widely within the pharmaceutical industry where knowledge of and experience with GMP are necessary. From raw material plants and utility systems over filling and packing lines to complete plants for vaccine and other products. We have at our disposal a number of extremely experienced project managers who have managed projects through all project phases and have facilitated cooperation processes with project teams made up of competencies across countries, skills and experience. We also have at our disposal technical discipline leaders with particularly strong technical disciplines within Automation, Process(chemistry), Process(mechanical) or HVAC and who have long experience as technical discipline leaders and are used to manage technical disciplines and teams.
