2022 ISPE Annual Meeting & Expo

SES112a - Is your Facility on Borrowed Time? How to get the most bang for your buck

Oct 31, 2022 3:30pm ‐ Oct 31, 2022 5:00pm


This presentation will be interactive, engaging the audience to participate by posing questions and asking for their experiences and examples. We start by introducing “the why,” followed with an outline of the regulatory drivers for upgrading a legacy facility, associated consequences, and so forth. 

Following the introduction, we then introduce the business case framework.

  • Problem statement: Regulatory issues and their associated consequences are described in detail.
  • Scope: Alignment on current portfolio and future capabilities.
  • Financials: Robust project financials, especially COGS analysis.
  • Socialization: Key stakeholders are included in the development of the story and leveraged when seeking leadership approval.

The session will then apply this framework to a case study.

  • Introduce a hypothetical case study (e.g., conventional/legacy filling line).
  • Summarize regulatory challenges (problem statement).
  • Summarize scope options for upgrading (e.g., upgrade in place, build adjacent, brownfield, do nothing).
  • Run the financials for each option.
  • Deep dive into the pros / cons / decision points for each option.
  • Develop a recommendation.
  • Summarize potential socialization plan
