Pharmaceutical industries develop, produce and market drugs for use as medications. All pharmaceutical manufacturers are directed to produce in a high optimization environment to increase productivity and ensure product of high quality level. A design process was performed on the compression manufacturing area of a pharmaceutical industry in order to maximize the space to achieve the current production demand, improve the manufacturing process layout increasing the efficiency and the safety on the compression process. DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) methodology was used as a problem solving tool to identify how to optimize the space. Some of the tools used on this project include brainstorming and decision matrix to determine the best layout alternative to improve the work environment. Key Terms - Compression Machines, DMAIC, Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE), Tablet Monitoring Equipment.
