Modular and Flexible Facility Options - Examples and Case Studies

Modular and Flexible Facility Options - Examples and Case Studies

03/23/2017, 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM

Meeting Room 2


The need to evolve from fixed and rigid to flexible and agile systems did not stop with processes, but now shifted focus to facility designs. Traditionally the facilities build, were product dedicated, large if not convoluted and involved lengthy time-to-run periods. To build such facilities thorough planning is required, especially capacity planning since the inflexibility of the structure does not allow easy scaling of the cleanroom space required. Overall, these type of manufacturing systems do no accommodate the need for flexibility of scale, multi-product purposes, neither the benefits of single-use technology processes. Therefore, new facility systems are being introduced into the industry, ones that can be scaled, easily deployed and moved, if necessary. Prefabricated cleanroom units now replace so-called flexible modular structures, which did not show the necessary flexibility. These units are build off-site in a few weeks and moved into the shell building .
