RBP Exclusive 9 Step Process
- Informal Discovery
- NDA Process
- Formal Discovery
- Development of the Process
- R&D Small Scale Batch
- Manufacturing Small Scale Batch
- Failure Modes & Effects Analysis to Eliminate Risk
- Manufacturing Qualification
- Continuous Improvement
Informal DiscoveryOur first step it to ensure that RBP is the right fit for you. After a brief introductory meeting, many of the following questions will be answered: Is there Mutual Interest? Do we want to work together? Is RBP the right fit?
Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) ProcessOur utmost initial priority is to ensure protection of your intellectual property, trade secrets, and confidentiality. We have a 2-way boilerplate agreement or we are open to using your documents.
Formal DiscoveryThis step is key in ensuring that many of your key requirements can be met:
- Manufacturing requirements
- Regulatory and safety requirements
- Technical requirements (e.g.: analytical testing and methods)
- Packaging requirements
- Storage Requirements
- Shipping requirements
- Supply chain requirements (inventory, safety stock, MIN/MAX points)
Development of the Process (“Batch Ticket” and Instructions and SOPs)This step codifies your requirements to ensure repeatability and reproducibility of every batch:
- Procedures and Order of Addition
- Raw Material and Finished goods lot number traceability
- Packaging requirements
- Regulatory Requirements
R&D Small Scale BatchBefore we every manufacture a batch, our Research and Development (R&D) Team conducts a small scale batch to ensure the “process” meets all of your requirements.
Manufacturing Small Scale BatchAfter a small-scale R&D batch, our manufacturing team will produce its initial small-scale batch to ensure “scale-up” and process documentation are validated. During this step, our Quality Control and/or R&D team will overwatch the process and identify any risks.
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) to Eliminate RiskWe strive to eliminate any residual risks identified during initial small-scale manufacturing. If warranted, we will also execute a “Management of Change” process for your blends.
Manufacturing QualificationAfter risk mitigation and final people/process control implementation, we will qualify the batch after the appropriate amount of blends is produced.
Mutual Refinement (safety, quality, delivery, and cost improvements)We strive to identified, share, and jointly refine any product or process steps that will improve your requirements and objectives. Simply put, consider us a “partner” with the goal of continuous improvement and providing you with the best product and service possible.
Types of Toll Blending
The customer only provides the formula or recipe of the specialized compound. Toll blender takes care of production, quality control, packaging and delivery.
The customer provides the formula, raw materials, packaging, and all specifications. Toll blender provides only the “blending” service based upon a delivery schedule.
A “mix” of the Service and Turnkey models based on customer’s business model and requirements.
