1 Jennifer Nock Innovation to Legacy Manufacturing Jennifer Nock December 2009

2 Jennifer Nock About Me Engineering Product Design BSc Hons July 2007 May 2009 2.5 yrs Jennifer Nock Oct 2008 to Oct 2010

3 Jennifer Nock Agenda 1)About Becton Dickinson 2)Why KTP? 3)The KTP Project Aim 4)Progress & Achievements 5)Benefits 6)Conclusion 7)Question Time

4 Jennifer Nock BD Plymouth Pre-analytical medical industry Manufacture a variety of evacuated blood collection systems – Vacutainer® Manufacture millions of units per week UK and European Market

5 Jennifer Nock Vacutainer Tubes Plastic Tubes Injection Moulded Additive added to tubes Tubes evacuated & sealed with lids Tubes Labelled Tubes Packed & Sterilized Tubes Dispatched Blood Sample Taken

6 Jennifer Nock Why KTP? Strong market position is maintained by continuous production improvements Requirement to understand some specific manufacturing processes in order to improve them. BD lack experience and knowledge to fully understand these processes. These capabilities accessed through KTP Expertise and Resources from: School of Marine Science and Engineering

7 Jennifer Nock The KTP Project Aim To develop, embed and disseminate a culture of applying technological innovation to advance manufacturing and efficiency improvements resulting in sophisticated production systems. Projects Polymer Printing* Complete Additive Dispense In Progress (*amendment from initial project plan)

8 Jennifer Nock Polymer Printing Project Situation Changes to manufacture of tubes could effect ability to print on tubes. Project Aim Confirm business concerns. Identify solution & develop solution to overcome potential issue

9 Jennifer Nock Tube Printing Project Progress Confirmed concerns Business Case to Raise Capital Ready for Implementation New Surface Treatment Technology Identified Potential Solutions - Surface treatment best solution Integration: Tube Handling Technology Solution Costed Completion Report

10 Jennifer Nock Additive Dispense Project Situation Additive to blood ratio critical! Require full understanding of process in order to improve them. Ultimate goal: Zero Defects Project Aim Understand Additive Dispense Process Improve Additive Dispense Process

11 Jennifer Nock Additive Dispense Project Progress Additive added to tubes Early stages of cause investigation Developing offline test rig –Further investigation –Evaluate possible solutions

12 Jennifer Nock Exposure to operations of manufacturing plant & manufacturing issues faced by industry Polymer Printing Research report Potential case study for students Raised awareness of surface treatment technologies Benefits University Associate Company Formal training: KTP and BD Improved skills: presentation, project management Project Management Industrial Experience New contacts in industry Access to university test equipment Additional resource to project engineering department Specialist resource to assist with other projects Solution to polymer printing

13 Jennifer Nock Knowledge Transfer so far… Knowledge transfer limited due to project amendment. Knowledge base taken on more of a supportive role. Have been in the background assisting with hot topic queries.

14 Jennifer Nock Knowledge Transfer Future Knowledge base to be part of a team @ BD More involvement rather than just reporting to. Bring the University and BD together. Culture change to BD with being able to outsource information.

15 Jennifer Nock Conclusion KTP & Projects Challenging Improved skills Developed a solution to safe guard business activity. Majority of benefits from next project Focus is on Knowledge Transfer

16 Jennifer Nock Acknowledgements Project Manager – Mandy Bowden Company Supervisor – Larry Stockman Academic Supervisors – Neill Hughes, and Dr Peter Dyson Colleagues at BD Plymouth

17 Jennifer Nock Any Questions…? Plastic Tubes Injection Moulded Additive added to tubes Tubes evacuated & sealed with lids Tubes Labelled Tubes Packed & Sterilized Tubes Dispatched Blood Sample Taken
