There are various risks and losses in the process from development to industrialization.
The reason for it is that there is a phase difference between the closed part in the early stage of development,
the design / simulation for prototyping and mass production, and the production system aimed at mass production.
Even within the same company, there are double jobs, time lags and omissions due to different departments and positions.
To solve this problem, we introduced a business model for pharmaceutical custom manufacturing in addition to
the development of design and development management regulations.
A manufacturing method that joins from the development stage on the premise of commissioning and connects everything
from lab sample synthesis to pilot scale prototyping and industrialization with investment.
That is IT custom (manufacturing).
We also conduct factory tours, so please check with your own eyes.
Under the design and development management regulations, we introduce a development method (concurrent engineering)
that optimizes the entire development process up to mass production by simultaneously carrying out various operations
from laboratory to industrialization.
Design and development management rules
System from the design and development stage to commercialization
Information sharing across the organization at each stage such as design, trial production and production
At each stage, deliberations on laws and regulations, risks, environment, quality and commercialization make advancement of management decisions
Promote work in parallel without waiting for completion of the previous stage
Feedback of the knowledge of the later stage to the previous process and solve the problem in advance
Taking advantage of these merits, etc., we will make products that can be relied upon by ensuring
both precise work without omissions and high efficiency (shortening processes and reducing costs).
We anticipate and solve problems that customers may have in the future.
Stage 0 development activities
Based on requests from customers, we will support their products from the early stages of development
by investigating manufacturing proposals, legal responses and patent infringement possibilities.
In August 2019, Scifindern user interview was published at JAICI (Chemical Information Association). Publication page
In addition, industrialization studies will be carried out from this stage.
By being involved in the customer's product from the early stages of development,
it will lead to faster development.
1st stage small experiment prototype
Through prototypes such as small experiments, we will confirm the quality and economic efficiency
demanded by customers and conduct industrialization studies aimed at scale-up.
R&D/E of Konishi Chemical
We will conduct preliminary verification based on chemical engineering.

2nd stage Scale-up prototype
Trial manufacture is performed on a scale of 50 to 2000L, and customers evaluate the prototype.
We verify the validity of industrialization process, disaster prevention safety and the need for capital investment.
Stage 3 Trial production of this equipment
This is a stage to examine equipment design, manufacturing cost, and economic
efficiency for the purpose of full-scale production.
For commercialization of customers' products, we will manufacture prototypes
at 4kL to 15kL scale commercial mass production plants.
We propose an optimal production system with a mother factory (headquarters factory)
trained in a cluster of chemical manufacturers and a next-generation smart factory (Fukui factory)
that incorporates the idea of IoT.
Stage 4 Full-scale production
We will carry out regular production activities at full-scale production facilities.
