The complete production process is comprised of several production stages with the purpose of shortening the overall batch production time to its minimum and to decrease the amount of media used to produce a batch.
As an example of a sterile production skid: all processes on this skid are designed in a way that enables them to be run simultaneously in parallel and autonomously. When the production of a part of the skid is over and this part is discharged, this section of the line can be prepared for the production of the next batch. In particular, it means that the unused section of the line can be cleaned and sterilized at the same time, while the remaining production process is continuously running.
Compared to the classical Finish-To-Start concept, such a process considerably saves on the overall batch production time.
