(115b) Challenges and Best Practices in the Commercialization of Polycarbonate Copolymers
The Innovative Plastics SBU of SABIChas successfully commercialized multiple polycarbonate co-polymer products over the past decade. As with any scaleup and commercialization activity, there can be formidable challenges in successfully translating new products/processes to the manufacturing scale. The framework of Design for Six Sigma (DFSS) incorporates many best practices which mitigate challenges including:
- Effectiveness of cross-functional team interactions including communications
- Scaleup risk management
- Project management and control
- Translation to the manufacturing plant
In this presentation the use of selected DFSS tools will be reviewed with examples of how they contribute to successful commercialization.
