From Feasability to the URS – Involvement Right from the Start – Focus on Measurement Devices Makes Sense

In the very first steps, you decide how the project will be structured, depending on your own resources, timeline and cost situation. Will you integrate small units? Bundle packages? Cooperate with a general engineering company? Go for a turnkey project?

The costs for measurement instruments in a typical life sciences project usually take 5% to 7% of the project costs. In operation, the costs for maintenance and calibration of measurement devices are typically dramatically higher. That’s why the early involvement of an instrumentation specialist helps to avoid future problems and thus save you time and money.

Efficient support, which follows all the steps of the project life cycle, assists in shortening time-to-market – in other words, it allows the earlier commencement of production. An experienced Endress+Hauser project team guarantees reliable and on-time implementation. Together we design solutions which are tailor-made for individual needs and based on our latest innovations, making your processes more reliable.


Taking these facts into consideration, the best solution is to bundle up instrumentation from a qualified and well accepted specialist in the market. Interface risks are minimised by this kind of 'one-stop-shop’. Dealing with a single supplier allows professional project management from the start to the delivery logistics.

But this is not the only way where we can help. We can support you on the definition of the URS and DS. In particular, together we can establish the maximum authorised deviations. We also can point out the critical measurement points and then anticipate the long term maintenance and calibration actions in accordance with this criticality. There is no better way for succeeding in such a highly regulated environment than good communication. This contributes to the best possible results and highlights our commitment to customer satisfaction. Our experienced solutions teams and specialists, trained on the GxPs in different countries, will be happy to discuss your needs with different departments (qualification, engineering, metrology, process, quality, etc.)
