    Hi All. Not sure if this is the right place for this but I am working in a API manufacturing site and specifically I work on process improvement. I am new to the pharma industry and I am looking for some information regarding the industry standards on check weighing of inbound materials. Currently we weigh every drum of material that gets delivered to the site to verify the weight and I see this as a lot of wastage as historically we can see there is never really an issue? It's a real bottleneck in our goods in process so if anyone has any information about what other sites do that would be fantastic!
