The pharmaceutical industry is under growing pressure to increase efficiency, both in production and in process development. This paper will discuss the use of Process Systems Engineering (PSE) methods in pharmaceutical process development, and searches for answers to questions such as: Which PSE methods can be applied readily? Where is more method development needed? The paper is illustrated with a series of short examples taken from the literature and ongoing research projects.
