There are a number of new technologies with promise to help enhance high technology, life sciences and health care organization R&D, and Commercial Operations performance. Evaluating a new concept or new technology? You probably need to perform a rigorous economic justification analysis. We have done this for a large number of companies and for many types of projects. 

Technology Assessment is one of our transformation services and includes:

  • Technical Evaluation: Evaluating a technology for technical merit. Highlighting its strengths and weaknesses and comparing it with other alternatives.
  • Cost-Benefit Analysis: Developing economic analyses for a technically justified projects. Computations of Return on Investment, Payback Periods, Net Present Values and Life Cycle Impact.

Cost Benefit Analysis

Light Pharma uses and builds powerful economic models to help management decision-making around technology. Product and process life cycle models have been developed to provide an economic basis for decision making. We routinely compute Return on Investment (ROI), Net Present Value (NPV) and Payback Period type analysis for new technologies. Such lifecycle and economic analysis is a critical prerequisite that helps in: 

  • Deciding Whether to Move Forward with a New Project or Technology Concept
  • Proving Economic Justification For a Technically Sound Project
  • Yearly Budget Planning
  • Developing an Overall Economic or Business Case for Transformation

Our close relationships with academia allow us to leverage the state-of-the-art in technology, finance theory and economic modeling.
