Description : FDA requires that all software in computer systems used in GxP activities must be validated. Validation of computer system software is completely different than validation of device software (embedded software). Validation is more than testing. It is testing plus design control and configuration management.
How to plan and conduct a risk based validation will be explained. Overall risk for computer system is a combination of software complexity and product risk as determined by probability, severity and detectability rankings. Also involved in the risk evaluation is the requirement for purchased software supplier qualification. You’ll learn how to integrate risk based supplier evaluation into the validation process.
Validation Master plan and System Validation Plans will be explained
Testing, based on risk, includes requirements validation and IQ, OQ and PQ. A procedure for each level of complexity and risk will be described.
Areas Covered in the Session :
- Computer system developers
- Systems development engineers
- QA/ QC
- Lab Managers and Analysts
- Production Managers
- Engineering managers
