Validation of computer systems is a regulatory requirement within the life sciences. “How much to validate” is one of the biggest challenges validation teams face. The struggle to balance time and available resources with compliance requirements often leads to insufficient testing and/or project overruns, which in turn can lead to significant regulatory and safety risks. One way to avoid these issues is to employ a common risk-prevention tool called Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA). FMEA will help you focus on your most significant risks, allowing you to more efficiently and effectively validate your computer systems.
Professionals who attend this training will be equipped to present FMEA as a tool for scoping computer systems validation efforts to ensure that resources are focused on the most critical areas of risk. At its core, FMEA is designed as a methodology to evaluate a system, design, process, or service for possible ways in which failures can occur. As such, it is a perfect tool to validate computer systems and ensure compliance. This course will demonstrate how an FMEA can be used to scope computer validation efforts on the most critical business and compliance items.
By attending this interactive, 90-minute online session, you will…
- Understand what Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA) is and how to conduct one
- Apply FMEA to customized and “commercial-off-the-shelf” (COTS) systems within a GxP environment
- Develop software validation strategies that incorporate FMEA as a tool to identify critical compliance items while keeping resource constraints in mind
- Use FMEA to continuously monitor and improve your systems
