OVERVIEW

You will learn how to take a strategic approach to validating computer systems that are regulated by FDA in a way that will be cost effective and efficient.  The webinar will go through the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology in detail, and we will demonstrate how the SDLC supports Computer System Validation (CSV).

This webinar will help you understand in detail Computer System Validation (CSV) and how to apply the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Methodology when validating computer systems subject to FDA regulations.  This is critical in order to develop the appropriate validation strategy and achieve the thoroughness required to prove that a system does what it purports to do. It also ensures that a system is maintained in a validated state throughout its entire life cycle, from conception through retirement.  We will discuss the phases within the SDLC, and how these form the basis for any CSV project. The importance of the sequence of steps will also be covered.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

An FDA inspection or audit is something to take very seriously, and it’s important to have all computer systems that are regulated by FDA fully validated.  In this FDA Compliance training, you will learn how to validate computer systems in compliance with FDA’s guidelines and also how to maintain them in a validated state.  This will provide you with a level of certainty that you will be able to respond to FDA questions and provide the documentation necessary to defend your approach and body of work.

AREAS COVERED

  • Computer System Validation (CSV) and the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Methodology
  • Good “Variable” Practice (GxP) (Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), Good Clinical Practice (GCP))
  • Validation Strategy that will take into account the system risk assessment process
  • Functional Requirements Specification (FRS) to include detailed needs that are described in a specific and unique way
  • System Design Specification (SDS) that link design to functional requirements
  • Test Planning, including Development of Scenarios, Cases and Scripts (Installation Qualification, Operational Qualification and Performance Qualification)
  • Requirements Traceability Matrix (RTM) that connects the requirements, design and test elements
  • System Acceptance and Release Notification
  • System Retirement steps to close out the life cycle
  • Data Archival to ensure security, integrity and compliance

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Learn about industry best practices related to compliance and computer system validation
  • Learn about strategies for reducing the cost and complexity of compliance with FDA regulations
  • Understand how the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) methodology supports the computer system validation process
  • Learn how to develop the appropriate computer validation strategy, to ensure a good balance of cost vs. risk, thus minimizing both
  • Understand how to effectively document the process of computer system validation, and maintain current information about the various systems in your organization and how they are maintained in a validated state
  • Learn how to gain information about trends in validation, as industry progresses and new best practices emerge
  • Understand some of the key “pitfalls” to avoid when applying the SDLC methodology

SPEAKER

Carolyn Troiano has more than 30 years of experience in computer system validation in the pharmaceutical, medical device, animal health and other FDA-regulated industries. She is currently managing a large, complex data migration, analytics and reporting program at a major financial institution.

During her career, Carolyn worked directly, or as a consultant, for many top-tier pharmaceutical companies in the US and Europe. She was responsible for computer system validation across all GxP functions at a major pharmaceutical company. Carolyn developed validation programs and strategies back in the mid-1980s, when FDA guidelines were first issued. She was an industry reviewer for 21 CFR Part 11, the FDA’s electronic record/electronic signature (ER/ES) regulation. She has taught ER/ES compliance, along with computer system validation and risk management/compliance at a number of Fortune 100 firms. Her experience includes work with FDA-regulated systems used in all areas of research, development, manufacturing, quality testing and distribution.

Carolyn has participated in industry conferences, providing very creative and interactive presentations. She is currently active in the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP), and Project Management Institute (PMI) chapters in the Richmond, VA area. Carolyn also volunteers for the PMI’s Educational Fund as a project management instructor for non-profit organizations.
