All life science businesses are required to maintain their Quality Management System (QMS) processes in a state of control, via controlled documents and objective evidence in the form of records.
Life science manufacturing plants have the additional responsibility to ensure that each and every step of the manufacturing process is controlled by work instructions, SOPs, set-up instructions, equipment maintenance, and support functions, and that evidence of this work is maintained by controlled records.
Prior to computer systems and databases, managers and quality personnel created complex visual numbering systems and separate files for purposes of retrieval and control. These grew over the years into the extremely complex and convoluted systems we find today throughout the life sciences.
As is often the case, automation and
computers do not always replace the legacy policies and rules that were necessary with manual and paper systems but are now obsolete.
Unfortunately, that is the case in 99.9% of all life science companies. The benefits of automation and information retrieval systems are not fully realized due to the legacy policy constraints that still hamper them.
In this webinar, we apply the Theory of Lean documents and its corollary Theory of Lean Configuration to present a fresh approach to these document systems.
Why Should you Attend
If you are constantly struggling to create, manage, and maintain all of the information found in controlled documents, all of which are often redundant, repetitive, and clustered together in an awkward manner, this webinar is something that will give you a different perspective and a very different approach that you can use.
If your design and manufacturing resources are spending too much time on documentation and not enough time on actual design and manufacturing you as a manager need to be looking for ways to simplify their work.
This webinar presents a new approach yet is based on solid principles and proven practices.
