The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provided a guidance for industry in 2011 that has established a framework for process validation in the pharmaceutical industry. This guidance, titled "Process Validation: General Principles and Practices," consists of a three-stage process. The three stages are Process Design, Process Qualification, and Continued Process Verification. Although the guidance was established for the pharmaceutical industry, it also provides a useful framework for other industries. This course focuses on how to establish a systematic approach to implementing statistical methodologies into a process development and validation program consistent with the FDA guidance. This course teaches the application of statistics for setting specifications, assessing measurement systems (assays), using design of experiments (DOE), developing a control plan as part of a risk management strategy, and ensuring process control/capability. All concepts are taught within the three-stage product cycle framework defined by requirements in the process validation regulatory guidance documents. Analyses in this course use the point-and-click interface of JMP software from SAS.
Learn how to
- apply statistics to set specifications and validate measurement systems (assays)
- develop appropriate sample plans based on confidence and power
- implement suitable statistical methods into a process validation program for each of the three stages
- (Stage 1, Process Design) use risk management tools to identify and prioritize potential critical process parameters; and define critical process parameters and operating spaces for the commercial manufacturing process using design of experiments (DOE)
- (Stage 2, Process Qualification) assess scale effects while incorporating large (pilot and/or commercial) scale data; develop process performance qualification (PPQ) acceptance criteria by characterizing intra- and inter-batch variability using process design data and batch homogeneity studies; and develop an appropriate sampling plan for PPQ
- (Stage 3, Continued Process Verification) develop a control plan as part of a risk management strategy; collect and analyze product and process data; and ensure that your process is in (statistical) control and capable.
Who should attend
Scientists and engineers who need to incorporate statistical concepts into their pharmaceutical process validation quality system
