This highly interactive classroom course describes how the GAMP® Good Practice Guide: A Risk Based Approach to GxP Process Control Systems, may be applied to achieve process control systems that are fit for intended use and meet current regulatory requirements. The course covers recommended good practice based on a lifecycle approach for the development and management of process control systems and shows how the principles and concepts of GAMP 5 may be practically applied to process control systems. The course covers both regulated company and supplier quality management systems and the full system life cycle from concept to retirement.
This course shows how appropriate quality risk management and specification and verification activities should be an integral part of the normal system life cycle. Many suppliers of systems now have mature quality management systems and system development, test, and support documentation. The course promotes the leveraging of supplier documentation and activities to avoid unnecessary duplication, cost and waste.
Practical “hands-on” workshop exercises using a wide range of case study examples across differing systems have been included to illustrate the approach covering a wide range of systems from basic equipment and instruments to large, complex, Distributed Control Systems.
The course concentrates on the following features of the system life cycle that are special, or particularly relevant to process control systems including multiple components and multiple suppliers; interfaces to a physical process being controlled in real time, to any degree of embedding with the process equipment and interfaces introduced by phasing of delivery.
This training course is of particular interest to existing and future members of the GAMP Community of Practice (COP).
