Modern Approaches to Identifying, Understanding and Controlling Variables and Transfer of Knowledge

14 Apr 2014 - 14 Apr 2014 - BioCity Edinburgh, UK

Validated processes can often fail during the transfer stage and result in non-value added investment of resources to troubleshoot the problems. Two main reasons for this are; either the variables which contribute to inconsistencies of the outcome of the procedure have not been identified or controlled adequately or the transfer of knowledge of the process has not been performed effectively.   Whatever the process may be identifying, understanding and controlling variables is a key strategy towards enabling the process to perform to give a consistent outcome during routine use. In the event the process has to be transferred to a new environment, effective knowledge transfer of the process is vital to success.   There are many courses available today which cover the quality by design approach to developing manufacturing processes and analytical procedures so why should you attend this workshop? A process is a process and this one day practical workshop provides the opportunity to learn and apply the basic skills required to investigate, identify and understand variables, to develop a consistent process and transfer the knowledge of that process successfully. Participants will have the opportunity to use quality by design tools and concepts such as the target profile, risk assessment and control strategy to develop a simple process through experimentation and data analysis and then communicate it effectively to others. The skill set and mindset experienced during the classroom team exercises will provide a solid foundation when dealing with industry processes This workshop was designed to provide hands on experience using QbD tools and concepts such as the target profile, risk assessment and control strategy by applying them in the design and development of a simple process. This is achieved through experimentation with a statapult and/or making “Tasty Tablets”. The actual classroom process(s) will depend on the number and the background of attendees.
