Maximize efficiency and effectiveness in your validation projects by utilizing multi-disciplinary teams. The term “Validation,” as used in this white paper, will be taken to mean either or both activities of Qualifying systems and facilities as fit-for-purpose (IQ/OQ/PQ) and the Process Validation of manufacturing processes and procedures (PQ or PV).

Lean project management strategies incorporate subject matter experts (SMEs) in cross-functional teams. For example, commissioning equipment with computerized functions needs to be validated by the computer systems validation SME and the commissioning and qualification validation SME. This white paper discusses some considerations for using a multi-disciplinary team approach to sitewide or corporate Validation project planning, oversight, execution, and approval.

Multi-disciplinary teams for GxP

The establishment and management of multi-disciplinary validation teams are crucial to managing changes in the modern Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical industries. These teams are typically responsible for the review, planning, and approval of changes (additions of or modifications) to equipment, facilities, systems, and processes with the potential to impact product quality. Project Management can significantly impact project quality, cost, and time through the decisions and mechanisms they choose to implement. Third-party resources and service firms can help with current developments in industry practices and standards and have the potential to more than pay for themselves in terms of money and time saved.
