Objectives

This Course will show you examples and possibilities which will help you improving your quality performance. You will learn how to use the various tools to drive Continuous Quality Improvement.

Background

The quality of pharmaceutical products is determined by the effectiveness of the Quality System and the people operating it. Unfortunately, many Quality Systems have become complex, slow and bureaucratic.

To remain ‘regulatory compliant’ and to reduce costs, systems and processes must be evaluated and the respective processes simplified and controlled. Important tools in this context are accurate GMP performance measures and analysis, the right Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and tools like the Balanced Scorecard.

Although ICH Q10 is still reproduced in Part III of the EU-GMP Guide, several principles of ICH Q10 have been incorporated into the new Chapter 1of Part I, including continuous and continual improvement.

This course will provide you with practical guidance on:
How to select the right KPIs and Quality Metrics for your Quality System
How to make your Quality System more efficient
How to improve your processes
How to reduce costs

Target Group

QA personnel who wants to improve their quality systems and increase performance and regulatory compliance but also managers and supervisors who are responsible for cost effective and ‘low risk’ quality operations.
