Course start 9:00 am ET each day and ends at 5:00 pm PT.  Lunch is provided.  Course will end by 4:00 pm ET on 3rd day.

This course covers software validation expectations for the whole range of Quality System Software (QSS) including computer systems validation, production/manufacturing automation and control software, quality system process software, and engineering tools.  As you know, our approach is never a one-size-fits-all approach, but we help our clients understand the intent of the regulations to achieve validation methods that are efficient and effective ... and how to correctly articulate alignment with regulations and standards.  We emphasize the critical thinking concept and discuss methods such as process risk analysis as a way to scale and focus the QSS software validation tasks and documentation.
