QUALITY

Software design and quality control is managed with the use of Good Automated Manufacturing Practices (GAMP). The concepts ensure project tasks are managed and controlled in an effective manner.

Good Automated Manufacturing Practices embrace the following concepts to manage the projects Process Control System deliverables:

  • Defined Life Cycle Model

  • Planning

  • Risk & Impact Assessment

  • User & Supplier Partnerships

  • Specifications

  • Traceability

  • Design Review

  • Formal Testing and Verification of Specification

  • Documented Evidence
     

There are significant benefits from the replication of equipment control functions. The duplication of equipment functionality with minimal code changes, significantly reducing the time needed to implement subsequent projects. A modular approach tends to reduce software complexity and leads to easier commissioning, maintenance, troubleshooting and training.
