Introduction

Prior to computer systems and databases, managers and quality personnel created complex visual numbering schemes, cross-referencing methods and complex filing systems for purposes of retrieval and control.  These grew over the years into the extremely complex and convoluted systems we find today throughout the life sciences, including the medical device industry.

As is often the case, automation and computers do not always replace the legacy methods, policies, and rules that were necessary with manual and paper systems but are now obsolete.

Unfortunately, that is the case in the overwhelming majority of medical device companies.  The benefits of automation and information retrieval systems are not fully realized due to the legacy policy constraints that still hamper them.

In this webinar, we apply the Theory of Lean documents and its corollary Theory of Lean Configuration to present a fresh approach to following 21 CFR Part 820.

Area Covered In The Webinar

  • Brief introduction to Lean Documents and Lean Configuration
  • Quality System Regulation, 21 CFR Part 820, and ISO 13485 as these apply to design control documents
  • Basic functions found in a life sciences manufacturing plant
  • Key types of controlled documents and records for manufacturing
  • Quality Management System (QMS) elements controlled via documentation
  • Bringing it all together

Why should you attend?

  • If you are constantly struggling to create, manage, and maintain all of the information found in controlled documents, all of which are often redundant, repetitive, and clustered together in an awkward manner, this webinar is something that will give you a different perspective and a very different approach that you can use.
  • If your design and manufacturing resources are spending too much time on documentation and not enough time on actual design and manufacturing you as a manager need to be looking for ways to simplify their work.
  • This webinar presents a new approach yet is based on solid principles and proven practices.

Who Will Benefit

Managers, Supervisors, Directors, and Vice-Presidents in the areas of:

  • R&D
  • Manufacturing Engineering
  • Design Assurance
  • Quality Assurance
  • Operations
  • Document Control
