This seminar will help you understand in detail Computer System Validation (CSV) and how to apply the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Methodology when validating computer systems subject to FDA regulations. This is critical in order to develop the appropriate validation strategy and achieve the thoroughness required to prove that a system does what it purports to do. It also ensures that a system is maintained in a validated state throughout its entire life cycle, from conception through retirement. We will discuss the phases within the SDLC, and how these form the basis for any CSV project. The importance of the sequence of steps will also be covered.

Course Objective

  • Discuss the best practices necessary to ensure all systems are validated appropriately
  • Learn how to develop the appropriate computer validation strategy, to ensure a good balance of cost vs. risk
  • Understand how to effectively document the process of computer system validation, and maintain current information about the various systems in your organization and how they are maintained in a validated state
  • Learn how to gain information about trends in validation, as industry progresses and new best practices emerge
  • Understand some of the key pitfalls to avoid when applying the SDLC methodology
  • Q&A


Course Outline

Topics covered include: 
  • Computer System Validation (CSV)
  • System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) Methodology
  • Good Variable Practice (GxP) (Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), Good Clinical Practice (GCP))
  • Validation Strategy that will take into account the system risk assessment process
  • User Requirements Specification (URS) to include high-level needs in language familiar to the user
  • Functional Requirements Specification (FRS) to include detailed needs that are described in a specific and unique way
  • System Design Specification (SDS) that link design to functional requirements
  • Test Planning, including Development of Scenarios, Cases and Scripts
  • Installation Qualification (IQ)
  • Operational Qualification (OQ)
  • Performance Qualification (PQ) (also referred to as User Acceptance Testing (UAT))
  • Requirements Traceability Matrix (RTM) that connects the requirements, design and test elements
  • System Acceptance by the user or owner of the system
  • System Release Notification once it is put into a production environment
  • System Retirement steps to close out the life cycle
  • Data Archival to ensure security, integrity and compliance

Speaker: Carolyn Troiano,

Carolyn Troiano has more than 30 years of experience in computer system validation in the pharmaceutical, medical device, animal health, tobacco and other FDA-regulated industries. She is currently an independent consultant, advising companies on computer system validation and large-scale IT system implementation projects. During her career, Carolyn worked directly, or on a consulting basis, for many of the larger pharmaceutical companies in the US and Europe. She developed validation programs and strategies back in the mid-1980s, when the first FDA guidebook was published on the subject, and collaborated with FDA and other industry representatives on 21 CFR Part 11, the FDAs electronic record/electronic signature regulation. Carolyn has participated in industry conferences, providing very creative and interactive presentations. She is currently active in the PMI, AITP, and RichTech, and volunteers for the PMIs Educational Fund as a project management instructor for non-profit organizations.
