5 Executive Summary of Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP) Guide

6 GAMP Scope: “Automated Systems”
Consist of: Hardware - Controlled Functions Software - Network Components Associated Documentation Applies to: Automated Manufacturing Equipment Control Systems Automated Laboratory Systems Manufacturing Execution Systems Computers Running Manufacturing or Laboratory Databases * GAMP’s definition of “Automated Systems” looks at the components that make up a system and applications. * The GAMP definition of Automated Systems is very broad and the practices it advocates may not be applicable to all systems. 2

7 GAMP Purpose “Help suppliers of automated systems to the pharmaceutical industry ensure that systems are developed following good practice and to provide proper documentary evidence that their systems meet the agreed specifications.” The purpose is drawn from the classic definition of validation with a focus on Suppliers employing these processes. 4

8 GAMP Qualification Plan
A Basic Framework for Specification, Design and Testing USER REQUIREMENT PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATION Verifies QUALIFICATION FUNCTIONAL OPERATIONAL SPECIFICATION Verifies QUALIFICATION DESIGN INSTALLATION SPECIFICATION Verifies QUALIFICATION It describes a very timely and orderly flow of information. But in practice... SYSTEM BUILD GAMP 4.0 Figure 6.2

9 Part 1: User Responsibilities
Validation (Master) Plan & System Specific Validation Plan(s) Appendix 6 Supplier Audit Appendix 7 User Requirements Specification Appendix 5 Supplier Education * The Validation Master Plan defines the “big picture” validation activities and is typically approved by management and QA. System Specific Validation Plan is a Validation Plan developed for the Suppliers that defines their responsibilities for specification and testing so that what they do can be utilized as part of the overall validation plan. You will not find the term (System Specific) used widely in GAMP. Its alluded to in the explanations of how documents and specifications should flow and therefore we’ve started using that term more commonly. * According to GAMP, each Supplier should be formally audited to ensure the quality of the services or equipment they supply. The audit should be done prior to seeking equipment/services from the Supplier. * The User is responsible for defining “WHAT” the equipment is suppose to do. It may be written by a third party but should be approved by the User. * The Users are responsible for Supplier education. 9

11 GAMP 4 Goals Software categories developed further
Validation needs to be scaleable Global acceptance Examine the balance of work conducted by pharmaceutical manufacturers and their suppliers. Harmonization of terminology with other industry forums.

12 Best Practice Guides First Wave Calibration
IT Infrastructure: Networks, Desktop, Harmonized Terminology Electronic Records and Signatures

13 Additional Planned Guides
Second Wave Control Systems: including Stand-alone PLC/SCADA/DCS and Packaged Systems”/”Skid Mount Equipment” Supplier Management Analytical Laboratory Equipment Global Systems: ERP, MRPII, LIMS, EDMS

14 Additional Planned Guides
Third Wave Legacy Systems Clinical Systems Medical Devices E-Applications: Web-based software Manufacturing Execution Systems

15 GAMP Summary International guideline. Good starter system.
Continuing to evolve (GAMP4) Basis for Regulatory Agency Training and expectations Good “common ground” for CSV International Alignment This introduction to GAMP has been very brief and fast-paced. It would take 1-2 days to do justice to GAMP and the tools it provides. As an International Guideline, GAMP provides a document that can be used with virtually all Suppliers and Manufacturers. The approaches advocated provide a good common sense approach and, as the JET team discovered, a “common ground” that meets the industry requirements. For a company that is ramping up its internal efforts or considering improving their existing practices, procedures or documentation, GAMP provides some well thought-out information. Finally, GAMP continues to evolve and improve its guidance to Suppliers and Users. JETT hopes to have input on the next revision of the document

26 GAMP Process Control Supplement

27 GAMP Process Control Supplement - Purpose
“This Guide is intended is a supplement to the GAMP Guide, and provides a harmonized overview of the key elements involved in the lifecycle of process control systems, from inception to retirement. As such, the Guide complements the current Baseline Guide on Commissioning and Qualification from ISPE.”

28 GAMP Process Control Supplement - Scope
Systems that control the manufacturing process, and have direct impact on product quality attributes at any stage in the life cycle. Product quality attributes include the identity, efficacy, strength, dosage, quality, disposition, safety, and purity of the product · Systems that process, transfer, or store process information in electronic format

29 GAMP Process Control Supplement - Benefits
· Application and adaptation of the general principles of GAMP 4 to process control systems · A comprehensive overview of current best practice techniques for process control systems · Reduction of the cost and time required to achieve compliant process control systems · Application of good practice to the development and management of projects involving process control systems to meet regulatory expectations · Harmonized approaches for embedded as well as standalone systems · Detailed definition of engineering steps

30 GAMP Process Control Supplement - Benefits
Detailed guidance on the generation of user requirements specifications · Guidance on functionality and structures of process control systems as well as supplier services required · Guidance on the supplier services required for regulated environments · Avoids extensive and time-consuming retrospective validation of legacy process control systems, but provides for the application of a risk based approach, if required · Clarifies the collaboration between user and supplier · Guidance on incorporation of supplier documentation into the user validation documentation Modified and extended supplier audit to ensure compliance of the supplier’s development processes and documentation

32 JETT Benefits Analysis Chris Roerig

33 Benefits of JETT Approach
Provides Standards/Guidelines for Project Lifecycle Deliverables Documentation Approvals Industry Consistency One of the challenges I talked about was a lack of consistency among suppliers. What GAMP does extremely well is to set standards for what’s expected in the User/Supplier relationship. If GAMP is being followed, both sides know what the steps in the project will be… what deliverables and documentation are expected on both sides… and when it’s time to nail down decisions about requirements, design, and function.

34 Benefits of JETT Approach
"Speed to Market" Smoother Procurement Process Smoother Validation Process Shorter Project Schedule Reduced Project Costs Integration Services Validation Re-work 9
