Computer system validation

Ensure your computer systems are in control and fit for purpose

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) requires that you build and operate manufacturing processes that are suitable for purpose, that will consistently deliver therapeutic products that meet their pre-defined quality attributes.  This requires that you validate and maintain an ever-increasing number of computer systems that support your GMP processes.  IT departments are resource challenged to maintain existing systems, transition legacy systems, deploy and support new systems.

Installing and maintaining computer systems in regulated environments requires a structured efficient approach throughout the life-cycle from vendor selection, to configuration and acceptance testing through to go live and change management (patching, upgrading, configuration changes).  Kneat is a game changer for computer system validation (CSV).  The Kneat CSV e-solution delivers compelling productivity, cycle time and compliance improvements across the entire life-cycle.  All your CSV activities can be digitized, streamlined and centralized corporate wide.
