Timothy D. Blackburn, MBA, PE
An initial response to the recommendation to do Pharmaceutical Commissioning is that it is just an additional step – another roadblock to engineering success and something repeated during Qualification. However, effective Commissioning supports engineering and Qualification success. This course addresses efficient Commissioning techniques and synergizing with Qualification. Examples presented are not all definitive, and documentation may exceed or not include certain elements – Commissioning (and Qualification) must be structured for the project. This course contains much of the material basic Commissioning course, but focuses on the Pharmaceutical industry and recent initiatives at Commissioning. The Author has been a leader in the Pharmaceutical industry in the application of documented Commissioning to minimize the regulated paperwork required for Validation/Qualification. He shares his learned experiences in this course in the practical application of commissioning as it specifically relates to Pharmaceutical projects. (Note: See the course entitled “Commissioning Fundamentals and a Practical Approach” for a cost efficient method to apply Commissioning also.)
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
