FDA Validation


Software validation within highly regulated life sciences systems environments can be a daunting task – especially for transaction-oriented systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP). Armanino understands the unique challenges facing life sciences companies and offers a comprehensive solution to facilitate the development of mandatory software validation deliverables in an easy-to-use toolkit.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Validation Toolkit for Process Industries for Microsoft Dynamics AX delivers best practices at your fingertips. It offers unprecedented services, coupled with validation starter templates, protocols and scripts, to let pharmaceutical manufacturers or other life sciences companies quickly and cost-effectively navigate the complicated validation process.

Key Enhancements offered by the FDA Toolkit include:

  • Support for Latest Good Automated Manufacturing Practice (GAMP) 5 methodology
  • Updated Validation Master Plan (VMP) including risk assessment
  • Support for a hosted or virtual systems environment, or installation directly on your servers
  • Support for medical devices (discrete processes)

  • Enhanced “Introduction to FDA Validation” video delivered on DVD Includes validation verification videos that show recorded session running test scripts
  • Toolkit delivered in convenient DVD format

Complete Validation Processes Quickly

Companies that manufacture medical devices, pharmaceuticals or other regulated substances must demonstrate that they can meet the consistent manufacturing, safety and tracking standards required by law. Armanino Consulting’s FDA Validation Toolkit includes:

  • a “how to guide” for project management, risk assessment, tracking and managing validation activities
  • templates for completing the documentation required by the U.S. FDA
  • documentation for a vendor audit of Process Industries for Microsoft Dynamics AX
  • consulting services to assist the manufacturer in completing the validation process 

Capture Standard Information to Reduce Time and Effort

The U.S. FDA and other similar regulatory agencies worldwide validate a manufacturer’s implementation and intended use of a vendor’s software rather than the software itself, forcing each life sciences company to conduct a complete validation process based on risk. The software, documentation and services provided in Armanino Consulting’s FDA Validation Toolkit can help reduce the time and effort required by capturing as much of the standard information as possible from common validation practices and templates.
