Verification vs Validation



This webinar will focus on the difference between Verification vs Validation and how can we use them to improve the bottom line.

If Verification &Validation are done right, the process and product should always conform unless there is an obvious equipment malfunction or human error. If Design Verification &Validation are done right and only conforming product is released, the customer should be completely satisfied and sales will be predictable. From Management’s POV, that’s not too much to expect for the time and investment allocated to it. However, reality is often much different. Validated processes fail for no obvious reason, causing back orders, loss of customer satisfaction and missed sales predictions. This talk will focus on the differences between these concepts and how to use the information gained to minimize future problems.

Verification and validation activities account for a significant amount of time and resources in the final stages of new product development, and Management’s expectation is that this investment will eventually pay off in terms of product conformance and increased sales. This talk will shed light on the issues behind disappointing studies and how to overcome them.

Participants should have some previous experience with verification and validation activities, but otherwise, this talk is applicable to all levels, especially management, as it covers underlying principles in a simplified format.

Areas to be Covered:

Important definitions and related terms
What these terms have in common & how are they different
Underlying issues that cause validated processes to fail
Requirements for verification and validation and assuring accurate results
Using verification and validation data to achieve process control
