The GAMP® Good Practice Guide: Manufacturing Execution Systems is one in a series of GAMP® Good Practice Guides, which help to narrow interpretation of regulatory standards for improved compliance and quality, efficiency, and cost reductions.
The main body of the Guide covers an approach to achieving control and compliance, project phase, and the operation phase. Appendices in the Guide cover a range of MES topics including coordination of compliance, project, and operations activities; planning, domain approach, and developing an implementation strategy; system selection; system integration; human and workflow considerations; compliant WIP materials management; configuration management; and standards and models.
A one-day seminar, GAMP® Good Practice Guide: Manufacturing Execution Systems - Guide Launch http://www2.ispe.org/annualmeeting2009/education/609.cfm, will be held at the ISPE 2010 Washington Conference on 8 June in Washington DC, USA. In addition to receiving a free copy of the Guide, attendees will learn how a company can apply a functional strategy to specify, verify, and manage all relevant system/application capabilities through the ISA hierarchy instead of a single-application approach.
