Lean validation is derived from the lean manufacturing process. Simply put, lean manufacturing is the process of eliminating waste, minimizing risk and driving quality, efficiency and compliance. A common misconception is that lean is suited only for manufacturing. This is not true. Lean principles may be applied to any process that would benefit from the elimination of wasteful activities and process improvement. Lean validation thus is not a tactic or a cost reduction program, but a way of thinking and acting for today's validation team. The figure below depicts the overall strategy for lean validation.
As highlighted above, lean validation requires automation. ValidationMaster™ powers lean validation and is designed to facilitate automation throughout the process. The system manages the full lifecycle of validation processes and is designed to eliminate traditional manual, paper-based processes.
