|Nova Weigh has 20
years' experience in producing software for the process industries.
Standard, well-proven software modules are used to produce the system to meet your requirements.
Software is available for PLCs, PCs and programmable weight indicators, and can be produced to meet the stringent requirements of the FDA for pharmaceutical industries.
|Some manufacturing processes, particularly in the pharmaceutical
industries, require licensing by a regulatory authority such as the Food and Drugs
Administration (USA) or the Medicines Inspectorate (UK). Before a licence is granted, a
validation procedure must be completed. This procedure covers all aspects of the
buildings, equipment and processes. The validation of an automated control system is one
stage of this procedure.
It is the responsibility of the user to produce a validation plan and a quality plan. The validation plan may require the creation of a number of protocols:
In line with a Life Cycle Model approach, Nova Weighs involvement with the system does not terminate with the successful completion of agreed tests. For the duration of the operation of the system, the hardware and software must be the subject of a maintenance programme. This will cover the provision of a support organisation with appropriate maintenance records, including calibration verification, and change control procedures.
