What does validation means?
« on: June 03, 2012, 09:03:00 PM »
Validation is an integral part of quality assurance. The term validation, in manufacturing, often scares people as a very difficult subject. Actually it is nothing much new but an organized approach for establishing GMP. In Pharmaceutical industry, the term validation and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) have become two inseparable concepts and are part of the overall concept of Quality Assurance.

                 Validation may be defined as a systematic study which helps to prove that the systems, facilities and processes perform the job adequately and consistently as specified. To be more precise, a validated operation is one which has been proved to have the potentials for the manufacture of uniform batches meeting the required specifications.

                 The term validation can be applied to the design, engineering, construction, pre-commissioning of new pharmaceutical facilities and microbiological validations.

I think validation is a word which is suitable to the quality assurance in every field. In software development validation means to assure the development of software as per the customer's requirement. It can be defined by a question that is "Are we building the right product?". And another word of quality assurance called "verification" can be defined by another question which is "Are we building the product right?".
