About The Event

 This failure investigation and root cause analysis training will present a repeatable methodology / defined systems, and simple tools that you can use to trace problems to their source and root cause. Attendees will get knowledge on Flow charts, Cause and Effect Diagrams, the 5 Whys, and other statistical tools to accomplish FI/RCA.

Why Should You Attend:

Closed-loop CAPA mandates a repeatable, systematic Failure Investigation and Root Cause Analysis. The FDA has faulted companies repeatedly for failure to identify, systematically investigate, resolve, and then verify/validate and monitor for reslution of the key underlying problem -- basically an inability to define, locate and resolve the basic problem(s) or root cause(s) -- using a repeatable system. Consequently, the most important area audited by the FDA is CAPA -- it assures the FDA that company is in compliance without the Agency constantly auditing it. However, one of the most cited 483 observation is failure to resolve the key underlying problem and close out CAPA documents in a timely manner -- basically an inability to define, locate and resolve the basic problem(s) or root cause(s). FI and RCA also play a major part in sucessful V&V and other CGMP activities. Regular, defined, systematic use of a few simple but powerful tools can contribute greatly to reduction of product liability, cost reduction efforts, less chance of recalls, and an improved bottom line.

Accurate and thorough Failure Investigation and Root Cause Analysis is a key to sucessful CAPA program. It is also key to many other important cGMP activities -- Non-conformance / OOS resolution, Complaint Handling, Adverse Event Reporting and Resolution, other Verification and Validation activities, Audit corrective and preventive actions, et al. Simple tools and work flow are not understood, diseminated, and used, consistently. Flow charts, Cause and Effect Diagrams, the 5 Whys, and other statistical tools will be presented and discussed as simple and effective means to accomplish FI/RCA. A breakdown in FI/RCA results in the product failures, liability issues, scrap / waste / fall off, and needless recalls, which we see listed on the FDA's website daily. Avoid a "shoot from the hip" approach. Define, then attack, and resolve root problems / causes, not just symptoms, using repeatable, systematic, SOP-defined methods as part of a "closed-loop" CAPA system, and basic CGMP compliance.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • U.S. FDA's Expectations
  • FI and RCA's Role in a Proactive and Compliant CGMP System
  • Accurate Description with A Sample Failure Investigation Template
  • 7 Powerful Tools for Root Cause Analysis
  • Investigation Detail - Root or Probable Cause
  • Impact Analysis and Action -- Often neglected but of major importance
  • Correction, Corrective Action, Preventive Action
  • Effectiveness -- Determining and Monitoring
  • Institutionalize vs "Entropy"

Who Will Benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all regulated companies that need a repeatable methodology / defined systems, and simple but powerful tools for "closed loop" CAPA, including proper failure investigation / root cause analysis and making the fix permanent. This applies to companies in the Medical Device, Diagnostic, Pharmaceutical, and Biologics fields. The employees who will benefit include:

  • Senior management
  • Regulatory Affairs
  • Quality Assurance
  • Production
  • R&D and Engineering
  • All personnel tasked with problem solving
