A System Developer's Approach to Validation

by Christopher L. Gent Pharmacia Corporation Validation is required for computer systems used to create, modify, maintain, archive, retrieve, or transmit data intended for submission. To ensure that the QA/QC and the IT departments speak the same language, a system developer will build documented evidence that a system's functionality has been tested, performs as specified, and generates reproducible results.
