An Advanced Course on Lean Documents, Lean Configuration, and Document Control - Webinar (Recorded)

  • Webinar

  • 90 Minutes
  • March 2022
  • Compliance Online
  • ID: 5550226

Why Should You Attend:

Controlled documents are the result of a business process, just as a manufacturing process generates a product. A document cannot move ahead if it is waiting for information or if its use is restricted by other documents, just as a product cannot move forward if it is waiting for component parts. Despite the fact that many life science businesses push for lean manufacturing, lean laboratories, and lean operations, they have cumbersome controlled documents and systems that add to operating costs and make it impossible to implement process innovations on a timely basis.

This webinar covers critical topics for integrating lean principles while staying in control and adhering to regulations. It will teach you how to use lean manufacturing principles, the theory of constraints, the DHF, DMR, and DHR, as well as how to design a lean DHF, DMR, and DHR.
