As technology advances, human errors in manufacturing become more and more visible every day: they account for more than 80 percent of process deviations in pharmaceutical manufacturing.

This workshop explains how small improvements in manufacturing systems and employee training can deliver big results.

In addition to an analysis of how and why errors occur, this workshop features multiple interactive exercises allowing attendees to work in small groups of colleagues to tackle common manufacturing problems.

Attendees will learn:

  • The basics of human error — Participants will learn how human errors intersect with manufacturing regulations. Participants will also be provided with an overview of the most commonly found errors on the manufacturing floor and what investigators look for during an inspection. Participants will be break into groups and describe the most common human errors in their facilities. The workshop will then reconvene and break-out group leaders will describe what they uncovered. A list of the most common problems will be tallied to help focus the discussion.
  • The factors that drive human error— Participants will learn why administrative and management systems factor so prominently into deviations and non-conformances. Attendees will also learn how common day-to-day communication gaps contribute to human error. Participants will also be given a list of the various internal and external factors that lead to human error.
  • CAPA — Attendees will be taught how to determine when human error reduction is the key to a successful solution and FDA compliance. Broken into small groups, each group will be asked to determine if a CAPA solution is effective and if human error prevention related provisions will satisfy the FDA.

Attendees will finish up the workshop brainstorming the root causes for real cases with other attendees. Getting to the true root cause of an error is commonly described as the hardest part of reducing errors.

  • QA/QC directors and managers
