Change Control Software Systems to Automate Paper-based Change Control / Change Management Processes in Regulated Environments and Assures Enhancement in Productivity

Dans les environnements soumis à des réglementations FDA et des certifications ISO, les entreprises doivent mettre en place des procédures garantissant l'efficacité des logiciels de contrôle des changements d'assurer la sécurité et la qualité des produits. Les entreprises règlementées soumises aux normes ISO doivent également conserver une documentation détaillée de tous les changements apportés dans un logiciel de contrôle des changements.

Étant donné la multitude de processus concernés par les changements (spécifications de conception, formules, SOP, caractéristiques des matières premières, etc.), les systèmes de contrôle des changements automatisés sont indispensables. Si les logiciels de gestion des changements garantissent la conformité, ils améliorent également considérablement la productivité de l'entreprise.

How can MasterControl Change Control Software Systems Benefit You?

MasterControl change control software is designed to help manufacturers automate and effectively manage every step of the change control process, from submission through actual implementation, verification, and close of project. Here's how MasterControl can ease some of the major challenges with your current change control system.

Disconnected Change Control System Processes

Communication breakdown is likely to happen in companies that rely on disparate tools and processes to manage the quality system. In the context of change control system, this could mean lack of follow-up, late notifications, and tasks not completed by deadline. Suppliers could be making changes without proper and timely notification.

Connected Change Control Software

MasterControl is an integrated change control software that connects different departments with data and processes under a secure and centralized system. This connectivity vastly improves efficiency through automatic task assignment, routing, scheduling, notification, and escalation of incomplete tasks. MasterControl is Web-based, so even suppliers and others outside the company (off-site or traveling employees) who need to participate in change control can do so from virtually anywhere.

Poor Change Control Turn-Around

Timelines are essential in change control systems. A manual system that relies on paper-based documents to generate necessary data and old-fashioned legwork to route and track submissions and change orders is likely to have poor turn-around for change. implementation.

Excellent Turn-Around with a Change Control System

MasterControl integrates and streamlines the entire change control system procedures for faster turn-around. It offers a best-practice form that incorporates priority level (by identifying the change as routine or temporary or emergency), as well as escalations. Plus, reports provide real-time status for all change control tasks.

Training not Integrated with Change Control Software

In a manual system, it is difficult for employees to keep up with all the changes in SOPs, policies, and other critical documentation because the training process is not connected to the rest of the quality system for which MasterControl's Change control software was introducted.

Integrated Training System with Change Control System

Avec MasterControl, le logiciel de contrôle des changements peut être intégré à l'application de formation . Toute modification apportée à un document et exigeant la mise en œuvre d'une nouvelle formation déclenche automatiquement les tâches de formation correspondantes. MasterControl automatise le processus d'examen en ligne et propose une notation automatique.

Change Control Software System Best Practice Form

The change control software system from MasterControl offers a pre-configured, multi-page best-practice form for collecting and tracking data throughout the entire change control process.

  • Une section du formulaire de changement rassemble des informations telles que : description du changement, justification et conséquences. Les documents originaux et révisés peuvent être joints pour une comparaison simplifiée.
  • The initiator of the change can use the same form for multiple changes. For example, the form for a change in a component used in making 10 products can have 10 attachments, greatly streamlining the process.
  • The change control software prompts the initiator to evaluate the change in terms of training requirements, validation, and regulatory requirements prompting risk assessment.
  • The initiator is also asked to classify the change as low, medium, and high. Any high-level change implies great impact on the product and is likely to require regulatory filing.
  • In addition, the change control software system prompts the initiator to categorize the change as routine, temporary or emergency. (A high-level change usually implies great impact on the product and is likely to require regulatory filing.)
  • The form for change management can be customized to meet any unique requirements.

Additional Change Control Software System Features

Other important features provided by the change control software system from MasterControl are outlined below.

Form-to-Form Launching – A change submission form can be launched directly from a Corrective/Preventive Action (CAPA) form, connecting one process to the next. MasterControl streamlines this process and maintains the links, making it easy to see what triggered the change. Relevant information from the CAPA form will be automatically entered into the change submission form, reducing data entry. It also shows the history of the entire process.

Document Approval via Forms – With the change control software from MasterControl, the change submission form and the documents linked to it can be approved all at once, avoiding repetitive steps.

Dependent Routing – Completion of a task can be made dependent on another task to give managers more control and reduce cycle time (by prompting users immediately to begin their next task). An innovative dependency tree graphically illustrates the relationships between dependent processes.

Organisateurs dynamiques – Similaire à l'Explorateur Windows, l'organisateur de MasterControl est un outil convivial et dynamique qui aide les utilisateurs à rechercher des documents et à y accéder rapidement. Toutes les SOP et tous les autres documents associés à une modification en particulier peuvent être regroupés dans le logiciel de contrôle des changements. Les utilisateurs peuvent créer des dossiers virtuels au sein des organisateurs qui récupéreront les documents sur la base de requêtes prédéfinies.

Powerful Reporting Tool – The change control software system can group data together by time interval, then chart the data for a specified range of dates. For example, the number of customer complaints that have led to a change can be totaled for each week and charted for the last year. Data can be summarized at multiple levels, so that change orders can be reported on by product, department, root cause, etc.
