Good Manufacturing Practice

Good Manufacturing Practice Audits Made Simple

Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) covers production from start to finish—from the materials, premises, and equipment, to the training and hygiene of staff. It is a big process, and the regulators that govern GMP expect detailed, written procedures for each process that could affect the quality of your finished product. 

The above illustration shows a typical GMP audit process. 

The above illustration shows that Jim is using paper systems for his GMP audits. He carries his clipboard and camera around, manually checking and recording production lines, broken objects, and cool room temperatures. He searches for his workers to explain and assign corrective actions, and hopes they'll follow through. Once complete, he files his paper and tries to remember the details needed to write the report he'll talk management through the next day. All photos are uploaded into a folder on his computer for future reference.

The exacting details can be hard to keep track of if you’re not using the latest digital technology. Using old paper methods to track your GMP is time consuming and unnecessary – digital checklists and systems can save you time, encourage compliance and create rich data sets that will help build even better manufacturing processes.

 

The above illustration shows a much simpler process of doing GMP audits with digital checks.

Alana, on the other hand, has moved to the digital age. All the inspection gear she needs is on her phone to check production and document issues, including Bluetooth thermometer integration. She can write, speak, snap pictures, and assign actions on the spot. From her inspection, she can instantly send and store professional reports.
