We will discuss the importance of applying industry best practices when managing projects involving development, configuration, implementation, testing, validation and other System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) phases for any IT system used in an FDA-regulated environment (i.e., the system “touches” product during the manufacturing, testing or distribution process). Such a system must be validated in accordance with FDA guidelines for computerized systems and documented accordingly.
This course will describe the best practices for managing such a project, including “who” should be responsible for tasks, “how” the documentation should be accomplished, and “what” specific criteria will be used to define success. FDA guidelines are very specific in terms of how this is to be done.

- Project planning, execution and management concepts
- GxP Predicate Rules

Carolyn Troiano has more than 30 years of experience in computer system validation in the pharmaceutical, medical device, animal health, tobacco and other FDA-regulated industries. She is currently an independent consultant, advising companies on computer system validation and large-scale IT system implementation projects.
During her career, Carolyn worked directly, or on a consulting basis, for many of the larger pharmaceutical companies in the US and Europe. She developed validation programs and strategies back in the mid-1980s, when the first FDA guidebook was published on the subject, and collaborated with FDA and other industry representatives on 21 CFR Part 11, the FDA’s electronic record/electronic signature regulation.
Carolyn has participated in industry conferences. She is currently active in the PMI, AITP, and RichTech, and volunteers for the PMI’s Educational Fund as a project management instructor for non-profit organizations.
