Do you know the boundaries between OQ and PQ? Do you know how to leverage the qualification testing that your Vendor has performed? Does your environment allow for a positive outcome? Is getting started the hard part? Developing the appropriate validation strategy ensures the delivery of a controlled and defendable system with the minimum of effort. Documenting delivery of desired functionality, while ensuring ongoing control, is the primary goal of validation. Operational qualification (OQ) and performance qualification (PQ) are two often implicated constructs in the validation process. Using OQ and PQ with intention can better target the business’ limited risk-mitigation resources and reducing non-value-adding repetition in order to achieve validation’s primary goal.
