Lean Validation as Part of Standard OSIsoft PI System Deployments at J&J
Within the regulated industries, the OSIsoft PI System can be considered a GMP critical application. In the past, OSIsoft PI Systems were validated according to each site’s local procedures. This presentation will explain how J&J came to a common and lean validation approach across the organization, based on industry and computer system validation standards. It will also discuss how they gradually implement the approach as part of a standardized deployment of the OSIsoft PI System.
