Hello Guys

I have a basic question regarding validation process.
I am about to validate a PCBA manufacturing process.
we manufacture these PCBAs in a 50 PCBAs tablet.
currently my validation procedures is 4,4,5. (3 batches)
when I am validate am I suppose to validate exactly the amount I'm gonna manufacture day to day? meaning if my basic manufacturing unit is a table of 50 PCBAs must I validate 50,50,50 instead of 4,4,5? (If I manufacture in the SMT machine 4 cards out of those 50 and throw away he rest of the tablet i use a certain program, but if I manufacture the whole 50 I use another program hence if I validate the process using one programming to the smt machine but on a daily basis I use another programming - 50 cards in a run, then I actually did not validate the actual process).

regulatory IF i validate a process where i manufacture batches of 50 at a time (tablet) that what I have to do on regular manufacturing? I.E I am no allowed to manufacture 20 out of the 50 table?

Hope I managed to be clear

thanks!!!:agree::applause::bigwave::eek::thanks:

Hi,

I'm unable to decipher the information on the validation. You state that

Currently my validation procedures is 4,4,5. (3 batches)
when I am validate am I suppose to validate exactly the amount I'm gonna manufacture day to day? meaning if my basic manufacturing unit is a table of 50 PCBAs must I validate 50,50,50 instead of 4,4,5?

How did you arrive 4,4,5 batches to validate?
Are you validating entire process at once? As you state that based on different batch orders on a given day, you do it differently? Did I understand your statement correctly?

Are you talking about the there 4 boards in a panel?

I'd like to help you, but its unclear on how you are validating?

Can you make it more clear, so that its easy to post the reply?

Thanks,
Vikram
