Northwest Analytics will be a featured speaker at #IFPAC 2017 February 27-March 2, 2017.


As more pharmaceutical and life sciences companies are beginning to integrate tools to meet CPV guidelines, the focus  is on constantly monitoring the most important parameters (Critical Process Parameters- CPPs) effecting product quality (Critical Quality Attributes- CQAs). Although analytics is the key to implementing these projects many challenges exist. Where do you start a CPV initiative? Who should be involved? How do you ensure success?

Northwest Analytics (NWA) has worked with many pharmaceutical and life sciences manufacturers to deploy sustainable CPV  projects, moving them to the predict-and-prevent operational paradigm outlined in the FDA and EMA guidance, enabling companies to identify and correct potential process issues before they impact final product quality.

Jim Petrusich, a senior executive at Northwest Analytics, will drive the discussion around best practices for implementing CPV projects using manufacturing analytics at IFPAC 2017.

A Practical Approach to Continued Process Verification (CPV)
Wednesday, March 1st, 2017, 1:00-5:30P

As one of the event’s featured presenter, Mr. Petrusich’s discussion will focus on how to best implement and leverage CPV initiatives including:

• Using analytics as a means for improving process capability (Cpk);
• Ensuring continuously monitoring of process stability;
• Dealing with data access and alignment issues of CQAs and CPPs;
• The top 5 best practices for a successful deployment; and
• Making real-time analytics sustainable.
