Today's FDA inspectors focus like lasers on testing methods … how they are justified statistically and the results.

They want to make sure manufacturers are applying the right statistical tools and methods, and that they are using them correctly, in a proper way.

Device manufacturers understand that they must answer the two key design verification and validation questions: did they make the product right and did they make the right product?

And manufacturers know that testing is the only way to effectively answer them.

Finally, the test samples must demonstrate that the results can be reasonably applied to larger production runs and maintain safety.

But how many units should be tested? And when manufacturers decide, can they statistically justify that decision?

These questions have baffled devicemakers for years. The answers are … well, it depends.

And that's why, on Aug. 27, design control statistical expert Steve Walfish will lead an FDAnews On-Demand webinar to help devicemakers understand exactly what it does depend on. During his presentation, attendees will learn:

  • The requirements for statistical techniques and how they impact design controls processes (21 CFR 820.30(f)(g))
  • What types of requirements lend themselves to statistics in verification and validation (hypothesis testing, confidence interval, design of experiments)
  • How variance in the population can impact the sample size necessary to establish objective evidence
  • The relationship between risk and sample size (i.e., risk to patient — critical major, minor)

Attendees will also gain the fundamental knowledge needed to determine sample size in statistical testing. (For example, a sample size of 3 is not sufficient without justification.)

In addition, Mr. Walfish will cover the following:

  • Why it is critical to understand the different compliance requirements for design verification and design validation — and how to understand those differences
  • Leveraging statistical methods that work best to satisfy the FDA’s requirements for defensible methods
  • How to use proven methodologies to avoid too small — or too large — sample sizes. (Too small and it might not be accurately determining risk; too large and devicemakers could be unnecessarily wasting time and money.)
  • How sample size should optimally be proportional to risk (business and patient)
  • Why it’s pointless to try and predict the personal focus of different auditors — and why the real foundation for a successful audit is being able to produce a defensible program based on visible standards

So, clear the calendar for Aug. 27, 2014. Attendees will learn proven tactics and tools to develop a strong statistical methods program — and a thorough understanding of what FDA auditors look for when they come for an inspection.

Please note; this webinar has been previously recorded and no questions will be taken during the presentation. Attendees may listen to the recording at their convenience on Aug. 27.
