For a GMP Facility Design – The Process Control checklist consists of 285 design aspects in the life-cycle development, design, construction, testing, qualification and maintenance of facility’s process control and automation. Use the checklist to avoid costly retrofit and project schedule.


Purpose of Process Control/Automation Checklist:

The checklist consists of features & design criteria for a facility component or equipment or process that needs to be considered during the life-cycle phases of development, design, construction, testing, qualification and maintenance. This is to ensure the components in the facility are “fit for intended purpose”, compliant to regulatory/statutory, easy and safe to operate and maintain. The result is to produce quality products.

The checklist:

  • includes topics like Life-cycle; User Requirement/Functional Specification; Testing eg alarm, integration; Hardware & software
  • also include design suggestions which are typical industry standard.
  • ensures that you have covered all expects in the design, construction, testing and maintenance of the process control system.
  • a missed item or design feature can lead to non-compliant, very expensive and cumbersome retrofit plus project delay.
  • some items are built from statutory and regulatory requirements
