You want to organize your production according GMP-standards or you fullfill them already ? In addition, you want to understand or control your processes much better ? PAT (Process Analytical Technology) is a systematic approach which got a central point in the "GMP initiative for the 21. century" of the FDA and is also strong supported by the EMEA.

What would you learn ?
The process control requried in the context of PAT causes to huge amount of data. In this course you will learn to design, analyse and watch systematicly production processes, based on measurements of the critical parameters. Our main focus will be the methods, which result in a better understanding of processes if used right. The applications will be illustrated through examples from practice and supplemented with demonstrations of software. In addition, you will have the possibility to apply directly your knowlege by doing many exercises on PC.
