Overview of the webinar

The Theory of Lean Documents is the product of applying lean principles to the creation, design, process, and management of controlled documents typically found in regulated industries.   Just as lean principles challenge traditional process concepts and "push" systems, many traditional document practices are artifacts of a flawed approach.Lean documents presents a fresh departure from these practices, while building upon proven principles.Lean configuration comes from the same principles, utilizing the unique power of software solutions to take over functions that had previously burdened controlled "paper" documents.

Why should you attend?

Do you find yourself constantly struggling to create, manage, and maintain all of the information found in Corrective and Preventive Actions (CAPA) - which is often redundant, repetitive, and chained together in a cumbersome way?  Do you find that your design and manufacturing resources are spending way too much time on documenting the CAPA process and not enough time on actually correcting and preventing systemic issues?  This webinar presents a fresh new approach based upon solid principles and proven practices - as well as an alternative that avoids many of the pitfalls of traditional ways of preparing these documents.
