In every work environment, especially in the area of Life Science – which covers the pharmaceutical, pharmacochemical, cosmetic, chemical, food, sanitist, veterinary and health products – there are always numerous processes. Mapping and structured them, making sure that each of your steps includes good quality practices is essential to the success of the company.
The quality assurance in operations adds value to the brand and contributes positively to the growth of the business, as a consequence of the delivery of products and services that exceed the expectations of customers, seeking to retain and retain them.
For those who seek technical and practical improvement and want to know in which areas the quality professional can act, know that there are several work fronts. Today, for example, the customer experience is highly valued and, therefore, the quality professional will have the role of monitoring and certifying good practices in the processes inherent in the journey of consumers of a company.
The quality professional can also contribute to the more efficient enterprise systems and comply with the regulations and standards established in the sector.
Training and certification
There is no doubt that, as in any other area, the professional should seek training and certification. Some of the positions that this professional can play are:
1. Quality Auditor
Systematically evaluates all operations of the company, making sure that they comply with the previously established business plan, and that good implementation practices are contemplated to ensure compliance with pre-established parameters.
2. Reliability Engineer
You are responsible for optimizing the level of trust of a system or product. For this, the professional estimates risk in order to prevent eventual failures, which may occur in the organization’s processes, especially those that threaten to interrupt them – such as damage due to human failures or unexpected equipment stoppage.
3. Technical Manager
He is a professional who is accountable to regulatory agencies about the quality and compliance with all the requirements of the Health Surveillance. This professional acts with autonomy to intervene on the processes and products, if they impact quality, safety or legislation.
4. Quality Assurance Analyst
Its role is to structure all the documentation of a management system, in order to adapt it to industry-specific standards and quality standards. This includes creating implementation processes and flows.
5. Quality Control Analyst
Here, the professional can act in the analysis of finished products and in the validation of raw materials, analytical methodology, water analysis, etc. This area focuses on laboratory, chemical physicist or microbiologist areas.
6. Process Validation and Cleaning Professional
This professional requires extensive knowledge in manufacturing processes to ensure that production between batches is repeatable, reproducible and robust in the face of regulatory requirements and quality.
7. Computerized Systems Validation Professional:
Its main mission is to ensure that all systems and spreadsheets that the company has are verified and are subject to validation. The biggest challenge in this area is to reconcile the knowledge of technology and quality, with the processes of the Life Science area, ensuring validation status throughout the system/software lifecycle.
As you complete your specialization, consider deepening your technical knowledge and exploring it in practice in an industry company. This is critical for you, as a quality professional, to acquire competence to deal with the most advanced features combined with real experiences with critical challenges of the industrial environment that will certainly differentiate you in the market.
Project New Lions Kivalita
Kivalita Consulting, which specializes in the development of quality management and technology validation for life science companies, offers the Kivalita New Lions Project to improve and accelerate the learning of university students, through comprehensive technical content combined with practical experiences within industrial environments of sectors such as pharmaceutical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical, food, sanitarian, veterinary and health products.
It is a project that has partner companies, which provide expert support, infrastructure and internship opening or vacancy based on the performance of the enrolled student. We at Kivalita Consulting act as a hub between graduate students and the companies participating in the project.
The Kivalita New Lions Project includes three phases:
- Professional training: theoretical classes and monitoring of a specialist in the area, acquiring technical and behavioral knowledge for the labor market;
- Acquisition of industry-specific knowledge in a “hybrid” way: theoretical and practical knowledge, minimally selecting two areas to be able to act: quality assurance, laboratory or hospital area;
- Internship or vacancy in the area: based on the student’s performance, it is possible to have the opportunity of internship or vacancy in the area (voluntary or remunerated), where he will exercise all the knowledge he has acquired.
