Challenges with manual paper-based logbooks

Drug manufacturing companies encounter several incessant challenges and difficulty when they make use of manual paper-based logbooks. It is difficult to record the details pertaining to the equipment’s calibrations, stability schedule, equipment usage, cleaning, maintenance, HPLC column logs with a manual paper-based method. Manual data entry in the logbook is known to reduce productivity, irrelevant information, errors, contains inaccurate estimates for production quantities, deviation, etc.

The use of the paper-based logbook is known for creating compliance issues. It also affects operational process which tends to be inaccurate while capturing the details of the individual logs with user signatures, date, time, test and product details and batch numbers.

The validation process is also challenging because lot numbers of each batch are processed across multiple locations.

It is also important to review logbook entries repeated to ensure that these data have been accurately collated over time according to SOP procedures. The entire process becomes more tasking when the user has to use a specific logbook for each step and hence leading to an accumulation of logbooks. This has a ripple effect on the verification of documents.

Corrections are made to specific documents on the logbook. When this is done, records are kept and these records must be signed and dated by the persons concerned along with the appropriate reasons as to why the correction was made. When these records are transferred to other departments, it is difficult to trace or track them manually and this is strenuous.

To eliminate the problems faced during data entries and capturing all the usage logs details across the facilities, we at Infotronicx Pharmasol designed a solution called the Electronic Log book. This is done specifically for the FDA (GMP/cGMP) manufacturing facilities to overcome various challenges across the departments of an organization during log entries.
