 Validation Engineer

enVision uses and functions for the Validation Engineer

Who

Validation Engineer  (Level 2-Advanced User)

 Role, Responsibilities, and Skill Sets

Validation engineers evaluate and calibrate the equipment and procedures used in development and production of a variety of products. They ensure all systems are running according to necessary specifications and operate within regulations to ensure the production of quality products. Validation professionals work within several different fields, such as the aerospace, automotive, biotechnology, computer software, and pharmaceutical industries.

Typical validation responsibilities include equipment budgeting, purchasing, monitoring, and testing. Validation engineers need to be familiar with industry standards and regulatory guidelines and oversee the work of validation technicians.

Role Responsibilities

The primary duty of validation engineers is testing. They establish validation standards, develop testing protocols, prepare equipment, document test results, and maintain records for later analysis. They often need to coordinate with other personnel or departments who will be affected by testing.

Validation engineers compose reports and adjust equipment or processes that require improvement. They could also decide if equipment needs to be repaired or entirely replaced. Other duties include preventative maintenance, maintenance of testing equipment, and overseeing the inventory of validation supplies.

  • Review test data with all team members
  • Develop summary reports for entire tests performed and assign as required
  • Conduct validation or qualification tests of new or existing processes, equipment, or software in accordance with internal protocols or external standards
  • Develop validation master plans, process flow diagrams, test cases, or standard operating procedures
  • Prepare validation or performance qualification protocols for new or modified manufacturing processes, systems, or equipment for pharmaceutical, electronics, or other types of production
  • Conduct audits of validation or performance qualification processes to ensure compliance with internal or regulatory requirements
  • Create, populate, or maintain databases for tracking validation activities, test results, or validated systems
  • Identify deviations from established product or process standards and provide recommendations for resolving deviations
  • Prepare detailed reports or design statements based on results of validation and qualification tests or reviews of procedures and protocols
  • Procure or devise automated lab validation test stations or other test fixtures and equipment
  • Resolve testing problems by modifying testing methods or revising test objectives and standards
  • Communicate with regulatory agencies regarding compliance documentation or validation results
  • Coordinate the implementation or scheduling of validation testing with affected departments and personnel
  • Maintain validation test equipment
  • Participate in internal or external training programs to maintain knowledge of validation principles, industry trends, and novel technologies
  • Evaluate information to determine compliance with standards -- use relevant information and individual judgment to determine whether events or processes comply with laws, regulations, and standards
  • Retrieve information -- observe, receive, and obtain information from all relevant sources
  • Analyze data or information -- identify the underlying principles, reasons, or facts of information by breaking down information or data into separate parts
  • Identify objects, actions, and events -- identify information by categorizing, estimating, recognizing differences or similarities, and detecting changes in circumstances or events
  • Monitor processes, materials, or surroundings -- monitoring and reviewing information from materials, events, and the environment, to detect or assess problems
  • Process information -- compile, code, categorize, calculate, tabulate, audit, or verify information or data
  • Interact with computers -- use computers and computer systems (including hardware and software) to program, write software, set up functions, enter data, and process information
  • Making decisions and solving problems -- analyze information and evaluate results to select the best solution and solve problems
  • Document/record information -- enter, transcribe, record, store, and maintain information in written or electronic/magnetic form
  • Interpret the meaning of information for others -- translate or explain what the information means and how it can be used
  • Organize, plan, and prioritize work -- develop specific goals and plans to prioritize, organize, and accomplish your work
  • Update and use relevant knowledge -- keep up-to-date technically and apply new knowledge to your job
  • Inspect equipment, structures, and material -- inspect equipment, structures, and materials to identify the cause of errors or other problems or defects


Role Skill Set

  • Completion of a bachelor's degree program is the minimum qualification for entry-level validation technician positions
  • Engineering jobs generally require both a degree and several years of experience
  • Qualifying degree fields generally include electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and computer science
  • Relevant coursework includes math, statistics, and materials science (completion of a master's degree program can increase advancement opportunities)
  • Supplemental coursework or experience can vary by industry (for example, validation engineers working in the electronics or computer industries might be required to know computer programming languages, while biotechnology validation positions could require a biological or medical background and laboratory experience)
