The objective of this protocol is to verify the installation of the LogiLAB SDMS program and to verify that it performs its intended function in a consistent and reproducible manner. Specific test objectives and acceptance criteria are defined.
1.1 Installation Qualification
The Installation Qualification consists of tests to ensure that the components of the LogiLAB SDMS program have been properly installed. Specific test objectives and acceptance criteria are defined.
This protocol specifies the Installation Qualification tests that are to be applied to the LogiLAB SDMS program, which will be used in a cGMP environment, for the purpose of verifying proper installation. The LogiLAB SDMS program was installed to capture, store raw-data, meta-data, files and transfer necessary data over the LAN to a database. Within the scope of this protocol are the activities and tasks that must be performed throughout the qualification process.
Changes made to the software and/or computer systems after validation is completed must be conducted under the appropriate system change control procedure. Parts of the protocol may be used for reconfirmation or revalidation, if necessary.
3 Validation Methodology
Tests within this protocol have been designed to verify that all-important elements of the LogiLAB SDMS program installation adhere to the requirements set forth by the manufacturer, when successfully completed. For each installation test in this protocol, a cover sheet is provided to define the test objective, procedure, and acceptance criteria. Following each cover sheet are the data sheets. These data sheets outline the information that must be verified and/or documented, as well as provide space for recording additional information. The information recorded on the test data sheets combined with referenced supporting test documentation provides a method whereby adherence to the test acceptance criteria can be verified.
Any deviation from the specified acceptance criteria/expected results must be recorded on a deviation report.

5 System Description
LogiLAB SDMS is generic software designed to handle the scientific instrument data from any analytical instruments and can facilitate data management with access control. System will perform periodic data backup and facilitate restore the same. The data collected would be stored as flat files in a FTP server in a non readable format. Data access view is controlled through user rights providing data security. The data entered by the user is sent to a centralized database server and a FTP server. All data generated from instrument or any other source in laboratory operations is captured and store centrally. Secured storage with version control of all the SOPs, Instruction manuals and MSDS can be achieved with SDMS and secured access to data as required enables availability of any required data to users. Strong search facility ensures availability of required data instantaneously.
5.2 Work Flow
LogiLAB SDMS will collect the Laboratory Data generated from Instrument PCs and store centrally on FTP / DB servers. Data collection will be scheduled based on each client/instrument requirement to automate the storage process. Storage structure of Archival data being maintained as is including Directory structure as per Client setup ensures easy search on LogiLAB SDMS view panels as well as restoration of data back on client as and when required. Modified files are stored with version controls and maintaining number of versions can be defined to reduce the unwanted data storage. Data on client machine can be automatically removed periodically upon backup reducing load on client machines.
5.3 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance Management
LogiLAB SDMS 21 CFR Part 11 component has a security module which covers the security needs, user rights allocation, CFR policy settings like password length, ageing, auto log-off timer, audit trail, reason resource creation and electronic signature support.
Audit trail viewer will support export of audit trail into human readable format. All audit trail data is stored inside the database, is accessible and can be traced back to the actual user, date/time stamped, action performed and reason for the action.
The LogiLAB SDMS Customer has the following responsibilities:
