Optimal Industrial Technologies, one of the key industry players in process analytical technology (PAT) for industrial processes, has announced the publishing and immediate availability of its free book ‘QbD & PAT for dummies’ which is part of the “dummies” range of books published by Wiley. This provides a starting point for processing and manufacturing industry engineers, designers and integrators seeking to boost productivity and product quality by implementing a PAT strategy.

‘QbD & PAT for dummies’, available electronically and in print, offers a simple and easy to follow guide on what Quality by Design (QbD) and PAT are, the regulatory framework supporting these approaches, as well as how leveraging these concepts can positively transform production processes and quality testing.

Authored by leading PAT application experts at Optimal and its partner company Quality by Design Consultancy, the book also explains how companies can adopt PAT in batch and continuous manufacturing situations, providing insightful real-world examples and practical tips. These help readers to understand some of the most critical issues that need to be addressed when setting up a PAT project, such as where to start and how to select a first application.

Readers will also learn about the importance of a process orchestrator, such as the widely used synTQ software platform from Optimal. PAT knowledge management systems are crucial to organise the large volumes of data collected during manufacturing processes, make quality predictions and enable the development of science-based knowledge by presenting the data in a digestible manner.

Martin Gadsby, co-author and Director at Optimal Industrial Technologies commented: “The QbD initiative aims to change the traditional paradigm of stopping a process to test product quality, over to building quality-in by careful process design and continuous testing. This transformation can only be achieved with PAT. ‘QbD & PAT for dummies’ clearly explains, with the straightforward style of the ‘for dummies’ series, how industries can implement PAT strategies in process monitoring applications and as part of a total quality management system.

With 20 years of experience in PAT knowledge management and a software solution that is currently used by over half of the top ten global pharmaceutical manufacturing companies, readers can be sure to find reliable, accurate and up-to-date information in this book.
