Steve Tinson has 26 years of experience of the application of IT and Automation within the pharmaceutical industry.
I currently work as a Senior Counsultant with Scitech specialising in the delivery of computerised systems in GxP critical applications.
After graduating, I worked for 9 years as a process engineer and project manager at a primary manufacturing facility in both chemical and bio-processing plants. I was responsible for all process control and automation projects including software development on a large SCADA application, control system design, specification and purchase, sensor evaluation and commissioning work.
I have used my knowledge of process control, SCADA, DCS and MES systems and pharmaceutical manufacturing to address information needs at operational, support and managerial levels.
I am experienced in the interpretation of FDA and EU regulations and guidelines concerning use of computerised systems in GxP critical applications. I have prepared and presented internal and external training courses and has presented at industry seminars and conferences. I recently contributed to the new revision of the GAMP Testing Good Practice Guide due for publication in 2012.
I have completed significant computer validation projects involving planning, preparation of documentation (including validation plans, risk assessments, DQ, IQ, OQ and PQ protocols, reports, and SOPs), test activities and performed supplier audits.
As a project and program manager, I have successfully delivered IT and automation projects on behalf of clients.
