The Team should maintain records of verification results, and necessary actions arising from the results, using QP1100-4 VERIFICATION CHECKLIST as a guide. The Verification Checklist ISO Template keeps track of the input requirement, who it was verified by, and the date.
The Team should, in accordance with the Project Plan, conduct design verifications to ensure that D&D outputs meet D&D input requirements. Keep in mind the design phase is the most important phase of the product life cycle, because inherent quality, effectiveness, and customer satisfaction of the product are established there. No matter how carefully a product may be manufactured or how perfect a quality control program, inherent qualities cannot be improved except through design enhancement.
It is crucial that adequate planning and controls be established, implemented, and maintained during the design phase to optimize quality, effectiveness, safety, and customer satisfaction prior to manufacturing. At the end of the project, the Product Development Team should review all records generated during the course of design and development, looking for opportunities for improvement.
