Statistical Tools to Aid in the Assessment of Critical Process Parameters
March 02, 2016
There are many different approaches for assessing process parameter criticality, and assessing which process parameters have a significant impact on critical quality attributes (CQAs) is a particular challenge. Including an unimportant process parameter as a critical process parameter (CPP) in a control strategy can be detrimental. The authors present a statistical approach to determine when a statistically significant relationship between a process parameter and a CQA is large enough to make a practically meaningful impact (i.e., practical significance).
