I am in the process of writing PQ protocols for a data logger alarming and data transfer software (realtime) at my new job. The software came with IQ/OQ protocols.
I am not extremely experienced so i wanted some input on what i have so far. SO far i have a handful of test such as
ensuring the sw can handle multiple alarms from the data loggers for low and high threshold alarm conditions
running actual hard tests ( placing the data loggers in a humidity cabinets and ovens and fridges under real operating/ manufacturing conditions to ensure alarms are given.
Simulating network connection problems buy disconnecting the hubs form the network to ensure communication alarms are received for multiple loggers at the same time.
Data integrity checks by verification of data transmitted over the network against data gathered on another data logger that is to be manually downloaded.
i am also planning to monitor the data over the next week or so to ensure performance. some of these tests(alarms) were part of the OQ but were conducted on the sw side by changing the threshold on the sw to generate immediate responses to the changed temp/ RH values. i thought it would be a good idea to perform these tests using actual conditions.
Any inputs, ideas, comments, criticisms are welcome. am i not doing enough, am i going over kill or completely wrong with my PQ protocols?
