Slat Filler Qualification Question

Hello all,

I have a question when it comes to a machine qualification. When you get a piece of equipment in this case a slat filler, you first qualify the machine, correct? Then when you have a qualified speed range that you then use the to validate your packaging per product count/bottle size?

Also, from experience, when you have qualified a slat filler did you measure the speed in bottles per minute or rotation of the slats per minute?
