According to the FDA, Quality by Design (QbD) is a “scientific, risk-based, holistic approach to pharmaceutical development” that involves a “deliberate design effort from product conception through commercialization.” Use of QbD in pharmaceutical manufacturing yields substantial business benefits, including:

  • Reduced operating costs
  • More efficient manufacturing processes
  • Better positioning to meet regulatory requirements

In addition to these benefits, recent regulatory developments suggest a push toward QbD – for instance, the FDA recently suggested that all Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs) for generic drugs should have QbD elements.
