Capturing GMP data and ensuring data integrity is a vital component of app building, and it's important to have visibility into the changes that take place throughout your app.

Tulip's approach to data integrity follows GMP guidelines and the concepts summarized by the acronym, ALCOA:

  • Attributable
  • Legible
  • Contemporaneous
  • Original
  • Accurate

History Widget Overview

The history widget offers visibility and traceability into the creation, update and deletion of table records. It is an interactive, scrollable widget, that you can embed within your app, and link to a specific table record.

This offers the ability to verify, or approve, the change of the table record itself, the state of other variables within the app at the time of completion, and if applicable, the e-signature of the user within the app.

You might find this widget especially powerful for batch work, subassemblies, and material management. From a quality perspective, this widget can be leveraged in the approval process of your batch work.

Information included in the Record History

The Record History will first show a header that includes the following information:

  • Logged-in User
  • App name
  • Station name
  • Step name
  • Timestamp

The widget will then include information about the change of the record itself, including:

  • Type of edit (Create, Update, Delete etc.)
  • Original value
  • New Value
  • Timestamp

Additional information

  • Logged process data: The values of variables within your app when the app was completed. Note: These variables must have 'Saved for Analysis' enabled on them.
  • E-Signature: This will include the verification of signature, the reason for signature and the User associated
