This paper outlines the application of human performance principles to document design and provides guidance for how to implement this in a biopharmaceutical manufacturing environment, with proven results. A more effective system for creating and revising documents—specifically, one that is
aligned with human performance principles—leads to reduced time spent revising documents, improved training and performance, and fewer deviations and CAPAs. By investing the time to understand how work is done and creating documents that align with the needs of the end-user and the realities of how work is performed, we can harness the reliability and promise of a learning organization that is steeped in the principles of human performance.
