What is a Building Maintenance System?

A building maintenance system refers to a comprehensive set of practices and protocols aimed at providing the upkeep involved in the product and storage of pharmaceutical products. It contains a wide range of activities including preventive and corrective maintenance, equipment calibration, validation, and compliance. The goal of a building maintenance system in the biopharmaceutical industry is to safeguard the reliability of infrastructures such as cleanrooms, HVAC systems, utilities, and laboratory equipment to maintain a control environment for the manufacturing of safe and quality pharmaceutical products. The building maintenance system minimizes equipment downtime, providing consist product quality and adherence to regulatory standards.

Key Benefits of Calibration


One of the key benefits building maintenance system calibration brings is compliance. Calibration make sure that the system is accurately calibrated so facility managers can maintain compliance with industry regulations and standards. Compliance is important because it guarantees that the building's safety and operational efficiency are in accordance with legal and cGMP requirements. A calibrated maintenance system also makes sure that inspections, preventive maintenance tasks, and repairs are performed at regular inteverals which reduces the risk of equipment failure while minimizing downtime.

Improved Product Quality

By providing verification that the system is properly calibrated, biopharmaceutical organizations can achieve improved efficiency and accuracy of their maintenance operations which leads to better product quality. Calibrating the system allows for precise measurements and controls so maintenance activities are performed at optimal levels. The accuracy reduces the risk of errors which results in a consistent production process. Calibrated systems also allows for proactive maintenance, identifying issues before they impact product quality which prevents defects and improves customer satisfaction.

Energy Consumption

Calibrating a building maintenance system also verifies the functionality of various components including the HVAC system, lighting controls, and temperature systems. Calibration helps to maximize energy efficiency within the building. It also make sure that the equipment operates at the right levels which prevents unnecessary energy waste and reduces energy consumption. Calibrated systems have the ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions to optimize energy usage in real-time. With improved energy management through calibration, organizations can enjoy significan cost savings.

Best Practices for BMS Calibration

Establish a Calibration Program

For biopharmaceutical and related industries, establishing a calibration program is important to maintain performance and accuracy in building maintenance systems. By implementing calibration "best practices", organizations can verify that their systems operate a peak performance, minimizing downtime and costly errors. The first step in establishing a calibration program is to identify the components that require regular calibration including temperature sensors, pressure gauges, and flow metters. Once the components are identified, a schedule should be developed to outline the frequency of calibration checks. It's vital to follow industry standards and manufacturer recommendations during the calibration process for reliability.

Document Procedures

For peak performance and reliability of building maintenance systems, it's important to follow proper calibration procedures. Document these procedures for consistency and efficiency in maintenance programs. Start by establishing a standard calibration schedule based on the manufacturer recommendations and industry standards. Outline the steps involved in the calibration process, including equipment preparation, measurement technique, and accepted criteria. It's also imperative to maintain accurate records of calibration activities such as the dates of calibration, results, and any adjustments made. Provide detailed instructions for troubleshooting calibration deviations. Regularly review and updated the documented procedures to show changes in equipment, technology, or regulations.

Implement Calibration Software

Software is also a key best practice for building maintenance system calibration. By using dedicated software, facilities can streamline and improve the calibration process which will provide accurate and reliable measurements for the equipment. Calibration software offers a variety of benefits including a centralized data management, automated schedule, and real-time tracking. This gives maintenance teams the ability to manage calibration procedures, track calibration history, and generate comprehensive reports.
