Operational Qualification (OQ) is a process in which the performance of automated equipment or systems is qualified to ensure that they are operating in accordance with their design specifications, industry standards, and regulatory requirements.
The OQ is typically the second step in the validation process of automated equipment or systems, following Installation Qualification (IQ). It involves testing and verifying that the equipment or system is capable of performing its intended functions in a reliable and consistent manner, and that it meets the user's requirements
For PLA 3.0 this means the OQ validates the correctness of mathematical calculations performed by PLA 3.0 on the target system, using data sets verified by Stegmann Systems. You can run it (like IQ) fully automatically with just one click
