Process Analytical Technology (PAT)

Process analytical technology (PAT) is a system for analysis and control of manufacturing processes that measures critical quality parameters and performance attributes of raw and in-process materials. It enables in-process data to be used for assessing the quality of a batch during manufacture, significantly reduces the need for finished product testing, and as a result, improves lead times.
