"This code is a complete hack, may or may not work, etc.." - The
Challenges of Validating R
Aimee Gott (Mango Solutions Ltd)
TIME AND PLACE
Tuesday, 17 March 2015, 14:15 - 15:15
University of Bath, room 4W 1.7
Whilst R usage has grown hugely in recent years the use of R in
regulated industries, such as the pharmaceutical industry, is still
limited. The R core team has provided documentation as guidance for
the use of R in such industries, though R still comes with
``absolutely no warranty'' and there is no formal documentation
related to the many additional packages available on CRAN. To
comply with FDA guidelines these add on packages must be validated
along with core and recommended packages. Mango was first asked to
validate a version of R in 2009. The growth of R and the number of
companies wishing to validate R has led to a steady stream of R
validations at Mango in recent months. In this talk we will
consider some of the challenges that we have faced in validating R
packages and discuss some of the tools that we have developed to
aid the process.
The meeting will take place in room 4W 1.7, University of Bath (see
www.bath.ac.uk/maps for a map).
The meeting is open to all and free of charge. For more information
