While designing a formulation the major concern of a formulator is to achieve the best degree of quality in the final product. Before FDA launched Current Good Manufacturing Practices, the quality of a product was only defined using the quality control tests or more specifically Quality by Test (QbT). In case of pharmaceuticals, the product is defined on the basis of its quality. So, the quality of pharmaceutical product should be determined by a more effective and a comparably easy method. For this, FDA generalized the con- cept of Quality by Design (QbD), which was based on the conceptual understanding of how the attributes of a production process or the attributes of the material used in the specific process affecting the quality of the end product that is the final required product. The application of Quality by Design (QbD) in pharmaceutical drug development loop is now a thrust area for the regulatory authorities as well as the industry views
