Design patterns for automation of marketing authorisations in pharmaceutical industry


This paper reports on experiences of using existing and creating new design patterns when deploying layered and component based software architecture that automates procedures for marketing authorization. We use the strategy pattern within the generic architecture and deploy the architectural example components following the MVC and front controller patterns. Three domain specific patterns have been created and named as: look-up, submission and evaluation. We advocate that our combination of general and domain specific patterns (i) facilitate the design of distributed software applications, (ii) can be reused in any problem domain where workflows similar to submission and evaluations of application licences occur, and (iii) comprise commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components that fit within our software architecture.
