Dublin, Nov. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Integrating Design Controls and the Product Development Process for Effective and Compliant Medical Device Development" training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Most medical devices are subject to design controls requirements defined by a global set of regulations, standards, and guidance to ensure the safety and effectiveness of these products. Design controls alone, however, are not sufficient to address all of the needs of a medical device development program. To address this gap, organizations employ some variation on a product development process to integrate design controls requirements with more general program management needs.
This seminar provides an overview of design controls requirements and proposes two models for incorporating these requirements into a more comprehensive product development process. The first proposal assumes a serialized "V-model" approach to product development and steps the attendee through the combination of design controls and other program activities in a stage-gate process. The second proposal assumes an iterative model (e.g. Agile Scrum, SAFe) and applies variations of stage-gate processes depending on the degree of iteration required and the complexity of the program.
The seminar will recommend both compliance and program management tools to move organizations through each stage gate. There will also be a discussion of the Quality Management System, as a subset of a Business Management System, which will provide clarity regarding those activities crucial to safety, efficacy, and compliance, as contrasted with important program activities that go beyond the scope of quality and regulatory compliance.
The primary goal of the seminar is to propose a model that integrates safety and efficacy with compliance and more general program management needs. A secondary goal is to ensure elements of the product development process that are normally within the scope of a regulatory audit or inspection are distinct from elements that might not be of primary interest to regulators and notified bodies.
