Software, Design Control, and Medical Devices (July ASQ Biomedical NCDG Roundtable)
Wednesday, July 23, 2014 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Join ASQ NCDG in the our Design Control Series Roundtables ....this round table focuses on Software, Design Control, & Medical Devices:
Continuing the series of Roundtables on Design Control, this program will focus on what design control means to software. This program will cover when design control applies to software, when it doesn’t and to what types of software. Each design control step will be reviewed with respect to software, along with the documentation expected for each step. Additional emphasis will be placed on software requirements (Design Input) and on software verification and validation. As this program has been preceded by questionnaires at other programs, there will be an extended question and answer session. Note that this program is focused on design control and software so while IEC 62304 is not ignored, neither is it a significant aspect of the program.
Discussion, topics, and examples from the audience are encouraged.
