A Structured Data Approach To Risk Management and Design Controls
Tuesday, August 24, 2021
There is a better way to manage your product development data.
As innovation in medical device design increases, so does the complexity of product development. Consequently, companies need to integrate and manage their data in new ways – to understand the status of a project at any time, to discover the effect of a proposed change across the project, and to structure data for regulatory submissions.
A structured data framework incorporates data items, dynamic links between items, and structured documents that include the necessary data, content, and visualization to support the generation of both internal technical reports and compliance documentation deliverables. And, with structured data, comprehensive traces and reports can present data and content in any format or style required to satisfy both internal technical reporting needs as well as formal regulatory submission needs.
This presentation will cover how taking a structured approach to data ensures high data integrity, a strong chain of evidence, and improved credibility with regulatory bodies.
Examples will be used for:
- Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), Hazard Analysis (HA)
- Use Error Analysis (UEA) / Usability
- FMEA (Application, Design, Process, other): standalone or blended with HA
- Reusable, managed libraries for Hazards, Harms, and all other data items
- Requirements management
- Test management
- Automatic trace matrix generation supporting unlimited levels and data items
