Medical Device Challenges
Today's medical device industry is very challenging, as the range of products and the organizations that manufacture and market them is incredibly diverse.
Medical devices can include everything from tongue depressors, toothbrushes, sunglasses, scalpels, contact lenses, diagnostic test systems, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (M.R.I.) systems, medical lasers, drug-eluting stents, pacemakers, and mobile apps.
The ISO 13485 standard may be applied to all of them and even to the suppliers of medical device components.
This, in part, is the reason trying to standardize systems consistently across organizations is such a challenge.
Aerospace & Defense
Depending on the specifics of the medical device, an organization may borrow best practices from the automotive industry, the aerospace industry, clinical labs, the pharmaceutical industry, the semiconductor industry, or one of many other fields.
One common mistake is to think of design control as the product development process. While this is the core of design control, it's much more effective to view the product as a lifecycle approach.
Design control is often a significant source of confusion, although; with time, it has become more structured and better understood.
One common problem is in many organizations, there is a resistance to approve many design documents because they want them to be flexible and allow change. Orcanos system gives the complete flexibility to constantly make changes in the course of the design and the document describing it.
