Risk Management in Medical Device Manufacturing

Medical Device, Medical Device Safety and Regulation, Medical Device Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Wednesday, December 04, 2019

Medical device manufacturers operate in an increasingly regulated, safety-critical environment, and frequently have many variants of parts, products and product lines. It is, therefore, necessary to identify, estimate and evaluate your device risks at the right time to increase the quality and safety of the device, and to motivate the project members.

Having an effective risk management process adds value by decreasing the project risks and avoiding costly late-stage changes. Furthermore, a risk management process is also mandated by regulatory authorities in the US through the FDA CFR 21 Part 820, the updated European EU MDR/EU IVDR and the MDSAP, which covers markets such as Canada, Brazil, Australia and Japan.

There are several aspects of implementing an effective risk management process. A recommended first step would be to establish a risk management process including usable and operational templates so that the process complies with ISO 14971:2012 for the European market and ISO 14971:2007 for the rest of the world.

This webinar will provide attendees with some tips on implementing — or improving — the risk management process.

It will also address the way in which robust system behavioral modelling can be integrated with downstream risk management practices to produce better, safer products. It is intended, through discussion of the latest advancements in system-level thinking, to help inform senior engineering professionals responsible for the cross-discipline lifecycle of their products.

Christoph Golinski, Senior PLM consultant

Christoph Golinski has more than 15 years of experience in consulting for PLM solutions in the medical device, aerospace, electronics, high-tech and renewable energy industries. His knowledge spans the disciplines of configuration management, requirements engineering and PLM data quality management. His fascination of PLM software is visible, and he could talk about it for hours. The range of requirements and the tools used in a manufacturing company is wide and almost everything is included in a PLM software system, from complete in-house developments to open source. The character of the product data and the business processes vary from heavily regulated industries to less regulated industries, but both will benefit from being managed in a PLM system. In short, PLM is and remains the backbone of every industrial company.
