Mc Caffery, Fergal and Donnelly, Peter and Dorling, Alec and Wilkie, F.G (2004) A Software Process Development, Assessment and Improvement Framework,for the Medical Device Industry. In: Fourth Int. SPICE Conf, 28-29 April 2004, Lisbon, Portugal.
This paper describes a software process development, assessment and improvement framework, structured to ensure regulatory compliance for the software developed in medical devices. Software is becoming an increasingly important aspect of medical devices and medical device regulation. Medical devices can only be marketed if compliance and approval from the appropriate regulatory bodies of the Food and Drug Administration (US requirement), and the European Commission under its Medical Device Directives (CE marking requirement) is achieved. Integrated into the design process of medical devices, is the requirement of the production and maintenance of a device technical file, incorporating a design history file. Design history illustrates the well documented, defined and controlled processes and outputs, undertaken in the development of medical devices and for our particular consideration with this framework - the software components.
