Medical Device Manufacturing Process Software Can Be Validated By Non-Experts

NORWOOD, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 25, 2006 -- Software used by medical device manufacturers for design and development engineering, quality and regulatory processes must be validated, but you don't need software engineers to do most validation work, David A. Vogel of Intertech Engineering Associates writes in the May issue of Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry magazine.

Letting non-software engineers validate standard software saves much money, Vogel, Ph.D., writes. "Non-software engineers should be able to validate most software categorized as off-the-shelf or embedded," he says. Higher-priced software engineers must validate custom-developed, complex, or highly risky software.

The article covers the regulatory background, what kinds of software must be validated, what FDA definitions of verification and validation, key validation components, and the concept of 100% verifiable output.
