Devicemaker’s Guide to Quality System Change Management
If you’re involved in any aspect of quality management systems (QMS) for your medical device, you need a strong change management process in place to avoid change interaction, where one change type triggers another change type.
Since QMS runs throughout your organization, it’s difficult to make a change in one area without impacting another.
Devicemaker’s Guide to Quality System Change Management breaks down QMS into separate areas where change may occur — device design, manufacturing processes, documentation and regulatory requirements. It explains the relevant requirements in the FDA’s quality management system regulations, the upcoming EU-MDR and the international standard ISO 13485. And it includes a template you can use to make sure each change element is properly addressed.
The report lays out a six-step plan for implementing change in the most cohesive way:
- Understand the difference between incremental change and step-shift change
- Identify change triggers
- Assess the business implications
- Ensure traceability through the steps of the change process
- Apply the process to specific change types
- Understand the interactions in the change types
Ensure a consistent approach to your change management process and avoid problems associated with ad hoc methods. Order your copy today.
