A successful medical device development process must meet many criteria – perhaps the most critical is reliability. The varied engineering disciplines that enter into the device development process necessarily use different methodologies to attempt to ensure that their contribution to the process maximizes the reliability of that component or subsystem. At the June 3 Forum, attendees will hear from three experienced engineering professionals with three different perspectives on this problem.
The panel and attendees will discuss questions such as:
• When should failure analyses begin?
• How can information from past development processes be incorporated?
• How many different failure analysis methods should be used?
• How does one acquire probability data for failure analysis methods?
• How should failure analyses for different subsystems be combined?
