Aligned Elements Template Sets contain templates that facilitate compliant documentation important standards in Medical Device Development.
All or parts of these template sets can be used in your existing configuration.
Contact Aligned Elements Support Team for advise on how to best incorporate them into your Design Control Structure.
It is recommended that you try out and inspect the downloaded template set in a test project before applying it in a production project.
Getting compliant with IEC 62304 may seem daunting at first. The Aligned Elements IEC 62304 configuration has been set up to guide you through this process and has been tuned to automatically take care of most of the involved quality checks, making sure that the required tasks and actions are sufficiently covered.
For medical device manufacturers with limited previous experience in usability engineering, the task of implementing IEC 62366-1 might seem intimidating. However, the updated 2015 version of the standard has simplified and clarified the required process steps and tasks and Aligned Elements now features a preconfigured IEC 62366-1:2015 setup that integrates the inputs, outputs and risk relevant elements of the usability process into the oveall Design Control traceability.
The Aligned Elements IEC 82304 configuration is a superset of the IEC 62304 configuration. It expands the IEC 62304 configuration with Product Use Requirements and Product Validation Tests. It has been tuned to automatically take care of most of the involved quality checks, making sure that the required tasks and actions are sufficiently covered.
The Aligned Elements IEC 82304 configuration contains:
The Aligned Elements IEC 82304 supports documentation management of:
Note! The Aligned Elements IEC 82304 configuration is a significantly large extension to apply.
Computer System Validation often shortened as "CSV", concerns data processing systems are used as part of production or the quality system (from FDA QSR 820.70) or, as freely interpreted from ISO 13485:2016, all computerized systems being used in any of the processes regulated by the Quality Management System.
In its most basic form, a CSV plan should state the User Requirements, which captures the intended use of the systems. The User Requirements are then tested in IQ, OQ, and PQs, and the results of these tests and, if applicable, deviations are summarized in the Validation Report.
These kinds of tasks are easily performed in an ALM like Aligned Elements.
This lightweight configuration contains the basic elements for documenting the validation of a computer system.
The Medical Device Cybersecurity Risk Assessment template pack contains:
- RVT templates defining Assets, Threats, Vulnerabilities and their associated Adverse Impacts and Counter Measures as well as corresponding Word Reporting style templates in A3 format
- Over 30 importable best practice cybersecurity mitigations
This allows the manufacturer to conduct Cybersecurity risk assessments in line with the FDA cybersecurity guidelines as well as the AAIM TIR 57 and include the risk assessment design controls in the overall development traceability.
