Wizards

The Wizard extensions come in two flavours:

1) Some provide auto-generation of Design Controls based on questionnairs filled in by the user.

2) Other are guided Checklists where the questions are to be answered by drag and drop references to existing Design Controls.

Note that Wizards are only available in the Aligned Elements Windows Client.

Activate a wizard by downloading and unzipping the zip file, then place the content in your Wizard Directory (see Main Menu -> Wizards -> Set Wizard Directory).

To run a Wizard, go to Main Menu -> Wizards -> Run Wizard and select the Wizard to run. 

When to Submit a 510(k) for a Software Change to an Existing Device
The FDA requires that medical device manufacturers submit a new 510(k) when a marketed device has changes, including changes to software, that could significantly affect the safety or effectiveness of the device or when there are major changes in the intended use of the device.
This wizard codifies the FDA guidance document "Deciding When to Submit a 510(k) for a Software Change to an Existing Device" to help you assess whether your changes are significant and therefore will result in a new 510(k).
