Meeting International Standards for Medical Device Reliability and Risk Management

Methods for Managing Product Reliability and Risk

In the design and development of safe, effective medical devices, reducing risk and ensuring reliability must be top priority. Not only are these aspects of product quality mandated by agencies and organizations like the FDA and the CDRH, they are the moral and ethical imperative of all medical device manufacturers.

Methods for risk analysis and risk control often vary by company, device type, and application, but all methods must address any applicable quality standards, for example:
