If an FDA inspector came to a facility today, would the design control system pass with flying colors?

If the answer is "maybe" or "no" … then very likely there is a problem. Fortunately, Ombu Enterprises and FDAnews have a solution.

Take this important step. Enroll TODAY to attend the interactive workshop Medical Device Design Control: Implementing an Approach That Works in Chicago on June 16-17, 2015.

Attendees will have the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the issues confronting them from Dan O’Leary, an expert in quality, operations and program management … as well as benefit of hearing from and discussing the issues with other attendees who face the same challenges every day.

With Dan taking the lead, attendees will learn requirements, develop approaches and find out how to execute them through a series of exercises prepared especially to simulate real-life scenarios.

Using examples and case studies, attendees will deepen their understanding of design controls and find out how to develop procedures that accurately define and document the approach.

Since many device manufacturers market in the US, the EU and Canada, attendees will learn the similarities and differences in the requirements of the three regions, so they can develop a fully comprehensive system that includes them all.

And to enhance understanding, many presentations will feature recent warning letters to illustrate potential problems and help attendees learn from the mistakes of others.

Attendees will learn:

  •     The regulatory basis for design controls in the US, the European Union and Canada
  •     Methods of design planning based on project management techniques
  •     Developing sources of design input and resolving problems
  •     The role of design output and methods to ensure it is complete
  •     How to conduct design reviews that help improve the device design
  •     Using design verification methods to match design output with design input
  •     Conducting design validation and its critical elements of software validation and risk management
  •     Implementing the 5 vital components of design change

This two-day workshop is a rare opportunity to "get up close and personal" with an acknowledged expert … to rub elbows with colleagues who daily encounter the same issues that you do … to pick their brains … absorb their knowledge … and develop contacts that'll be invaluable all through the year.
