JOINING INNOVATION WITH COMPLIANCE

Key Elements of Design Controls Diagram

Medical device companies and their supply chains are more dispersed than ever. Everyone involved in new product development and introduction (NPDI) needs to share, review, and use the latest product and quality information to ensure safe and effective products can be built as designed. And, all processes must comply with the FDA and other regulating bodies.

Arena manages the key elements of design controls while accelerating innovation. Your quality, engineering, and operations teams can quickly establish, document, and follow compliant procedures.

EFFECTIVE DESIGN CONTROLS ENHANCE YOUR AUDIT CONFIDENCE

Developing medical devices requires adherence to FDA, EMA, ISO, and other regulations. Arena’s design control capabilities simplify your review, verification, and validation processes. Arena QMS speeds design changes and transfers by establishing and tracking design control elements: user needs, design inputs, design processes, design outputs, and device documentation.

ESTABLISH COMPLIANT DESIGN CONTROLS

Medical Device Compliance Team

Medical device companies know that effective design controls lead to high-quality products. With Arena, your product teams can establish, document, and follow compliant design controls. This enables teamwide visibility into your product and quality records. Arena QMS provides the necessary design controls to help you deliver innovative, compliant medical products fast.

“We incorporate risk management throughout the design controls process per 21 CFR Part 820.30. Risk management starts early in the design process, when user needs and design inputs are defined. This early identification of risks helps us manage and deliver successful design verification and validation results.”
