Evolutionary design is not an excuse to avoid processes or the burdens of regulation. It does, in fact, require more discipline to manage the ambiguity and relies on an unfailing trust in the process. To be successful leading an iterative design process, one must understand the intent of the regulations, a clear idea of how to satisfy the intent through an iterative process, and an ability to deal with uncertainty.

Topics covered include:

  • An overview of an evolutionary design process suitable for medical devices
  • Targeted discussions on human-centered design, software development, and hardware development
  • A focus on rapid prototyping, collaboration, iteration, and feedback
