Read Frequently Asked Questions

This session will highlight typical manufacturer pitfalls in designing user studies and usability tests as well as common mistakes and omissions regarding use error in PMA and 510K submissions.

Description

This webinar will apply to manufacturers with devices that require user-device interactions to set-up, operate, and maintain the device.

Managing risks of use related hazards should begin early in the design cycle and continue through post market launch activities. The Design Controls process of the Quality System Regulation forms the baseline for design activities and risk management. In this webinar session, we will identify and describe human factors methods that can be used to manage use error risks at the earliest design stages We will also highlight typical manufacturer pitfalls in designing user studies and usability tests as well as common mistakes and omissions regarding use error in PMA and 510K submissions. This session will go beyond the previous session in terms of providing more detail about individual methodologies.

Areas Covered in the seminar:

  • Description of common best practices in task analysis and test and evaluation methods.
  • Typical examples of user profiles, usage scenarios, and environmental analyses performed in Design Input.
  • Protocol development for user interaction evaluations and usability testing.
  • The FDA hierarchy of preferred use error mitigation strategies.
  • Manufacturer common mistakes when submitting usability and user study data to the FDA.
  • Augmenting typical risk analyses with use error risks identified through test and evaluation methods.

Who will benefit:


This webinar will apply to manufacturers with devices that require user-device interactions to set-up, operate, and maintain the device. Focus is on individual activities within the Design Controls process that are considered best practices in use error management. Job functions that will benefit include:
  • Research and Development functions: software, mechanical, industrial design, systems engineering.
  • Regulatory and Compliance: presenting use error analysis and investigation clearly and comprehensively to regulatory bodies.
  • Quality System Management teams
  • Risk Management teams
