Our standard offer here is IEC 62304 compliant software development for any software safety classification, including: A, B, C or their US equivalents. We deliver such a service by providing fully staffed, self-managing software development teams.

Here we use IEC 62304, ISO 13485, and ISO 14971 compliant Software Development Life Cycle. The Design and Development project is usually executed under Pro4People Quality Management System, which has been certified for that purpose with the requirements of ISO 13485 standard.
In this area we follow Agile/Maturity approach, which enables the adaptability and exploratory nature of Agile methodologies enriched with already proven as well as continuously improved SDLC processes along the Maturity dimension.

Quality Management System Scope
Our SDLC service operates under the ISO 13485 certified Quality Management System. Our QMS has been certified by Lloyd’s Register. The scope of our certification is defined as
“Design and Development and Service Provision of medical device and health software for medical device manufacturers.”
Our QMS also fulfils the requirements of ISO 14971 – Medical Devices – Application of risk management to medical device standard. Even though we usually follow Clients’ Risk Management System (RMS) in Design and Development, we do make sure that every team member is aware of, and competent in that domain, crucial for medical device development.
Pro4People’s QMS operates on ins2outs platform – an online Organization Management System used in essence to execute daily project activities. Consequently our Clients work together with us on the platform, and have all the required documents and records delivered at the agreed project milestones. Additionally, our Information Security Management System is also certified with the requirements of ISO 27001 standard.

Initiating Design and Development
At the beginning of Design and Development project, it is very important to mutually understand the Client’s and also Pro4People’s QMS boundaries, and agree on where they should be drawn. For that reason, whenever we start a new project, we initiate it with around 2-week pre-development phase. It aims at agreeing which QMS, and in what scope, shall be followed, as well as preparing formal design and development inputs. From Pro4People perspective therefore, all options are possible in respect of the process tailoring:
- Working fully under Client’s QMS
- Working in Design and Development under Pro4People’s QMS
- Any hybrid solution of the above two options
Such a decision is then documented in Process Tailoring activity, consequently allowing each side of Product Life Cycle to understand its responsibilities and resulting deliverables.
Design and Development
We manage Design and Development phase as a project. In effect Pro4People will deliver a fully staffed project team capable of developing modern software solutions for medical devices. The team will be fully responsible for both technical as well as regulatory aspects of a project. The project is divided into formal milestones in order to control its progress and compliance with ISO 13485 requirements.
For example, at the Version Verified milestone, a full product SDLC Release Package together with all documents and records from product Verification is delivered to Product Team as the output of Design and Development activities.
Design and Development ends when the Client finishes and approves Validation of the released and securely transferred product release package. As an outcome, Pro4People delivers a working engineering solution as well as all documents and records required to prove the following applicable SDLC / QMS processes.
