Service Benefits
  • Sourcing Qualified Candidates
    • We know San Diego’s Best Test Engineers
    • We are Engineers ourselves – we vet them thoroughly
    • We Save our Clients Time via Qualified Candidates
    • We also provide onsite SW Test Teams so you can Beat Deadlines

Medical Device Software Test Support

  • 3 Options Available
    • Utilize Advantu’s Test Labs
    • Remote Testing Support
    • Onsite Testing Team
  • Improve build turnaround velocity
  • Discover critical defects early
  • Find high severity bugs after software fixes
  • Ramp up quickly with highly experienced professionals
  • R&D and manufacturing documentation exceeds compliance standards
  • Meet realistic project deadlines while enhancing quality and reliability
Software Quality Engineering Process Improvement
  • Establish project needs and resource requirements for maximum effectiveness
  • Conduct gap analysis to determine state of QA program and test readiness
  • Match project requirements with resource skill sets and capabilities
  • Perform requirements decomposition for test plan/cases creation and traceability
  • Scope the project and provide estimates for test preparation, execution & defect management activities
  • Collaborate with business/marketing to ensure test team remains in sync with project requirements
  • Prioritize testing activities guided by prioritized risk assessment of the product and/or system under test
  • Ensure timely reporting of all test execution and defect submittal/closure results
  • Work closely with R&D to support anomalies and impacted area testing
  • At successful test completion provide a thorough report detailing requirements coverage and hazard mitigations

Manufacturing Process Validation / Intended Use Validation (IUV) Support

  • 21 CFR Part 820/ISO 13485:2012 – Validation of a Manufacturing and/or Production Process
    • Installation Qualification (IQ)
      • Ensure all manufacturing processes are validated and operations performed by qualified individuals
        • Basis for IQ are the installation drawings and specifications (with the installation requirements)
        • During this phase, equipment maintenance and calibration schedules & procedures are established
        • Equipment should be calibrated before and after process validation to determine whether equipment remained in calibration during the entire process validation phase
    • Operational Qualification (OQ)
      • Verify the manufacturing process achieves its operational requirements
        • Tests will determine the highest, lowest and medium operating parameters. Use the process parameters to set control limits and action limits – in order to determine whether the process is reproducible
        • Challenge this process by using worst case conditions. If OQ is successful, it validates the process control limits and action levels result in production – that meets predetermined requirements
    • Performance Qualification (PQ)
      • Final phase of the validation process
      • In this phase the equipment will run several times under normal operating conditions and functions will be challenged
      • The purpose of PQ is to demonstrate that the process, under anticipated conditions, consistently (long term) produces a product which meets all predetermined requirements for functionality and safety

Software Quality Testing Support

Challenges Teams Face
  • Poor or ambiguous requirements
  • Unrealistic project schedules due to scope creep
  • Lack of test team productivity and efficiency during early phase of the project
  • Insufficient impact analysis including risk assessment of modified code leading to incomplete regression test coverage
  • Time delays caused by test engineer work stoppage due to application implementation confusion
  • Rushed testing near project deadline causing critical defects to escape to production
