Safety and reliability as top priority.

The basis for the development of medical devices is good risk management. It must meet required standards, get technical risks under control at an early stage and provide transparency.

PLATO Solutions for Medical Technology

In the product development of medical devices are 4 quality management processes in focus:

  • Design Control
  • Risk management
  • Document management

PLATO e1ns offers a solution package that ensures consistency from requirements to risks to verification and validation. Due to the model-based data model of PLATO e1ns, redundant data or time-consuming data maintenance after changes are a thing of the past.

PLATO e1ns with its extensible method kit also offers the possibility to implement further standards (ISO 60601, ISO 62366 etc.).

PLATO XERI™ Document Management guarantees the systematic and standardized control of documents in your organization.
