4. MasterControl’s strategy to speed up validationMasterControl officials are touting cloud-based software-as-a-service as a way for medical device manufacturers to speed up validation processes. Their first validation excellence tool (VxT) involves risk-based software validation.
The VxT — which MasterControl (Salt Lake City) showed off last week at MD&M West in Anaheim, Calif. — is a value-add on top of MasterCloud’s software solutions. It is meant to help device makers more quickly meet FDA mandates that require validation of software used for designing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, storing and more of medical devices.
