Featured Presentation: Agile for Safety-Critical Systems: A Process for Safety and Quality in Medical Devices

Speaker: Brian Shoemaker, ShoeBar Associates, Co-Author of 'Agile Methods for Safety-Critical Systems: A Primer Using Medical Device Examples'

In their recent book, Brian Shoemaker and his co-author Nancy Van Schooenderwoert review the basic principles of Agile to show how to apply these principles in a safety-critical context such as medical devices.

In his talk, Brian will explain how the philosophy of Agile is consistent with, and beneficial for, the regulatory requirements of safety-critical development. He will also expand on the guidance provided in the AAMI TIR 45 technical report on the use of Agile for medical device hardware and software.
