The Healthcare Track at the 2017 INCOSE International Workshop focused on applications of systems engineering and model-based systems engineering (MBSE) to medical technology.  The technical sessions on Sunday and Monday addressed systems engineering methods for medical device compliance, MBSE methods to capture the clinical environment for usability studies, and tailoring systems techniques to fit the needs of small development teams.  In addition, there was a range of meetings developing the strategy and events for 2017 and 2018.

SATURDAY, January 28 [Afternoon session]

•Systems Engineering in Healthcare: Reports by Working Group Members and Partners

Outreach to all INCOSE members about Healthcare Working Group events and activities – presentations by HWG leaders on recent/upcoming events, working group work streams, and key outreach activities plus presentations by key members and partner organizations.


SUNDAY, January 29 [Morning session]

MBSE applied to medical devices for compliance and risk management

Presentations to provide the compliance and standards perspective followed by presentations on current/emerging tools and techniques to make MBSE (and systems engineering in general) relevant to achieving compliance and producing critical elements of the 510(K) submission.


SUNDAY, January 29 [Afternoon session]

MBSE applied to capturing the clinical environment for medical devices

Report out and discussion of the three approaches the Healthcare MBSE Challenge Team is using to model medical devices in the context of clinical operations; emphasis is on MBSE support to usability analyses and input to design requirements and design risk management.


MONDAY, January 30 [Morning session]

Systems engineering framework for small project development teams
    This session will use the existing tutorial on ISO 29110 as a starting point to begin building a systems engineering framework suitable for use by small teams developing medical devices; concepts addressed support small project teams whether they are in large or small companies.
