Abstract. This paper outlines a software process improvement (SPI) framework to ensure regulatory compliance for the software developed in medical devices. The software framework introduced here (known as MedeSPI – Medical Devices Software Process Improvement) will address an opportunity to integrate the regulatory issues and process improvement mechanisms in order to achieve improved software processes within a number of process areas that are critical to the development of software for medical devices [3]. The paper then describes in detail how the goals, practices and capability levels for the risk management process area within the MedeSPI framework have been developed.
