The plans shall be reviewed, updated, and approved as design and development evolves.
!Attention Points

* <<tiddler [[Product Proposal]]>>
* Management should document the identification of medical devices subject to design controls.
** Indicated by dates when the design efforts where initiated
** If there are devices that predate design control regulatations
** New devices since regulations
** Modified devices since regulations
* For each device the elements of design planning should be described.
!Management responsibilities
* Management should procedurally identify appropriate design control departments and activities
** Including design and development planning
** Review responsibilities for each department and activity
** May be 1 page or complex document depending on project size
* Management should identify project activities, stages, departments and participants
