ARMI | BioFabUSA will attend the ASTM International November 2019 Committee Week. F04 Main Committee / Subcommittee Meetings
The purpose of the workshop is to continue development of a path forward for Committee F04 standards that are principally based on computational methods (e.g. finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics). A number of computational standards exist, and there are a number of active work items related to computational methods, that span multiple subcommittees within F04. With these standards, as well as the recently published ASME V&V40 standard on computational modeling of devices, it is expected that utilization of computational methods in support of medical device development will increase. There is value in ensuring a degree of harmonization of these efforts within ASTM F04 and ASME V&V40. The intent of this workshop is to bring together thought leaders in the medical device modeling and standardization communities to review existing modeling-based standards including the motivation behind their development and current state of their usage, identify common challenges to creation, adoption and/or usage of modeling-based standards, and further develop a strategy for F04 standards in this space in the future.
