How can you employ the medical device CAPA best practices in your bug tracking?

May 5th, 2020 Posted by ALM 2.0, CAPA, Defect Tracking, Software Lifecycle Management 0 thoughts on “How can you employ the medical device CAPA best practices in your bug tracking?”

How can you apply some of the best practices of a medical device in your non-regulated product? And does it worth the efforts?

In this post, I will describe just a small tweak in your bug form, that will make a huge difference in your bug management and the quality of your product, with just a small tweak of adding “Root Cause” field to your bug form. 


It will make your team THINK. Check it out

What is CAPA

A CAPA stands for  Corrective And Preventive Actions. To make it short – when something bad happens – you are supposed to do some investigation, understand the root cause of what happened, when, why, and come up with a plan of what you need to do in order to fix (Corrective) and to prevent it in the future (Preventive).

Adding Root Cause

Well, there is plenty you can do. But as I said, in this article, I would only discuss a small tweak: Add “Root Cause” field to you bug form


Because it will force your team to THINK. That’s it, no more. And when they think – this is when you start digging gold

Orcanos use case

I will explain using a true use case of Orcanos


Root cause starts with an investigation


We got a timeout message for our dynamic filter. It happened to one of our customers, so you can imagine, it didn’t look too good…as we had to deliver a quick fix.

A bug was reported and fixed, but the root cause field, which is mandatory inOrcanos, said something like “Problem in the query”. So we started an investigation to dig the REAL root cause.


The developer says “It was due to a wrong query to the database”, we ask: WHY? Why did it happen? “Well, It happened because we fixed the filtering mechanism, and the original query didn’t fit”. Oh really? Tell me more. “We have changed the filtering mechanism but didn’t change it in all the places we use this filtering mechanism, such as the dynamic filter”


Because…well, this is a sensitive area, and I was under pressure to deliver and didn’t have the time to go to all places and fix it. It would require lots of testing, and put us in high risk…”
So…Are there more places to check?

“Well…yes…but it only happens when the response has thousands of records…”

So, it will continue to happen, and if I understand correctly, we might have an issue in more places

“..we need to check…”

The decision was NOT GOOD since the problem was not fully resolved

But – the decision was GOOD in terms of reducing risk in a frozen environment and affecting more customers, as this rarely happened


So what could you do better?

“Well, I could fix the bug for immediate resolution, and raise another bug, or task for an overall fix in the next release, I guess…”


It goes and on for more corrective and preventive actions, changing our working instructions, and emphasis these topics on our weekly meetings. 

All because of one investigation. 

So you see, It’s more of a state of mind than a technical stuff


See that sometimes the root cause can reveal much more than just a code mistake. It teaches you about how your team thinks, and what drives them in their decision making, sometimes without seeing the big picture. 

These investigations make them and you to think in a wider scope and become EXCELLENT!

Orcanos QMS: Regulation Compliance & Governance Engine

August 7th, 2017 Posted by Document control, IEC 62304, IEC60601, ISO 13485, ISO 14971, regulation compliance 0 thoughts on “Orcanos QMS: Regulation Compliance & Governance Engine”

Orcanos is about to launch its QMS-Regulation-Compliance engine as part of Orcanos integrated ALM and Quality Management Software System.


Compliance best practices lie at the heart of all standards-based regulations and good quality management, such as ISO 14971, IEC 62304 and ISO 13485. However, it is a challenge to keep compliance without electronic QMS, or using traditional ALM tools, as most of them are R&D driven, and lack the support of the quality management software system. Compliance remains a leading concern for regulated industries such as Medical Device, Pharma and automotive.

Orcanos QMS Compliance engine

The powerful new capabilities of Orcanos Compliance Engine would simplify the way companies govern and control quality and regulations, and will provide a “Virtual Auditor” that would scan the project data in respect for specific industry regulation, and quality best practice, such as compliance with ISO 14971, IEC 62304 and ISO 13485 and more.

Orcanos QMS Compliance Engine is a flexible tool that allows companies define any regulation in a simple Excel or Google Sheet, defining the standard, section, classification in case of medical device (CLASS I, II, III), Remediation, and many other parameters, ans then import these regulations into Orcanos ALM and QMS platform and connect it to their projects records.

Orcanos QMS Compliance Engine then scans project data based on the specific regulations, and specific logic attached to it, and shows the faults in a graphical presentation. Together with Orcanos dashboard and notification mechanism we provide quite a good control and monitoring platform

Defining a compliance audit item

Define any compliance audit, setup and customize each compliance item

Compliance Audit

Running a compliance audit check

This is an example of an “Virtual Auditor” that inspects the compliance of specific product with the ISO 14971.

ORCANOS Deploys Google Material Design for Orcanos ALM 2017 UI / UX

November 18th, 2016 Posted by Software Lifecycle Management 0 thoughts on “ORCANOS Deploys Google Material Design for Orcanos ALM 2017 UI / UX”

All about our users…


Comply with Google Material Design to create a visual language that synthesizes classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science

Well, in other words – we want to make our end user feel comfortable with Orcanos technology

Material is the metaphor

A material metaphor is the unifying theory of a rationalized space and a system of motion. The material is grounded in tactile reality, inspired by the study of paper and ink, yet technologically advanced and open to imagination and magic.

Surfaces and edges of the material provide visual cues that are grounded in reality. The use of familiar tactile attributes helps users quickly understand affordances. Yet the flexibility of the material creates new affordances that supercede those in the physical world, without breaking the rules of physics.

The fundamentals of light, surface, and movement are key to conveying how objects move, interact, and exist in space and in relation to each other. Realistic lighting shows seams, divides space, and indicates moving parts.

Ref: From Google Material Design


To get new users up and running quickly is a real challenge. Orcanos invested in building on-boarding wizard, that based on industry sector and needs, provides templates and how-to’s to start with. These templates are based on Orcanos 12 year extensive experience with ALM and Quality procedures.

Right from the beginning, the on-boarding UI was detailed to assure user adoption and good experience.

orcanos software onboarding



Main screen colors & structure are adjusted in a way so user that spends hours in front of the computer would feel comfortable. So relaxing colors, minimize the controls on each screen




Material takes cues from contemporary architecture, road signs, pavement marking tape, and athletic courts. Color should be unexpected and vibrant.

This color palette comprises primary and accent colors that can be used for illustration or to develop your brand colors. They’ve been designed to work harmoniously with each other. The color palette starts with primary colors and fills in the spectrum to create a complete and usable palette for Android, Web, and iOS. Google suggests using the 500 colors as the primary colors in your app and the other colors as accents colors.

Themes enable consistent app styling through surface shades, shadow depth, and ink opacity.

orcanos software dashboard colors


Just so not everything is squeezed too much…lot of space is “lost” so user is not overwhelm with information

orcanos dashboard spaces


UI styling is based on CSS files rather than images to make Orcanos faster and robust


Every pixel counts…



Minimize number of icons, colors

orcanos software - icons


Define scrollable area so user remains on the same position always






Spacious list views, floating buttons

orcanos software - work items









Easily get your data using Orcanos tools:

Product tree, Search, Starred items list, Recent items list, Deleted item list


Dashboard panels


List views

orcanos software - work items

Easily navigate through work items path



If user prefers to have less spaces, he can easily switch from Comfortable mode to Cozy or Compact




All modules are accessible within one click

ALM (Product tree), Document Control (QMS), Service Center and e-sign (part 11)





Manage products, projects hierarchically, using Orcanos work items and traceability tool



Setup your FMEA Risk Management according your SOP within minutes



Orcanos service center to manage customer service calls, and trace them back to R&D or Quality Control



Hierarchic and intuitive Document Control, fully 21 CFR Part 11 compliant




Simple and powerful test management tool, as part of Orcanos ALM system




Creating projects, users, permissions and system settings and customization was never so easy





ORCANOS revamps user interface with a new Google Material Design experience

October 26th, 2016 Posted by Software Lifecycle Management 0 thoughts on “ORCANOS revamps user interface with a new Google Material Design experience”

ORCANOS revamps user interface with a new Google Material Design experience, to support its 2017 Adaptive ALM Platform

Rarely that a software company gets an opportunity to work on something that is a game changer. Something risky but meaningful. So we are now presenting for the first time Orcanos Adaptive ALM Platform.


ORCANOS is a leading provider in ALM and quality control, serving clients around the globe, and expertise in medical device. Understanding the particular needs of our customers is essential for a bootstrap organization, attempting to contend with huge ALM vendors.

So, for the question what do our clients need, we concluded that they need a modern, and clean user interface, and ONE STOP SHOP to manage their R&D/QA/RA activities.

ALM is one stop shop for R&D, but what about Quality? what about regulation? and how can one system manage everything in one place? and make it simple enough for the end user, that can be anyone from executive, developer, QA/RA or a tester?

And one more thing. There is no such thing as a generic, one-size ALM. Companies are different. testing, quality procedures and regulations requirements are different in each sector. This is why Orcanos came up with the Adaptive ALM platform.

It doesn’t matter if our customer is a 3 people startup developing the next medical device prototype in their garage, or a well established organisation, with well-established R&D department and quality procedures.

So after listening, studying, and getting all of the feedback, Orcanos put together a completely new ALM experience that is going to accelerate adoption of our users, submit to their industries or sectors. And we’re talking about a completely new user experience, not just colors and fonts tweaks.

Orcanos Adaptive ALM Cloud solution is available for evaluation and pilot starting January 2017, and is expected to be generally available in April 2017.

ברכות לארגו מדיקל: קיבלה אישור ה-FDA למערכת ה-REWALK תוך שימוש במערכת QPack להפקת מסמכי ההגשה

המערכת מאפשרת למשותקים לעמוד וללכת עצמאית; האישור צפוי לעזור לחברה לממש את תוכניותיה לצאת להנפקה או להימכר במחיר גבוה

חברת ארגו מדיקל הודיעה היום (ו’) על קבלת אישור ה-FDA למערכת ה-REWALK של החברה המאפשרת למשותקים ללכת בעזרתה. האישור יאפשר למשותקים להתנהל בעזרתו בבתיהם, דבר שעד עכשיו התאפשר להם רק במרכזי שיקום. על פי הערכות, צפוי האישור לעזור לחברה לממש את תוכניות ההנפקה שלה או לחלופין להימכר במחיר גבוה. את תהליך ההגשה ניהל הצוות הישראלי בשיתוף עם הצוות האמריקאי כאשר מערכת QPack Medical של חברת אורקנוס מנהלת את הפקת כל מסמכי הוואלידאציה בהגשה הכוללים שינוים וטבלאות Traceability אוטומטים ללא מגע אדם.

במרץ האחרון חשף “כלכליסט” את כוונת ארגו מדיקל לצאת להנפקה בנאסדק לפי שווי של 250 מיליון דולר – שווי שייתכן שאף יהיה גבוה יותר אם תצא החברה להנפקה בקרוב.

מערכת QPack מדיקל הינה מערכת לניהול תהליכי פיתוח ואיכות לחברות ויצרנים של מכור רפואי היחידה בעולם המכילה את המספר הרב ביותר של תהליכים במערכת אחת איטגראטיבית.לאחרונה אורקנוס שיחררה את דור 7 של המערכת והוסיפה שני תהליכים מרכזים בחיי מוצר רפאוי. האחת מערכת לניהול מסמכים הכוללת חתימות אלקטרוניות בכפוף לתנאים של 21 CFR Part 11 והשניה מערכת לניהול תלונות לקוח בהתאם לתקן ISO 13485 פסקה 4.2. שני  תוספות אלה מאפשרות לאורקנוס לטפל גם בחברות קטנות מאד שהפיתוח ביחס לשינויים בתהליכי האיכות קטן יותר. כמו כן ארקנווס הוסיפה רכיב מרכזי חדש שמאפשר לנהל עבודה מול קבלני משנה חיצונים ושינויים במסמכי הוואלידאציה דבר שחוסך זמן סינכרון.
