The Software Engineering Institute (CMM) model for Software Capability Maturity (CMM). You can visit the SEI online and obtain their documents at:
Here's a quick overview of the five levels of maturity:
Medical Devices - FDA
DESIGN CONTROL GUIDANCE FOR MEDICAL DEVICE MANUFACTURERS
Guidance for the Content of Premarket Submissions for Software Contained in Medical Devices
Guidance Off-The-Shelf Software Use in Medical Devices
General Principles of Software Validation
21CFR Part 11 - Electronic Records; Electronic Signatures
To make sure you have the most recent information, you can also look at the FDA's site for medical devices at:
In principle, the FDA Design Control requirements for software are roughly equivalent to an SEI CMM rating of 3. Although the FDA does not formally recognize the CMM, the information about Level 3 can be helpful in determining how to meet the design control requirements.
