CT Scanners Performance Software Drives the Development of Groundbreaking Healthcare Technology

The Problem

A top healthcare manufacturer needed help developing software for breakthrough technology and sought a model-based development partner. Based on a referral, the manufacturer considered Performance Software. Performance Software offered a competitive fixed price contract to complete a percentage of the project’s development and testing requirements. The manufacturer accepted the contract, and the project was underway to bring to market, technology with the potential to revolutionize scanning in the healthcare industry.

The Solution

Performance Software joined the client’s program with 4 to 6 onsite development resources working with the client’s resources and other vendors that were contracted to provide software development and testing assistance. Within a few weeks, Performance Software was able to deploy an experienced team that immediately helped to maintain the client’s release schedule by helping complete their requirements and ramping up the software development team.

Within a few months, the client realized the superior effort of the Performance Team and replaced the other sub-contract labor and engineering service providers with additional Performance Software resources. The Performance Software team grew to a total of 10 resources. Performance Software was the only team to remain throughout the project.

Late in the project, the client modified the project requirements to include several new work scope items. The additional work included subsystem development support, test creation and execution, and Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) documentation. Performance Software was also requested to assist the client with completing their requirements and stepped in on a rush basis to maintain the client’s release schedule.

The Results

  • Performance Software saved the client $360,000 in total program cost.
  • The client’s schedule was pulled in by 4 months and met every schedule deadline.
  • The client obtained U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance for this innovative technology.
