Instrument worst case identification for cleaning and sterilization: templates

Hello,
I'm working on creating templates internally that can be used to evaluate different features of (US) class I and II instruments to determine the worst case for reprocessing. The aim is that we can validate master devices that represent worst case and have a clear template to use in the future, in case of a new instrument or design change, that we can evaluate whether it is creates a new worst case. I'm including worst case features in the templates from relevant norms, FDA guidances, and input from our test lab (like blind holes, o-rings, sleeves, etc.) but concerned I might be overlooking something. Is anyone aware of a pre-existing template? I've checked the threads for similar questions but haven't come across anything.
Thanks in advance for any input.
