Software development plan : development methods

#1
Hello,

In chapter 5.1.4 of IEC 62304 , it is said that software development methods must be referenced.
This term is quite fuzzy for me . I did not find any example. Does it means , for example, Object Oriented Programming ?

Thanks.

Hello, and welcome to the Cove. In fact 62304 is not very clear on this (sometimes it's difficult for distinguishing between methods and tools (and life cycle model), for example, and there's no definition for either), however, in general, the mentioned methods are related to things like like what is described here:

12 Best Software Development Methodologies with Pros & Cons

Note that some, such as waterfall and spiral, are more like cycle models, but without a clear definition, it's difficult to separate them.
