The Business of Engineering in Medical Device Manufacturing

Medical Device, Medical Device Design, Medical Device Manufacturing & Supply Chain,
  • Friday, May 31, 2019

Medical device manufacturers are struggling to manage the ever-increasing complexity of modern products. They have become systems – sometimes even systems of systems – whose product designs require a mix of hardware, software, electronics and/or firmware. Managing the system view of a product has traditionally been done with relatively simple tools, such as Excel, Access, PowerPoint etc. That simplicity disappears when managing the behavior of “systems of systems”.

To succeed and win against sophisticated competitors, companies must excel at “the business of engineering in medical device manufacturing”, by verifying their system’s behavior and design as products progress through definition, development and the complete post-manufacturing product lifecycle. Otherwise, product quality issues will emerge, putting brands, companies and their stakeholders at risk.

This webinar addresses the way in which robust system behavioral modelling can be integrated with downstream design practices to produce better, safer products. It is intended, through discussion of the latest advancements in system-level thinking, to help inform senior engineering professionals responsible for the cross-discipline lifecycle of their products.
