Pressure is building up in the medical device industry. The global market, with demographic differences across global economies, is growing, but so too, is the competition. Small, agile startups, as well as massive global organizations make for fierce competition.
What’s more, regulations vary across regions, and the demand for personalization is increasing. So how can you manufacture quality, compliant medical devices at competitive prices with varying lot sizes?
The answer is to harness the power of smart manufacturing with operational excellence in the medical industry.
We’ve put together a short ebook to tell you more about the digital way forward for medical device manufacturers. Join our community and get the ebook for free, below.
Go beyond traditional manufacturing execution systems (MES) for medical devices with operational excellence
It goes without saying that medical devices need to be of an outstanding quality to meet both customer expectations and tight regulatory control. And yet value-based healthcare and cost pressure across the industry make it increasingly difficult to remain profitable and competitive. The market is global, both in terms of demand and supply, and collaboration and coordination can be required across geographically disperse sites. The Internet of Things provides control of devices but is also adding to an increasing flow of data. So, it is no surprise that even seasoned industry professionals can sometimes feel lost when faced with the increasing array of technologies to address these points.
We have developed operational excellence for medical devices (OEMD) specifically to deal with these issues by harnessing the full power of digital systems for manufacturing expanding beyond manufacturing execution systems (MES) for medical devices. OEMD provides a wide range of solutions to the kind of problems set out above and turns them into opportunities to do more, better, and at a lower cost.
Smart manufacturing for medical devices accelerates production and delivery to the market
Digital threads keep diverse actors fully informed and use big data to innovate and improve processes and products. Lead times can be reduced by control and advanced scheduling, and instant feedback means that decisions can be taken faster and flexibility more readily introduced. Product quality can be proactively increased, and compliance consistently enforced.
Digital twins can test the mechanics, physics, electronics and software of devices in order to establish production specifications, and can simulate, schedule and execute production to verify processes, all in a virtual environment, before commissioning expensive production processes.
Smart manufacturing for medical devices with operational excellence changes design, production and delivery of medical devices. It helps MD manufacturing companies advance in the market and gives them the flexibility they need to engage with future therapies.
Improve efficiency, lower costs and meet all requirements with a perfect electronic device history record (eDHR)
This ebook will help you to understand the benefits of using operational excellence for medical devices, given the complexity of current trends. It shows you how the powerful combination of digital twins and a digital thread approach can transform a business into an agile digital enterprise manufacturing higher quality products. It explains how you can meet all regulatory requirements and produce quality medical devices with perfect, paperless electronic device history records (eDHR). You can improve efficiency, keep costs low, reduce the time to market and enhance flexibility, all of which will make your company more competitive and ready for the future.
