The FDA and other regulators continue to emphasize mature quality assurance practices over baseline compliance activity. This heightened focus, referred to as the Case for Quality, along with globalization, economic factors, and a growing and competitive marketplace, are key factors driving Operational Excellence within the medical device industry. Similarly, greater device complexity and the increased occurrence of safety issues and recalls have heightened the need to enforce quality, efficiency and traceability in manufacturing operations.
Medical device organizations must produce devices using a digitalized manufacturing platform that provides production, supplier and purchasing controls. They must also take advantage of advanced big data product analytics to improve quality, reduce operational costs and mitigate risks.
Our proven Operational Excellence solutions deliver this critical functionality, enabling medical device organizations to excel.
