FDA and Siemens: Digitalization across the TPLC

The rise of Digitalization! It’s a phrase used across numerous industries, but what does this mean for Medical Device manufacturers in a heavily regulated industry? What are the strategic capabilities for unleashing Speed, Growth, and Agility? How is the FDA responding and supporting automation initiatives? 

Join us on March 3, 2020 for an inspirational event on how digitalization can transform an organization’s Product Design and Production.  Experience this end to end digital journey from virtual design through physical manufacturing and into post-market. See how it can eliminate many of the hidden costs of today’s siloed, error prone, and laborious systems.  Participate in an interactive discussion with the FDA on barriers, value and opportunities to unleash digitalization across the total product lifecycle (TPLC).  This meeting’s objective is to further educate the FDA on “what’s possible”, and will build on the discussions that took place during the prior October 2018 FDA Smart Manufacturing meeting hosted by Siemens at MxD (https://mxdusa.org/).  Cisco Vicenty (FDA) and Jason Spiegler (Siemens) will be co-facilitate again.

Seminar Objectives:

  • "What’s Possible" for Digitalization of Advanced Design and Manufacturing across the TPLC.
  • Enable meaningful discussion within FDA on considerations for supporting Digitalization of Advanced Design and Manufacturing.
  • Enhance collaboration with Industry and FDA, to uncover opportunities to help drive positive industry transformation.
