Bart Reitter, director of QAD Life Sciences knows that the key to working as a medical device manufacturer is to produce safe and effective products that also can offer reasonable returns on investment. This, at times, can be quite a challenge. In order to tackle these challenges, he has written 6 “mantras” for medical device manufacturers listed below:
1. Global Compliance Challenges
It is very difficult to remain compliant with regulatory standards drastically changing from country to country. With a technology solution built around your specific needs, good manufacturing practices can be met efficiently and easily.
2. Manual vs. Automated Processes
Using spreadsheets to track inventory movements, machine settings, and suppliers is a burden that increases error and costs. By leveraging cloud-based ERP, manufacturers can approach 21st century production standards with ease.
3. The Cost Versus Risk Conundrum
Cost vs. Risk is constantly on the minds of medical device manufacturers. Determining the optimal point of risk/cost balance is critical when planning production.
4. Integrating Quality Processes
In order to be in accordance with the FDA, manufactures must have a quality system in place. With enterprise quality management software (EQMS) solutions can integrate quality processes into core business functions.
5. It’s All in the Cloud
With cloud technology, manufactures can have global access to their full strength ERP and EQMS solutions while reducing the challenge of supporting an IT infrastructure.
6. The FDA’s Analysis
Recently, the FDA announced that medical device companies who manage risk by driving quality across the organization are significantly more productive. Which means that integrated cloud ERP and EQMS solutions are the key to having efficient and regulatory-compliant manufacturing processes.
