Achieving these requirements is challenging. Operational issues are brought on by the complexity of medical devices, the volume of data that must be tracked, and competitive cost constraints. Moreover, poor coordination between engineering and manufacturing teams can result in communication problems and delays, particularly during the early design phase.
How to overcome challenges in medical device assembly planning
Medical device companies must prepare for the design and installation of new production lines and machines and be adaptable with regard to production capacity if they want to adjust their operations to a market that is changing quickly. Old-fashioned manual procedures are unable to keep up. Using a fully digitalized business process to plan, manage and tweak production is crucial for efficiency.
Bridging data and collaboration in medical device process planning
Ensure digital continuity from design to execution with assembly planning tools for medical device manufacturers by using:
A comprehensive digital twin
Adaptable software tools
An open ecosystem to facilitate interoperability
Take steps toward operational efficiency in your assembly planning processes
The five integral steps of an assembly planning process include bill of materials (BOM) management, process planning, process validation support, electronic work instructions and manufacturing information management.
