Replay Webinar About our Speaker

Do any of the following statements sound a little too familiar?
  • A globally competitive market demands medical device products of increased complexity and all product information must be managed completely throughout the lifecycle.
  • Widely varying regulatory requirements between different global markets increase the exposure for non-compliance without proper traceability.
  • Emerging MBSE (model-based systems engineering) and other best practices prevalent in other industries must be embraced by medical device product development teams to speed time-to-market and profitability.
  • The increased real-time knowledge of medical device consumers, both before and after purchase, presents risk as well as opportunity for developing competitive products and/or business models.
  • Medical device companies would benefit from best practice and lessons-learned knowledge in PLM from industry peers.

Whether entering into the medical device market as a startup or sustaining global competitiveness as an established firm, medical and healthcare device manufacturers now face a number of market threats and challenges. As devices become more complex, connected and intelligent, and regulatory compliance varies across different global markets, firms must embrace new best-practice strategies and trending technologies in developing and managing products throughout their lifecycle.

This webinar will outline what CIMdata has observed, through its clients both inside and outside of the industry, as the key obstacles to a company’s competitiveness in developing complex products in a highly regulated industry and show how they can be addressed by PLM.

This complimentary webinar will be the first in a 2018 series for CIMdata’s Medical Device PLM Action Group (MD PAG). It will actively elicit feedback, observations and questions from the attendees, some of which will be addressed or commented on during the webinar, but primarily to use as subject matter for three follow on webinars which will be conducted as interactive forums for the MD PAG members.

What will I learn by attending this webinar?

  • You will learn about potential solutions to your business challenges that can be met by introducing PLM best practices.
  • You will learn about cross-industry solutions to similar business challenges that are being met by PLM outside of the Medical Device industry.
  • You will gain an understanding of what are others doing and whether or not you are on-target with your PLM initiative.
  • You will learn more about technology innovations that are new to market and may have an impact on your PLM program.

Who should attend?

  • Senior medical device product development and engineering management
  • Senior medical device executives
  • Medical device PLM project and program managers
  • Medical device PLM solution architects and planners

During the webinar you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions about the topics discussed.
