Process Improvement"The easiest of all wastes and the hardest to correct is the waste of time, because wasted time does not litter the floor like wasted material…" -Henry Ford
Are your overly prescriptive quality system processes stagnating your development efforts? Innovation and speed to market are the lifeblood of any medical device company. The challenge lies in balancing an environment of healthy innovation, speed of development, and streamlined manufacturing processes with tightened budgets and regulatory compliance.
Can any of these elements be achieved without neglecting one or more of the other elements?
We say YES, but only with well-conceived, highly efficient processes in place. We are experts at implementing quality management systems that support rapid development, just-in-time and lean manufacturing, while achieving compliance to US and international regulatory requirements.
We have a proven record of success in the use and application of quality process improvement techniques such as:
Value Stream Mapping (VSM)
Design of Experiments (DOE)
Just in Time (JIT)
Cost of Quality (COQ)
Voice of Customer (VOC)
