With increased complexity and changing global supply chains and regulatory landscape, medical device companies are under pressure to better analyze data and improve processes. There is a vast amount of manual data collected on a daily basis, and some companies are still using paper-based processes in manufacturing. Being able to turn data into intelligence to support better quality products is important. So is having closed-loop manufacturing (CLM) capabilities.
Closed-loop manufacturing is the key to cost reduction and can help drive innovation. Gain a competitive edge with new product innovation and reduce the amount of product recalls.
Watch the on-demand webinar to learn how to use closed-loop manufacturing to your advantage.
Is it possible for manufacturers to deliver healthcare advances while improving cost reduction and recall without compromising quality? With the help of the comprehensive digital twin and a flexible ecosystem, it is. This is where closed-loop manufacturing comes into play. Closed-loop manufacturing is the seamless integration of three major domains: product lifecycle management, enterprise resource planning and manufacturing operations management. Medical device compliance can be made easier by integrating CLM.
When it comes to being proactive, manufacturers must take a comprehensive digital approach to manufacturing. This means improving sustainability by optimizing resources and turning paper-based processes into paperless processes. Manufacturers need to evaluate their activities and eliminate non-value activities to improve time to market.
Critical compliance events like recalls, FDA 483s, warning letters, consent decrees, import bans and consumer litigation cost manufacturers an estimated 2.5% of annual sales. Class II medical devices are the most recalled product category from the FDA. While product recalls happen, wouldn’t it be nice to reduce the number of recalls on your devices? Medical device companies need to embrace innovation, digitalization and connectivity. It’s time to shift away from responding to disruptions and focus on proactively preventing issues in their processes. Data can help inform this decision and closed-loop manufacturing can make this transition possible.
