REV.1 Engineering: 2x Faster Medical Device Development

The Multiplier Effect of the Time Value of Cash Flow

It’s perhaps the most commonly heard value proposition in the contract engineering market space…we’re faster than our competition. What isn’t necessarily offered up is faster at what? There’s a place for fast, but not at the expense of fastidiousness. Speed of engineering alone is not enough. The driving goal in today’s highly dynamic marketplace should be speed to cash flow, and that involves a lot more than just engineering. Time bites into medical device companies […]

Typical turnaround times can run from 2 to 6 weeks, depending on the complexity of the piece. And then what happens if the outside machining company gets it wrong – or if it turns out your specifications were not exactly right? Then you are waiting several more weeks to get a part you needed at […]

REV.1 Engineering 3 Pillars of Medical Device Development

The Third Pillar of Medical Device Engineering: Compliance Certification

So far we’ve discussed two of the three key pillars of quality medical device engineering: Design Control and Quality System. The third, Compliance Certification, is the audit of the design controls and quality system, and is therefore heavily dependent on successful implementation of the first two pillars. Many medical device companies feel anxious when it comes to certification – and for good reason. While everyone is aware of the long check list the certification agencies […]
