Medical device manufacturers and their supply chains must get their products to market quickly while facing new technological challenges, global competition, and a myriad of risks. Learn how you can better compete with ever-changing regulations to deliver high-quality products to market.
Medical device manufacturers must establish quality systems to comply with FDA regulations and other standards like ISO 13485. A single, unified quality management system (QMS) to manage documents, SOPs, training records, quality, and product releases increases traceability between all impacted teams. Read how product-centric QMS speeds product launches and reduces compliance risks.
Often small to medium-sized businesses make do with the tools they have to manage their product data. Paper, spreadsheets and email are often used throughout the product development and engineering change management processes. These tools can wreak havoc when product information is released into production.
But there’s no need to settle for inefficient, frustrating product change management. There are other options to help control product information and share changes across the organization and supply chain.
What solution helped a lighting manufacturer reduce engineering change order (ECO) cycle times by 75%, a networking company improve ECO cycle times by 70%, and a digital processing business accelerate time to market by 20%?
The answer? Product lifecycle Management (PLM) software.
The financial benefits and ROI potential of PLM are increasingly recognized by innovative product company executives, especially CFOs, whose role has evolved from “bean counter,” to strategist, to powerful change agent.
In this whitepaper, Arena offers its own proprietary PLM analytics coupled with aggregated ROI metrics derived from third-parties to highlight industry-specific efficiency improvements categorized into three groups: Manufacturing and Internal Operations, Supply Chain Optimization, and Customer Satisfaction.
ROI numbers don’t lie. Read and discover how much your product company can save using Arena PLM to manage your product record.
In the world of product design and manufacturing, the bill of materials (BOM) is a critical product information record for both the engineering and manufacturing teams. Managing BOMs with the wrong tools can cause product errors, delays and compliance failures.
In this whitepaper, we outline the problems with manual BOM management tools like spreadsheets and email and compare them to a dedicated BOM management system.
Manufacturers of complicated electronic products must manage, track and store hundreds — if not thousands — of parts in their product development processes. And every time a new part is added to a company’s library, it can cost $15k in time and effort to qualify and rollout.
That’s serious money. And that’s why choosing the proper part numbering scheme to reference your parts is critical to your manufacturing business’s success. In Arena’s Part Numbering eBook, you’ll learn how to choose the best part numbering scheme for your business.
This white paper provides an overview of manufacturing tools like mechanical computer aided design (MCAD), product data management (PDM), electronic design automation (EDA) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) and describes how to bridge the gap between engineering and manufacturing.
Smart companies know that well disciplined new product introduction (NPI) processes are critical to success. Yet, even these companies can suffer from NPI failure when important projects, policies, and guidelines are haphazardly managed as clumsy manual processes. For a guide to the best practices and solutions that will make your NPI processes smoother, efficient and more cost effective, read this white paper.
