Project Challenges

Developing the automation to produce a quality product is critical to the medical device industry. Speed to market is paramount so the scheduled delivery of product was moved earlier at every opportunity.

As a medical device with sterile components, they needed a strong validation team to quickly move them through start-up and into production.

Developing the automation to produce a quality product is critical to the medical device industry. Speed to market is paramount so the scheduled delivery of product was moved earlier at every opportunity.

The client needed an automation manager who would assure that each assembly machine achieved the required OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness), understood what it took to reliably test components, and had the knowledge of what made vision systems reliable.
