    04.19.17

    When one hears the phrase “Operational Excellence” they think process improvement or increasing efficiency in the process. But most companies struggle to turn their Operational Excellence (OPEX) vision into reality. What happens AFTER you design your OPEX program? How do you improve effectiveness and efficiency while maintaining compliance and reducing risk?

     In this session we look to answer those questions by demonstrating how your refined process can translate into an electronic system that can help turn vision into reality.

    Risk Management Outside Your Four Walls: Implementing Risk Strategies for the Supply Chain

    11.30.16

    The dynamic of business today is more complex than ever before. Globalization, product competition and the increasing of the supplier network has driven companies into far more directions. In addition, regulatory requirements are driving organizations to foster more traceability on product throughout the supply-chain. All this, and the visibility into compliance is greater than ever. How can companies navigate the complexities within their organization, while keeping a strong level of compliance?

    The key becomes one of risk-based thinking in supply chain quality. In this webinar, we will look at the various elements that focus on the ability to connect with the supply chain, while maintaining an acceptable level of regulatory compliance. We will look at the risk management activities that organizations are employing to create greater visibility and control in supplier management, building better relationships, and encouraging the supply chain to participate in the quality management process, while limiting risks along the way.

    You will learn:

    • About the current dynamic of business, and how the supply chain is factoring into the equation
    • The current risks associated with the supply chain
    • Current mitigation strategies to connect the supply chain to quality
    • Review the concept of leveraging risk-based thinking and risk management to supplier management
    • Look at the ways in which you can streamline and create efficiencies in supplier involvement in your process

    Viewers of this presentation will gain insights into the business tools more often associated with larger firms that are available to small to medium enterprise medical device manufacturers. Educating key personnel from medical device SMEs will help them move closer to establishing four goals for successfully enhancing their capabilities—operational efficiency, improved access to data, flexibility/agility, and enhancing the customer experience. Equipped with this information, medical device SMEs will stand out within their competitive landscape, ultimately becoming a preferred supplier to their customers.

    Topics covered in this presentation will include:

    • Lean Manufacturing—Streamlining the production of a product, the implementation of lean strategies within the medical device space offers gains in assembly, manufacturing, shipping, and ultimately, time to market. With these time benefits come cost savings and enhanced efficiencies for the device manufacturer.
    • ERP Software Solutions—This software system offers users a centralized overview solution that enables the management of customer relationships, manufacturing operations, supply chain, and human capital. ERP offerings are often scalable and flexible enough to support long-term growth, while implementation can often be accommodating enough for most budgets.
    • Supply Chain Management—As medical device OEMs look to reduce the number of suppliers with which they are working, ensuring they maintain relationships with the very best ones is critical. This selection process can be tricky and one misstep could create significant delays for the OEM. Find out how best to “trim the fat” from the supply chain while enhancing the connection with the best partners.
