In any manufacturing sector, standardization of assembly processes and sequencing is a critical tool for honing processes, improving efficiency and consistency, and reducing error rates. It is especially critical for today’s increasingly complex and customized medical devices.
That customization presents significant challenges. For each variation in a prosthetic or pacemaker, there are additional pain points to address. Standardization becomes increasingly elusive, and new variables are introduced that make achieving the high quality standards required of medical devices that much more difficult.
