The acquisition is expected to strengthen PTC’s closed-loop product lifecycle management offerings by extending the digital thread of product information into downstream enterprise asset management and field service management capabilities.
Mitigating risk of failure is one of the most important disciplines to perform for medical device manufacturers, and for the last couple of years, it has become an increasingly difficult discipline to master.
Bringing design and quality assurance processes together earlier in the device development process can reduce costs and nonconformances, while improving outcomes.
Manufacturers that make custom devices must move beyond conventional engineering practices to an automated and collaborative engineer-to-order process.
CAPA provides visibility into critical product quality characteristics, failures/ non-conformances, and resolutions to these issues for smarter decisions across the global, extended enterprise. With the right solution, design, manufacturing and quality improvement teams can share the same views of the information they need to directly impact Six Sigma and Lean initiatives.
