Datex-Ohmeda is the world’s leading supplier of anesthesia systems, equipment, and services and an emerging leader in critical care. The division’s wide range of products includes patient monitors and networked systems for anesthesia, intensive care units and sub-acute care, as well as anesthesia machines, ventilators, and drug delivery systems
While evaluating and selecting a product collaboration and data management solution had long been a goal of both the Datex and Ohmeda companies, the merger of the two companies under Instrumentarium brought to a head the need to bring paper-based design and development processes online to increase efficiencies and reduce costs.
Dassault Systèmes Response
A key objective for Datex-Ohmeda was to eliminate data re-entry while working within the structures already familiar to the company’s designers. With eMatrix, Datex-Ohmeda was able to create very simple file transfer protocols to pass design and bill-of-material (BOM) information between Innoveda (eCAD), Pro/ENGINEER (mCAD) and eMatrix to simplify design and create relationships and structures for engineering and mechanical assembly.
• Streamlining Design Processes Tight integration between eMatrix, Innoveda and Pro/ENGINEER eliminated the time and expense of common data reentry errors. • More Efficient Production By getting the right information to the right people at the right time through a tight integration with Oracle Manufacturing, eMatrix speeds design, development and production. • Meeting Global Regulations eMatrix enables Datex-Ohmeda to more easily manage documentation to meet global regulations set by the FDA and EU Directives.
