Delivering a new product to the market needs a strong collaboration platform to ensure consistency along the development and production time. Medical device manufacturers must manage complex collaboration involving internal and external teams of prospects, customers, suppliers and partners from the start of the project to launch and post launch so that product market success can be sustained throughout its lifecycle.
Medical device organizations must concentrate critical resources on the most profitable projects while standardizing on business processes across the extended enterprise. Dassault Systèmes (DS)' solution for Enterprise Project Management provides project dashboards that give real-time visibility into a project’s status in terms of schedule, resources, process and costs. This collaborative project management solution dramatically increases the productivity of globally distributed users by executing projects and programs with real-time information that is updated automatically through direct links to business processes, tasks, documents, deliverables and other data sources.
DS' solution enables companies to optimize staffing plans with real-time utilization reports to assess availability of key skills across all projects and drive a phased-base decision making process using best-in-class process templates with predefined phases, gates and milestones. The increase of product development complexity combined with a more widely distributed product development team has fueled the demand for solutions that will help companies in their transition from traditional linear processes to solutions that support parallel development. Advances in data collection, collaboration, and analysis tools allow teams to work together and share information more effectively.
ENOVIA gives us a common and consistent information management process, providing access to product information anywhere, anytime and facilitating collaboration between distributed R&D facilities, factories and sales channels.
