As Cathleen Shamieh said, "If you were to ask five experts exactly what systems engineering is, you’d probably get five — maybe even six! — different answers. That’s partly because the term systems engineering is used for several different things and partly because the concept of systems has been morphing for decades, so the term systems engineering has no choice but to morph right along, too!" As such, medical devices are evolving and becoming more complex. In this day and age, there is an ever-increasing demand and need to develop and produce systems that are robust, reliable, high-quality, supportable, cost-effective, and responsive to the needs of the customer or user. And the industry has already started to shift, albeit, slowly. Have you?

Topics covered will include:
  • What does it mean to really take a 'systems' approach to product design development?
  • Effective ways to integrate multi-disciplinary teams of disparate talent to cover a true 'system'
  • Product development lifecycle approaches to truly streamline the design and development process
