Medical Device Manufacturers

Learn how real-time plant floor data can help medical device manufacturers solve critical production challenges. 

Innovate by Leveraging Actionable Data

As a medical device manufacturer, your company faces a unique set of challenges in an industry that demands the highest levels of quality, accuracy, and compliance.

These challenges include strict regulatory requirements, complex manufacturing processes, and increasing pressure to reduce costs and improve efficiency.

To remain competitive and meet these challenges, investing in a solution such as a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can be a game-changer for your business.

Unlock Your Hidden Factory

As a medical device manufacturer, your equipment and machines generate vast amounts of data every day. However, without a system in place to access and analyze this data, it can be challenging to make informed decisions.

An MES system can help you unlock this hidden wealth of data and provide you with real-time visibility into your manufacturing operations.

With this insight, you can make data-driven decisions to optimize your plant’s efficiency, reduce downtime, and enhance quality control.

Don’t let your data go untapped. Unlock your factory’s full potential to gain a competitive edge.

Which production challenges are relevant to your plant? 

An MES or similar solution can improve quality control by monitoring production processes in real-time and collecting critical data for analysis.

It can enhance safety compliance by ensuring that processes are executed according to established safety protocols.

By providing real-time visibility into production processes, an MES can also help minimize downtime, reduce waste, and optimize efficiency.

Ultimately, investing in an MES can help medical device manufacturers remain competitive in a highly regulated industry while maximizing productivity and profitability.

Frequently Asked Questions

How would this fit into what we currently have?

Our solutions can fit greenfield and brownfield situations. What we mean by that is that we can connect to new machines that are just installed on a new network, or with nearly any device or machine that is on a network no matter how new or old the equipment is.

Can a project be done incrementally?

Yes, that’s our preferred method of working on projects. Digital transformation is our strategy, not a single project. Therefore, we prefer to solve challenges one project at a time. We use the Vanilla Scrum project methodology to execute projects. This includes good project planning and requirements definition coming from the waterfall methodology. It also includes an iterative development process with sprint meetings and reviews from the agile development process.

What kind of ROI can we expect from investing in an MES system?

We never work on a project that isn’t going to have ROI. We always evaluate projects for the business problem to solve, the value of that business problem, and ensure that executing the project makes sense. One example is a simple project we did for a chemical company that reaped a 10x ROI in 1 year, which is not unusual for these types of projects.

How do Ectobox projects work?

We follow a logical and best-practice process of Plan, Pilot, Scale. The idea is that one should always:
Plan ahead before taking the first step making sure it’s done right,

  • Run a pilot project to confirm the value of the data, confirm the solution works, and
  • Scale up the solution from there using the plans and learnings to date.

There is a lot more work and thought that goes into the process. If you want to know more feel free to reach out to have a short conversation.

How does pricing work?

Typical initial projects fall between 30-70k. The pricing depends on a number of factors including whether we’re using off-the-shelf solutions (often less expensive) or building custom solutions, whether we can connect to a software, PLC, or controller; and the type of business challenge(s) we’re trying to solve. Ultimately we find that many of the solutions we create have a full ROI within 3-6 months.
