Medical Manufacturing

Remote vital signs monitoring

A successful transfer to manufacturing is a prerequisite for a successful product. This is particularly true in fast moving and highly regulated markets such as medical.

Plextek are experienced in medical manufacturing from defining strategy through to off-shore manufacturing for customers worldwide. Our clients rely on our experience to reduce risks at transfer to manufacturing. As we are an independent consultancy, we are truly able to select suppliers that are most suited to our client’s requirements.

Plextek prefer to get the manufacturing team involved from the early product concept stages. This allows the best manufacturing strategy to be devised and the product design adjusted to match.

Experience in design and supply of high volume commercial products has taught Plextek the value of the early involvement of supply chain expertise. Early price negotiation during the design phase is essential to achieve best costs along with a good understanding of the implications of duty, tariffs and freight terms.

Similarly, questions regarding environmental legislations, such as RoHS, REACH and WEEE must be addressed during the design phase. On-going support for any obsolescence issues raised at this stage has proved essential to reducing potential risks and problems later into the manufacturing process.

Our manufacturing team’s appreciation of all aspects of a product’s design and functionality means that we also take the lead in tasks such as reliability, risk and FMECA analysis. This is combined with stress and life testing and then pre-approvals testing.

Plextek have the skills to undertake detailed design for manufacturing (DFM) reviews and make necessary changes to the design without degrading product functionality, for example, RF performance. This early analysis and rigorous testing smooths the path to successful volume manufacturing.
