Speaking at BIOMEDevices 2010

Walt Maclay, President of Voler Systems, has been selected to speak on “Outsourcing product development to a multi-discipline team of specialists: A success story” at BIOMEDevice’s Innovation Briefs from 12:45 pm – 1:15 pm on Thursday, November 11, 2010. BIOMEDevices is the premier event for bringing together industry leaders in medical devices. The show offers a compelling mix of new medical technology and biopharmaceutical developments.

Introducing new products in today’s market requires expertise that many businesses are unable to support internally due to time and budget constraints. Hiring qualified external resources presents challenges because many service providers are specialized in a single area of expertise, such as Mechanical Design, and lack the interdisciplinary framework to make truly significant product improvements.

This session presents a case study that involves four separate businesses combining expertise in Mechanical, Electrical Design, Product Reliability, and Operations to deliver an integrated product design review for improvement of a medical rehabilitation device. Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) was used to focus the results. To improve integration, a “General Contractor” model was used, where project management and inputs were managed via a single point of contact. This approach delivered high-level expertise across multiple disciplines, on-demand availability, and laid the foundation for long term support with existing product knowledge.

Speakers: Michael Keer, Founder and CEO, Product Realization Group; Mark Brinkerhoff, President and CEO of FusionDesign; Mike Silverman, Managing Partner, Ops A La Carte; Walt Maclay, President, Voler Systems.
