Transferring Medical Device Production to a Contract Manufacturer - Decision Making Process and Procedures

This webinar on outsourcing medical device manufacturing will discuss practical decision making steps you can follow to analyze whether to transfer or invest in keeping production in-house. If you decide to transfer production, then this training will detail the options and next steps to transferring it to the right facility or contract manufacturer.

Why Should You Attend:

With the economy, many medical OEMs are deciding whether to invest in upgrading equipment, technology, new personnel, transfer it to a lower cost in-house facility or transfer it to a contract manufacturer. In many cases this could save the OEM from investing in costly bricks and mortar, new technology and higher labor cost. It also frees up floor space for new product initiatives.

This 90-minute webinar will give you the steps to follow in making decisions that could save money, time and people. We will explore the importance of quality, cost and on time delivery/flexibility in making the right decisions. This session will also benefit contract manufacturers, since they have to be ready for a seamless transfer of production by understanding their responsibility and the requirements for a medical device transfer, including the transfer process, validations and the pitfalls that could lead to delays.
