 View Only
When:  Mar 28, 2024 from 09:00 AM to 10:00 AM (ET)


Medical device development is facing increasing challenges due to rising complexity, emerging cyber security threats, and evolving regulations. The development of new and innovative medical devices requires companies to navigate a complex and constantly changing landscape, balancing the need for speed, agility, and cost-effectiveness with the need to meet rigorous standards for quality and compliance.

Register now and unlock the digital transformation of your systems engineering, gaining a competitive advantage in the highly demanding medical device industry. Seize the chance to stay ahead in innovation, compliance, and quality assurance!

Join this webinar to learn how to:

  • Enable the speed of innovation - Reduce time to market with strategic reuse-leveraging variants. Model systems and software early in the process, reducing more expensive rework late in process. Share data across distributed teams.
  • Reduce the cost of meeting medical device - Streamline compliance with industry standards and MDR regulations across different geographies. 
  • Assure quality and avoiding recalls effectively - Boost transparency and traceability across the development process. Manage requirement hierarchies and better understand how changes can cascade and impact the entire system under development.
