Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Oct 30, 2018 - The potential for proactive use of simulation and computer-aided engineering (CAE) in medical devices is huge: saving lives and saving millions of dollars for the industry. This is accomplished by optimizing designs for performance and reliability, reducing the number of required benchtop tests and clinical trials, as well as accelerating the regulatory approval process. Successfully employing simulation forms the fundamental basis for a sound product engineering practice and drives design excellence.
The successful use of simulation in product engineering begins at the concept stage, even before computer-aided drafting (CAD) exists. Using a process that tracks requirements, manages simulation/test requests and makes use of simulation to investigate innovative concepts before a physical prototype is built is key to effective innovation. As part of this process, system simulation techniques can be used to explore various concepts, optimize the architecture of a device and verify that performance goals are achieved. Hundreds of concepts can be explored in this way, far exceeding what could be accomplished by building prototypes and testing, resulting in more innovative and better performing designs.
Additionally, since the concept has been thoroughly vetted on the computer, there is a high likelihood that requirements will be met without having to repeatedly iterate/backtrack through the detailed design effort. This results in faster product development, lower cost, fewer prototypes, faster time to release and much lower risk product performance issues.
This is the fourth webinar in a series of five stand-alone webinars that are covering the topic of design excellence/digital evidence for medical device companies.
In this live webinar upcoming on Friday, Nov. 16, 2018, at 11 a.m. EST (4 p.m. GMT/UK), our featured speaker Scott Hadley P.E., Presales Specialist, Computer Aided Engineering Center of Excellence at Siemens PLM, will explore the application of advanced simulation technologies to simulate drop testing, dynamic response and acoustic behaviour of a medical infusion pump. This event will also feature a review of concepts of design excellence and walk through a practical example to show how these concepts can be used to develop a more robust and innovative product development process.
