Now in the final stages of a research project investigating the challenges and opportunities that Manufacturing Execution Systems(MES) present in the manufacturing of medical devices, the ISBP group of University College Cork students were given a fantastic opportunity. Yesterday, members of the group visited Boston Scientific Cork to see an MES in action. Boston Scientific is one of the world’s leading Medical Device manufacturers with over 23,000 employees around the globe.  Camstar Medical Device Suite is the MES platform of choice for Boston Scientific.The company has been recognized for its impressive commitment to global MES and paperless manufacturing by winning Camstar’s Manufacturing Star Award.

Bausch & Lomb, Johnson & Johnson, Stryker Neurovascular, Baxter Healthcare and Zimmer Biomet are just some of the companies that are helping the students in their research. We look forward to viewing the outcome of the students work.

UCC Students Exploring MES in Manufacturing

By | News | No Comments

Over the past two months Seabrook have been working with University College Cork (UCC) students who are currently studying a MSc ISBP (Information Systems for Business Performance). The group are carrying out a research project exploring ‘the challenges and opportunities of manufacturing execution systems (MES) in the life science manufacturing industry with an aim to recommend the characteristics of an ideal system‘.

The MSc in ISBP is a 12-month intensive course with industrially mentored collaborative projects. Students are taught from beginner level, and prepared to take up business analyst/programmer and management positions in IT departments in small, medium or large organisations, whether public or private, in the financial services, manufacturing or any sector.

We look forward to seeing the finished report and, as always, we are proud to build on our strong relationship with University College Cork.
