Camstar Medical Device Suite: The Class of the Industry for Medical Device Manufacturers

By | Blog | No Comments

Companies are moving faster than ever before.  Although product quality, regulation compliance, and risk mitigation are at the forefront of manufacturing, speed and innovation are becoming ever more important as companies seek to maintain pace with competition and customer demand.  These demands, when balanced with the need to contain cost, can be daunting for today’s medical device manufacturer. 

Introduction of a Manufacturing Execution System (MES) can ease these pain points, and CamstarTM Medical Device Suite is industry top-of-the-class.  Specifically, CamstarTM Medical Device Suite enables medical device and diagnostics manufactures the ability to meet the challenges of product quality and compliance – without sacrificing profit. 

CamstarTM Medical Device Suite creates a paperless manufacturing environment, enforces industry best practices and compliance, eliminates non-value-added activities, and creates a self-auditing electronic Device History Record (eDHR) and electronic batch record (eBR) – leading to a more efficient and effective production.  Specifically, Medical Device Suite can help manufacturers by offering the following benefits:

Reduced Cost and Risk of Compliance.  Medical Device Suite creates and electronic device history record (eDHR) and electronic batch record (eBR), thereby eliminating the cost of labor for manual creation, review, research etc. of a paper-based DHR.  In addition to the lowered cost, there is also a significant reduction in product quality issues and customer complaints. 

Increased Productivity and Profit Margin.  The CamstarTM Medical Device Suite eDHR and eBR enables operators to focus time on product production and quality rather than collecting data, reviewing documents, and completing paperwork.  In addition to a more-efficient manufacturing floor, costs are also reduced by elimination of paper, scrap reduction, and increased manufacturing velocity.

Enhanced Decision Making.  Because CamstarTM Medical Device Suite includes actionable intelligence from dashboards, preconfigured reports, and the collection and correlation of data, companies utilizing this MES gain significant knowledge regarding the entire manufacturing process – allowing for enhanced, accurate decision making.

Increased Throughput and Yield.  Real-time visibility of the entire manufacturing process and work in process (WIP) is a significant advantage of CamstarTM MES.  This visibility allows for better process enforcement and right-first-time production – leading to a reduction in scrap and rework.

Product and Process Traceability.  With CamstarTM Medical Device Suite, a product, lot or unit can be traced across the supply chain, factory, multiple factories, or entire enterprise.  Traceability data includes forwards and backwards genealogy of materials consumed, processes and equipment utilized, exceptions, rework, signatures, and more. 

Exploring paperless manufacturing is an opportunity for small-to-medium manufacturers to increase their competitive advantages. Stepping into the paperless revolution creates a more secure and more accurate process, while leading the way to greater revenues.  CamstarTM Medical Device Suite is by far the most widely used and well-known MES in the industry.  It allows an organization to improve its competitive position, ensure compliance, and reduce product risks – all while significantly lowering costs.  It has been our experience that companies that utilize the CamstarTM Medical Device Suite can quickly realize significant reduction in paper cost, cycle times, manufacturing-related complaints, scrap, and product review and release time. In addition to the many benefits, the ease of implementation is often easier than expected, regardless of the size of implementation.

As a leader in the industry, CamstarTM is very small-business friendly and serves a large customer base with great success! Details and much more information will be presented in a webinar hosted by Seabrook Technology Group and Siemens on Thursday, June 20 from 11:15 a.m.-12:00 p.m. EST.  Register for this FREE WEBINAR by visiting https://www.eventbrite.com/e/paperless-manufacturing-webinar-tickets-61428515343

Paperless Manufacturing: Your End-To-End Solution

By | Blog | No Comments

As small-to-medium medical device and biotech manufacturers are aware, the outdated paper-based manufacturing process is time-consuming, inefficient, and costly.  Stepping into the paperless revolution creates a more secure and more accurate process – while leading to greater revenues. There are several advantages to MES implementation, including
1. the elimination of the need for paper and paper storage (saving literally thousands of dollars)
2. full traceability of the manufacturing process in an electronic format
3. inherently less review time, as the MES tracks and reviews processes
4. quick analysis and characterization of the manufacturing process

Implementation of a paperless Manufacturing Execution System is at the heart of an efficient end-to-end manufacturing process.  Think of the MES as a system of authority for how a product is manufactured – as it works in alliance with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM).  Implementation of MES is an outstanding opportunity for small to medium sized manufacturers to increase effectiveness and efficiency.
