Updating Supplier Quality Management Processes to Accommodate Innovative Medical Devices, While Collaborating with Software Vendors and Creating Harmonized Systems to Interface with Suppliers on a Global Scale
The use of software is growing immensely in the medical device field as manufacturers not only develop interactive products that require advanced technology, but also build innovative systems to communicate with suppliers involving software interfaces. While the use of new technology is allowing great leaps in the field, manufacturers must create new approaches to validation, supplier auditing, and re-evaluate the risk of certain suppliers to maintain product quality. Industry though leaders will address a range of topics from sharing best practices on scorecards for different types of supplier and global vendors, requirements for change notifications to ensure OEMs have awareness of critical changes in a timely matter, and building quality agreements for both external and internal suppliers. With a blend of interactive sessions including case studies, panels, and workshops to showcase regulatory and industry perspectives, participants will receive one-on-one peer interaction on top industry concerns.
