CIM Data publish commentary on PLM in the medical device industry

Posted on October 14, 2016

The independent PLM research and consulting authority CIM Data have published a very interesting commentary on PLM in the medical device industry and linked that to Minerva’s Medical Device PLM solution.


Key takeaways from the commentary are:


  • Complete and accurate design history files (DHF) and device master records (DMR) are critical to successfully launching and supporting medical device productsCIM Data commentary
  • Paper or file folder-based processes often used to manage documentation slow time to market, make data hard to manage, and make effective risk management, verification, validation, and full traceability difficult to support
  • Minerva’s Medical Device solution, based on Aras Innovator, helps companies develop and support products by structuring data and processes using industry best practices to speed time to market while managing risk

So do you work in a medical device company that is or have been experienced challenges with regards to a change management process that can create baselines that encompass everything from deliverables in your project, to the status of your DHF and DMR, your BOM structure, documentation and everything else that is a part of your Product Record, then read the commentary.
