The Key to Leveraging Multiple Engineering Disciplines in Medical Device Design

Of the multitude of disciplines required for designing and developing medical devices, what's the best mix for total product life cycle management? How does each stage and department work together to achieve a quality finished product? 


Why multidiscipline teams? Systems engineers identify design concepts, and evaluate for compliance requirements. The quality assurance team has software platforms which are customized for each project and provides step-by-step, visual instructions. The detailed, picture-based instructions reduce assembly and test time, helping customers be quicker and more responsive to market demands. Mechanical engineers conceptualize and optimize designs for form and fit, and are well-versed in a variety of CAD systems and analysis tools. They design with assembly, testability, and serviceability in mind.

Electrical engineers provide the intelligence for controlling functions through microprocessor circuits such as liquid-level sensing, temperature regulation, reagent dispensing, and motor movements. Electronic circuits and connecting cables are the central nervous system of most medical device systems. Having experience in analog and digitial circuit designs assists in designing complex medical devices for market.

KMC Systems has been perfecting this collaborative mix of experts for over 30 years. Leading and emerging medical device companies trust KMC Systems to successfully bring in-vitro diagnostic, surgical, therapeutic, life science and laboratory automation instrumentation to market.
