Technology - Virtual Roundtable

Taming the challenge of engineering complex products compounded by compliance

2nd December 2020 | 11:00am - 12:30pm ET
Adhering to standards and regulations without compromising speed and innovation requires a new level of sophistication for medical device design and development

Join a select group of senior thought leaders for this roundtable discussion as we dedicate 90 minutes to answering one of the most valuable questions in business today…

Companies are looking to navigate and accelerate the development of complex products with processes that are both flexible and comprehensive. They are also aiming to have engineering tools that are both modern and open while ensuring access to real-time development data and leveraging AI to glean new insights. However, this can be challenging.

According to IBM, “3 out of 5 executives admit that they struggle to develop products on time and on budget.” Getting started and executing efforts is easier said than done. The ongoing pandemic creates additional challenges for executives including, ensuring global, secure, coordinated, and remote access to all product development data for sustained product engineering. Traditional requirements management, design, development, and V&V processes based on excel, word, paper, or in disconnected siloed tools can be inefficient and risky.

So, how can adopting an end-to-end engineering lifecycle solution help you manage your development, optimize workflows, and ensure your product lifecycles are competitive? What engineering methodologies should you integrate into your development processes? How do you create, manage, and engineer products today?

Join IBM and a select group of industry thought leaders to discuss the approach of establishing a trustworthy, secure, and integrated engineering source of truth to reduce time to market without sacrificing safety or quality.
