Resolving the Disconnect in the Supply Chain

The pandemic exposed the warts in a medical device manufacturing supply chain. Those companies with well-established relationships fared better than those without them. Ease of communication seemed to be paramount, while supply chain geography was a point of focus for many as well. This panel will discuss the vision for the new supply chain make-up and the implications for those involved, from OEM to service provider.

Securing Today’s Digital Manufacturing Floor

Ransomware attacks have only grown in frequency over the past several years. The impact on the medical device manufacturing sector is no different. Companies must ensure their facilities are as protected as possible from digital threats. While prevention can be expensive, it pales in comparison to a breach, so ensuring the production floor is safe is paramount. This session will provide insights on what leaders at medtech manufacturing firms must keep in mind.

 Considering Sustainability and Recyclability in Business Planning

James B. Schultz

Considering Sustainability and Recyclability in Business Planning

Materials and manufacturing practices are coming under the microscope by a number of stakeholders, from regulatory agencies to medical device firms. As such, changes are happening in terms of the selection of materials and the avoidance of others (such as PFAS). Meanwhile, waste is gaining greater attention and solutions are in demand. This session will look at the impact of changing needs within the medical device sector with a primary focus on materials, waste, recycling, and sustainability.
