Minerva Solutions

Best Practice in the Medical Device Industry

Based on more than two decades of experience in implementing PLM for the Medical Device Industry, we have developed an industry solution that handles the issues that are not solved satisfactory by the standardized PLM platforms available on the market today.

There is a constant pressure on medical device companies to keep up with the latest regulatory legislations and at the same time to maintain optimized workflow. The fear of mismatching with regulations has forced some of them to adopt an inefficient work structure, which results in higher costs and less budget for Innovation and New Product Development.

Case Study: Auditdata

Faced with the challenge to find documents and to make relationships between them, Auditdata needed relation database, that would systemize documents and give a good overview of the relationships between different files.

Case Study: Malvern Instruments

1 million files, that was roughly the amount of data scattered in literally every virtual corner of Malvern Instruments' organization - from hard drives to e-mails and floppy disks. The vast quantities of unstructured information were the main factor behind their decision to find a system enabling a more structured way of centralizing the data.

Case Study: Airbus

The flexibility and scalability of Aras, which allows the user to add customized functionalities without extra charges nor any need for heavy programming, was one of the main reasons why Airbus chose to implement the system.
