Objectives and Key Deliverables
We are a medical device manufacturer looking to reduce the time and cost it takes to launch new packaging for its products.
A lot of this is necessary as we are a global company within a complex regulatory framework but there will be ways to improve this. For example, we currently have 33 languages within our inserts but this could be reduced to 18-25 for example if we see the ability to reduce the number of languages needed within some countries.
Our targets are:
- Reducing the time taken for development from 12 weeks down to 5
- Reducing the time taken for amendments to be approved from 3 weeks down to 1 day
An initial stage should be value-stream mapping to help us improve the current process. Once that is completed we might look remake the process with additional digital elements.
Our ideal candidate will need to have done this before within a medical device or pharma company as we will be faced with a well established organisation who will be reluctant to change. Being able to point to having done this before within the unique regulatory framework.
