Case Study 1: Process Design

Brief: Design a new Manufacturing Process for a Medical Device company.

Background:
After several projects and developing a strong relationship with this client (a multinational Medical Devices company), Designwise Automation was requested to join a team on a consultancy basis to evaluate and propose a robust solution for the complete new manufacturing process.

Evaluation:
This company needed to design a complete process for the manufacture of a device used in heart surgery. Many parts of their existing process were difficult to control & resulted in poor yield. The new process would need to be well understood & clearly defined.

Solution:
Aggressive time frames were required for the delivery of the proposed solution. Using 3D CAD modelling, coupled with our broadband internet connection Designwise Automation enabled active real time collaboration.

The visibility generated by 3D CAD models gave our Client the confidence to place orders for several solutions at an early stage. These solutions were delivered on time and functioned exactly as outlined in the CAD models. Designwise Automation were subsequently requested to supply this solution to other divisions within this multinational company. (USA & Europe)

Benefits: This new process enabled:

  1. A high capability index
  2. High yield
  3. Minimal Human handling
  4. Improvement of product quality

This new process enabled a 50% cost saving on the original process.
