Rapid Product Development: Four Areas to Audit When Selecting a Contract Manufacturer

The battle against COVID-19 has created a niche need for companies able to support product development cycles that cut months off traditional product development timelines. Achieving that speed should not translate to abandoning the quality control checks and balances necessary to meet regulatory requirements and achieve superior quality. Like the driver and pit crew relationship in Gran Prix racing, cutting that much time out of a product development cycle requires close collaboration between medical device manufacturer and the contract manufacturer. Everyone needs to understand their roles, project requirements and key milestones. Not surprisingly, selecting a contract manufacturer with well-defined processes, broad capabilities, and significant design and manufacturing expertise can provide substantial advantages in this area.

Forefront Medical Technology, a specialty contract manufacturer with a focus in disposable diagnostic, drug delivery systems and medical device systems, feels there are four areas that can help in achieving speed and quality in time-sensitive product development efforts. They are:

·         A robust process for ensuring close collaboration during product development

·         Internal tooling design and fabrication capabilities

·         Vertically-integrated manufacturing capabilities

·         Regulatory expertise.

This whitepaper looks at each of these areas and suggests questions for auditing contract manufacturer capabilities in assessing competency.
