Improve Requirements Management at Your Med Device Company

Track: Teamcenter User Connection

Session Number: 170027
Date: Wed, May 10th, 2017
Time: 3:30 PM - 4:15 PM
Room: 206

Description:

When companies make simple mechanical products, they may not understand what a requirements management tool does, and if so, they probably have no idea what do with an RM tool inside a PLM tool. How do you get your company that makes simple devices to use a requirements management tool to improve their process for managing requirements?  How do you get your company that makes simple devices to use a requirements tool in a PLM System? Answer: You meet them where they are comfortable.  Their comfy places are Excel spread sheets and Word documents. These folks are not likely to be immediately comfortable living in requirements trees or building in webs of FMEA data.  They like their spreadsheets. They like tables.  TcUA’s MS Office Integration is the ‘gateway drug’ to introducing engineers who don’t really understand the system engineering discipline of ‘requirements management’ to structuring engineering data. This tool helps them build these trees and webs behind the scene by using Excel or Word without them having to understand how to build trees or webs.

 Body:

  • Requirements activities common in every medical device company
  • Questions every medical device product engineer has to answer
  • Why don’t some medical device companies use an RM tool?  Answer is the difference in the level of understanding of engineers who work on simple devices vs more complex mechatronic
  • RM Maturity Model
  • The role of MS office in maturing an organization through the RM Model
  • Case study/Outcomes:  MS office integration in TCUA/RM
