Often when an entrepreneurial company is struggling to get their first product to market, the focus is on clinical trials, regulatory approval, production startup, and sales. The farthest thing from their mind is the issue of reliability. This is dangerous.
Chet Haibel, principal consultant at Haibel Consulting, LLC, advises reliability should never be forgotten. If a latent reliability issue emerges, it could conceivably invalidate clinical data, forcing a company to repeat clinical trials. Reliability issues cost money, delay schedules, and can damage company reputations.
To protect his clients from encountering reliability issues with new product, Haibel developed a Generic Medical Device Reliability Plan. It describes key activities you should undertake, beginning in the requirements phase and carrying through production, to make sure a new product won’t be hampered by latent reliability problems.
The generic plan is designed to spur discussion of product reliability issues. Haibel says it can be customized for a specific product to form the basis of a robust reliability plan.
We’re pleased to be make the generic plan available to Medical Devices Group members. Let us know if it’s helpful for you.
