A prominent multinational producer of medical devices was facing challenges related to safety and equipment reliability due to their reactive and underdeveloped programs and systems. The client lacked the industry point of reference to evaluate its compliance with OSHA and cGMP regulations and the effectiveness of its maintenance program.
In pursuit of improved safety, equipment reliability, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), and cGMP regulatory compliance, the medical device manufacturer initiated a plant-wide reliability and best practice benchmarking assessment. Gain insight into the evaluation process, recommendations provided by a qualified team of consultants, and outcomes achieved, including a significant improvement in the plant-wide OSHA recordable rate and cost of goods savings of over $100,000/year.
