Medical device companies are continually challenged to find ways to counter market pressures and maintain product relevance. Value engineering is a systematic and function focused decision process for responding to these hurdles. Ultimately, value is improved by finding ways of cutting costs or refining the product’s functions while keeping the core product intact. Join us to learn how this standardized approach can uncover product improvements and yield results for new value.

What participants will learn:

  • Why it’s important for OEMs to utilize value engineering
  • Risks of not using value engineering
  • Value Method process
  • Design and manufacturing optimization advantages
