Medical technology is a dynamic and highly innovative industry within Germany. While still relatively small, it is a rapidly growing sector. Germany is second only to the USA in terms of patents filed in this area. In addition to a handful of major international concerns, some 1,200 SMEs form the industry's creative backbone. 95 percent of these companies employ fewer than 250 employees. Every business is unique. In order for business software to be able to utilise its strengths and add value to the medical technology industry, we need to understand the business processes.
In the field of medical technology, quality management is of the utmost importance; finished products cannot leave the production lines with any defects. To ensure this, the entire production process must be continuously monitored (from goods receipt to production and goods issue). It must be possible to document results and make them available for every device across all product structures. This is the only way to ensure that all relevant articles can be identified in the event of a recall campaign and ensure customer requirements are met in the event of a supplier audit. In the event of a complaint, quality management and the complaint department work together. Creating test orders and 8D reports directly from a complaint simplifies case handling.
Furthermore, this industrial sector frequently involves multi-level orders that are produced simultaneously at different sites and in part by external manufacturers in the manner of an extended workbench. It is important that outsourced work steps are taken into account during production planning. COSMO CONSULT's industry solutions for medical technology provide all necessary functions for mapping material provision, monitoring external production, managing stock and checking incoming invoices. It is therefore easy to map external production with provision of materials.
Businesses also have to respond flexibly to their customers in the production of manufacturing variants, offering customised products at a reasonable cost. The parallel development of similar products can bring about high additional costs. This can be prevented by mapping design plans appropriately and efficiently and employing a variant configurator in the ERP software.
The advantages of seamless Microsoft Office integration are evident: information can be processed across different programs without causing any media breaks. For example, you can simply make bulk data changes in Microsoft Excel by exporting tables to Excel, editing them there and then importing them back to the ERP system. This import undergoes ERP-system plausibility checks, so that Microsoft Dynamics only receives valid data.
This results in numerous interactions between the Microsoft worlds.
Digitalisation is not everything. It is much more important that the various IT systems interlock, preferably seamlessly. COSMO CONSULT and Microsoft are the right partners for supplying best-of-breed solutions from a single source. We have intermeshed Microsoft technologies: SharePoint technology with the ERP suite from Microsoft and the new Office world. This makes us unique and gives you the best opportunities.
