The Medical Industry
The medical sector includes those in the medical field, medical device manufacturers, and pharmaceutical companies. This segment is unique because of their direct human intervention and contact, and also due to strict governmental regulations that are a fundamental part of the industry. The medical industry has to comply with FDA regulations and requirements in the US, as well as the regulations and compliance directives of other countries. In addition to these compliance requirements, the medical industry is concerned with liability issues, as well as overall risk reduction, the elimination of human error, and tight process and procedural controls.
The Relyence toolset can be a key part of reliability objectives in the medical field with the following analysis modules:
Relyence Fault Tree
Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) is a well-known, often-used risk assessment tool that can be utilized for all types of risk analysis and management. Relyence Fault Tree provides a comprehensive graphical fault tree diagramming front end with an accurate analytical back end for best-in-class fault tree analyses (FTA). Supporting exact calculations, simulation techniques, importance measures, and minimal cut set evaluation, Relyence Fault Tree is the comprehensive solution for fault tree analyses. Learn more.
Failure Mode and Effects Analysis is used throughout the medical sector, and is often a standard requirement for clients in this market segment. Supporting SAE J1729, ARP 5580, AIAG, as well as custom FMEA implementations, Relyence FMEA supports Design FMEAs and Process FMEAs.
