Seapine Software Has Launched Its 2014 State of Medical Device Development Survey

CINCINNATIJune 2, 2014] - Seapine Software, a leading provider of process-centric product development solutions, has launched its 3rd annual State of Medical Device Development Survey. The online survey, which is open to all medical device development professionals, will be accessible through the end of August and will establish industry benchmarks and identify industry challenges.

"This survey is an important piece of research that enables those in the medical device industry to watch developing trends and assess their own processes in an effort to stay in front of those trends," said Rick Riccetti, president and CEO of Seapine Software. "Last year, for example, survey results indicated that medical device manufacturers were trending away from a document-centric approach to product development and toward an artifact-centric approach, which relies on commercial software to create, track, and trace individual artifacts and work items. This is an important evolution for the industry and, because survey findings are shared with all respondents, enabled them to compare their experiences and offerings with their peers and make internal adjustments as necessary."

Seapine is seeking the insights of professionals involved in the design, development, and testing of medical devices. Respondents will be asked about topics such as risk analysis and mitigation as well as design control, quality control, and compliance processes.

Medical device development professionals can take the survey at through August 31.

As an additional incentive for participation, all respondents will be registered for a chance to win a FitBit One, Amazon Fire TV, or Withing Wireless Scale.
