Device Systems Engineering

Device Systems Engineering allows engineers to rapidly model device and patient behavior and optimize device design using multidisciplinary trade-off analyses to meet program requirements.

The increasing complexity of medical devices is pushing companies to adopt a systems engineering approach to minimize the risk of device failure and to ensure on time and on budget product releases. By building a systems model of the device, engineers can trace the evolution of the design from the requirements through its functional, logical, and physical representations.

Device Systems Engineering uses a model-based approach that enables the systematic development of a coherent, comprehensive, and reusable description of the medical device, including its detailed logical structure and interfaces. It also allows the rapid exploration of device and patient variability to optimize device performance.  By enabling the development of modular system architectures and a framework for continuous systems analysis and validation, engineering teams can deliver innovations faster, lower the costs of feasibility studies and trade-off analyses, and reduce the risk of device failures and recalls.
