New Application Release Further Improves Manufacturing Control, Efficiency and Compliance
Charlotte, NC (August 14, 2007) - Camstar, the established leader in providing Enterprise Manufacturing, and Quality Systems for Life Sciences and other global manufacturers, today announced the release of its new Medical Device Suite™ 4.2. Camstar’s Medical Device Suite is the most widely used manufacturing system in the Medical Device industry, and Camstar’s customers include many of the top medical device manufacturers – a number of whom have already implemented the new release.
Some of the new features of Medical Device Suite 4.2 - which increase manufacturing control, flexibility and efficient compliance - include a more extensive process modeling audit trail, process model data migration capability, and enhancements to its non-conformance management and operator training and certification modules. The modeling audit trail provides full control and traceability of changes to manufacturing resources, products, workflows and process specifications, further streamlining compliance in regulated industries. The modeling data migration feature enables manufacturers to quickly transfer process model data from a test environment to a production environment, shortening the time required to implement validated changes to manufacturing processes. The enhancements to non-conformance management increase control in complex situations where lots are split and merged or components are under investigation. Enhanced configurability of business rules, system documentation and user interfaces also accelerate the implementation process.
“Camstar’s Medical Device Suite has already been adopted by most of the leading Medical Device manufacturers because they can transform paper-based manufacturing and quality processes into an electronic Manufacturing Compliance Platform,” said Scott Toney, President and CEO of Camstar. “For Medical Device Suite 4.2, we have further increased manufacturing control and flexibility with new features that allow companies to facilitate global operational excellence, reduce regulatory risks, lower cost of compliance, and enable continuous process improvement, higher yields, and efficient product rollout.”
Camstar’s Medical Device Suite is a best-in-class, enterprise Manufacturing, Quality and Compliance System created specifically for Medical Device Manufacturers. Supporting Title 21 CFR Parts 11 and 820 compliance, Medical Device Suite provides the manufacturing and quality control needed to reduce manufacturing variability, and improve manufacturing efficiencies; and delivers the real-time intelligence needed to quickly identify root cause and resolve issues that inhibit process and product improvement.
