Time to Market = Time to Money
When it comes to a lengthy product development life cycle, few areas of product development are more involved than creating a medical device. Regulatory requirements are tight, approval processes are long, and cash flow can be short. Increasing the speed of medical device product development is possible with the right team in place.
Experienced engineering teams have rigorous, time tested methods of developing a product while avoiding the pitfalls. At Leardon Solutions, decades of experience have given us a unique perspective on the build, test, and fix mindset.
Our global engineering team takes a collaborative approach at problem solving. This approach includes a product development strategy that includes 7 stages and 5 gates to ensure speed and accuracy of development.
Effective aspects of a world-class Leardon Solutions product life cycle also include:
A sound and strategic product architecture: Product architecture is the strategic practice of aligning major systems and minor subsystems within a framework to which those major and minor systems can interact.
System Integration: Proper system integration is the process of combining component subsystems into one functioning system.
Industrial Design: Leardon Solutions uses a combination of hardware engineers and design experts to achieve innovative industrial design. By doing so, a product not only looks greats but also functions above and beyond expectations.
Mechanical Engineering: Addressing the design, construction, and use of machines and mechanisms.
Electrical Engineering: Manipulating electricity, electronics and electromagnetism to achieve defined goals.
Firmware Engineering: Embedded systems for devices like appliances, mobile phones, and medical / diagnostic equipment.
Software Engineering: Implementing engineering principles into software development for mobile, medical, and consumer devices.
Specification Development: Leardon’s proprietary specification development is a tried and true method for establishing a development timeline that is both accurate and cost effective. The Leardon specification development method prioritizes first and second order objectives with the underlying intention to assist with all other facets of development on any given project. Our specification development undergoes a thorough audit by all engineering, design, and manufacturing teams. Our customers know what they are getting, when they getting it, and how much they are paying to get it.
Design Margin and Product Qualification: Thanks in large part to our consumer products experience, the Leardon Solutions team takes design margin very serious. Our objective is to design, build, and manufacture a product that will last the test of time and endure expected abuses. The Leardon Design margin strategy can include drop tests, heat, humidity, shake/vibration and various other types of tests designed to gain valuable data on the performance of the product.
While the product development life cycle strategy is the same, the approach to each unique project varies to accommodate industry trends, regulatory requirements, and other constraints. Hence the reason why Leardon Solutions focuses on Medical Device, Active Sports, and Consumer Products.
Our medical device and diagnostic experience spans products such as temporary bone fillers, nasogastric feeding tubes, stem cell extraction devices, orthodontic solutions, diagnostic systems, dry heat therapy, and infectious disease test kits.
Our experience in consumer products includes ink-jet printers, acupressure devices, mobility assistance, home and garden, wireless bluetooth devices and game controllers.
