Manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler has been writing about the manufacturing the state of manufacturing for over 20 years and holds unique insights into the future holds for manufacturing.
Cutler predicts regulatory scrutiny will drive the deployment of technology to improve quality in the factory in 2019. As adoption of Class II and III medical devices increases to improve the quality of life for patients, so too have FDA regulations to ensure the safest possible manufacturing methods. New machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and cloud technology are helping quality teams create “forced quality networks” to prevent some of the most common causes of manufacturing errors and ensure compliance. If an issue is uncovered later, these new technologies will also be used to quickly isolate products that must be recalled.
