April 2013 Research Alert
This month we added two new studies to the Best Practice Database. All of the new studies focus on the quality function in the medical device sector. These studies probe the role of quality across different activities in the medical device manufacturing process - including at company locations in low-cost markets and using vendors in low-cost markets.
The new Best Practices, LLC studies listed below under Newly Added Research explore how leading companies have made their operations more effective across these different areas.
