Abstract

The goal of the project is to develop a medical device supply chain, from raw materials to manufacturing, working with Center for Advanced Manufacturing Puget Sound (CAMPS). We will be breaking down the bill of materials for two medical devices, a prosthetic ankle and an ultrasound machine, into components, sub-components, and raw materials. We will then find suppliers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) located within the Puget Sound, Washington State, neighboring states, and globally. The OEMs and suppliers will be evaluated and rated on several criteria, including: risk, quality, reputation, and location. Cost for raw materials and components will also be evaluated. Using the ratings and evaluations, we will analyze and develop two supply chains, one for each medical device, with several alternatives. The information is collected through interviewing suppliers and OEMs, scheduling visits, and working with CAMPS.

This presentation received a University Centers Best Poster Presentation Award, 2014.
