The Sustainable Design and Manufacture for Medical Devices course will cover:

Part 1 - Background

  • Introduction to the seminar and objectives:
  • What are you aiming to achieve from this seminar?
  • Focus: Where does sustainable design and manufacture fit into the overall “sustainability” picture?
  • What are the drivers for sustainability in YOUR industry / organisation? What are the barriers?
  • What has your organisation done so far and why? Did it work? If not, why not?
  • Takeaways

Part 2 - Understanding How to Move Forward

  • Stakeholders in sustainable design and manufacture
  • Risks – organisational, technical, regulatory and market
  • Understanding the synergy between design, manufacture and remanufacture
  • Q & A 

Part 3 - Planning Change

  • Appetite for change – selling the idea, getting stakeholders on board and assessing future market acceptance / demands
  • Understanding the benefits – how sustainability can add value to your organisation and your products
  • Sharing the vision and getting commitment / support
  • Understanding risk – acknowledging that this is new ground and identifying what you don’t know you don’t know
  • Planning phased implementation – disruptive change and how to manage it
  • Feasibility analysis – the answer to the question “should we adopt sustainable manufacture” - might be no!

Part 4 - Implementing Change

  • Where to start – design, manufacture, remanufacture or all three?
  • How to “do” sustainable design. How have others done it? What can we learn? How suitable is it for medical?
  • How to implement a recovery and remanufacturing loop. What can we learn from other industries?
  • What external forces exist and how do we address them?
  • Where to find support and how to keep the regulators happy
  • Starting small and working up – balancing risk with manageable rates of progress and measuring success
  • Scaling up, managing expectations and finding the optimum rate of change
  • Making the financial case – how does sustainability pay for itself?
