Who Benefits from MasterControl Medical Device Software System?

  • Product Development and Engineering: MasterControl readily manages the continual flood of product spec iterations and keeps manufacturing, purchasing, document control, and the supply chain up to date. MasterControl also allows design engineers to work in the CAD environments where they are most comfortable while at the same time helping them to remain in compliance without hampering the development cycle.
  • Manufacturing/Operations: With MasterControl, manufacturing and operations personnel are connected to the development process earlier and they are able to provide input that will reduce manufacturing costs and get the supply chain lined up sooner. MasterControl insures that documentation used in the manufacturing process is always up to date and robust training management tools affirm that operator training records are current.
  • Quality: MasterControl helps quality professionals avoid common QMS pains such as CAPA, complaints, and audits and provides more insight into the development process and resulting documentation. Quality professionals can use MasterControl to track and trend quality metrics using the system's built-in analytics tools and scheduled reports. In addition, MasterControl can be utilized to leverage the quality feedback loop in order to improve product design and reduce failures in the field.
  • Purchasing: MasterControl provides purchasing departments with a single source for product specifications and approved vendor information. Managers can see changes in processes and use the system to enhance efficiency and prevent rework and scrapped product. MasterControl provides the assurance that purchasing decisions will always be based on accurate and up-to-date data.
  • Regulatory: MasterControl provides regulatory professionals with the means to easily collaborate with the cross-functional development team to assemble documentation for submissions to regulatory bodies such as the FDA. Furthermore, correspondence with regulatory agencies may be stored and tracked in MasterControl, thus providing a single access point for all regulatory information.
