Camstar Solutions Drive Global Operational Visibility, Lean and Six Sigma Programs for Leader in Cardiovascular Therapies
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 14, 2012-- Camstar Systems, Inc.
announced today that Sorin Group, a global medical device company and a leader in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, has deployed the Camstar Enterprise Platform to support its global growth and continuous improvement initiatives. The Manufacturing Execution System delivers paperless electronic Device History Records (eDHR) with manufacturing process enforcement and intelligence built in.
Significant benefits include real-time visibility and control, automatically enforced process changes, shorter lead times, higher yields, and eDHR review by exception. Operators are able to focus on the process instead of paper, and the efficiencies gained have helped enable the company's Lean and Six Sigma initiatives.
The initial deployment is at a North American site that manufactures Class III tissue-based heart valves, and the solution will be rolled out to additional locations throughout Europe and North America.
"Sorin Group strives for the highest levels of performance and quality across the globe," said Kieran Tuite, Vice President of Corporate Operations for Sorin Group, headquartered in Milan, Italy. "With Camstar's Enterprise Platform, we enable our people to focus on the product by eliminating non-value add activities, and most importantly to sustain profitable growth while continuing to improve the quality of our life-saving medical devices."
