- Keynote themes include Analyzing Opportunities in Lean Labeling Programs & Technology

We are speaking and sponsoring at this year’s 5th Semi-Annual Medical Device Labeling & Packaging Conference on 29th – 30th September 2016, PHOENIX, AZ, USA.

The conference represents an excellent opportunity for medical device organizations and labeling executives to discuss the latest developments and opportunities around new technology and solutions for streamlining labeling programs and processes.

On day two of the conference, at 11:15am, Tim Fischer, our Sales Manager, will present an interactive keynote session, offering expert advice on ‘Analyzing opportunities in LEAN labeling programs and technology’.

With the expanding focus on specific labeling requirements on an international level, LEAN labeling programs and technologies are increasingly available to the industry to streamline and expedite operations, reduce waste and reach maximized levels of sustainability in compliant label development.

Tim will discuss and identify:

•    Key-points & benefits in LEAN labeling
•    Comparison of LEAN labeling technologies
•    Average time for LEAN implementation
•    In-house LEAN training & first steps

Furthermore, Tim will take part in the 10:30am Breakout Session on the second day of the conference, which will allow delegates to discuss ‘Postponement Strategy: enhancing documentation processes & supply chain agility’.

This interactive and engaging session format will enable the audience to delve into specific topics of high importance in labeling development, execution and compliance. Participants will have the opportunity to join peers in small group discussions led by topic experts, to directly exchange strategies and address challenges.

Tim comments: “Labeling as part of the medical device supply chain is a costly exercise; many expanding organizations are now either distributing products or opening production sites in multiple countries, which adds new complexities to the supply chain process such as local language labeling and regional regulations and requirements.

The ability to customize labels at the point of print with approved regional requirements and built in inspection as part of a validated system, means the right label goes on the right product, limiting wastage, increasing agility and accelerating speed-to-market.

We are therefore looking forward to discussing some of the challenges and best practices around the latest technologies and methodologies for label optimization.”
