Medical Device Makers Develop Products Better and Faster With Disciplined Project-Management Process, Intertech President Writes

NORWOOD, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 25, 2005 -- With disciplined project-management processes, medical device manufacturers can achieve high-quality, cost-efficient, and accelerated development projects, David A. Vogel, president of Intertech Engineering Associates Inc., writes in the April issue of "Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry," a leading industry magazine.

"The complexities of developing a high-tech medical device are so daunting to the inexperienced that it may seem that luck has more to do with success than anything else. Why do companies with similar products sometimes take very different amounts of time to launch new products, and why do they have very different success rates? The performance differences are so consistent that it suggests that maybe luck has little to do with it. Successful managers and companies adopt disciplined engineering and project-management processes and constantly strive to improve their processes and techniques," he writes.
