Meddux Development Corporation Expands

Meddux Development Corporation, an engineering design and development firm for interventional and minimally invasive surgical devices, will be expanding to a new facility in Boulder, Colorado, as of January 2, 2019. “The new facility will increase our square footage to 12,000 sq. ft.,” said David Schechter, president of Meddux. “This will allow us to expand our product development engineering areas and our manufacturing capacity, doubling the size of our Controlled Environment (CE) and adding a significant amount of warehouse space.”

Critical Parameter Management

Critical Parameter Management

How do you determine what is critical to your product? How do you maintain quality and minimize variability throughout your manufacturing processes and supply-chain? Critical Parameter Management (CPM) is an engineering practice specifically aimed at understanding and maintaining the robustness of a system through detailed design and the implementation of appropriate manufacturing controls. Critical parameters are derived from the key elements – or the fundamental physics – of what makes your product function. During the detailed design phase, it is too easy to label an excessive number of functional elements as “critical”.

Innovation by Analysis and Synthesis

Innovation by Analysis and Synthesis

Innovation doesn’t happen out of thin air. Innovation happens from analogies. It is leveraged from similar solutions you have seen applied in other industries and applications. In effect, all innovation is incremental building one off another; each technological break-through enabling the next. The most critical starting point for innovating is to fully understand the problem your trying to solve; to experience it in is actual environment; to research it and to fully immerse yourself.
