On Demand Virtual Workshop

Powerful Statistical Tools in the Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Industry Workshop

The development of new drugs and medical devices follows well-established approval paths to make sure that they are safe when they reach the public. The U.S. FDA recommends five stages for the medical device and pharma development process, and some Asia Pacific countries' regulators suggest similar steps.

In this virtual hands-on workshop, Minitab Technical Services Manager Ming Dong will walk you through the Minitab Statistical Software and Minitab Workspace quality and visual tools that can be used in each stage. He will also take you through the common challenges faced by pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers.  

This workshop will allow you the opportunity to learn the following:

• How does a medical device packaging company optimize the manufacturing conditions, increase cost savings, and achieve desired sealing strengths?
• How does a quality engineer use Capability Analysis to measure drug dissolution time to show that a high proportion of tablets can meet a targeted specification?
• How does a tranquilizer producer make sure the amount of active ingredient is on target using a hypothesis test?
• How visual tools in Minitab Workspace can help you to manage and execute process improvement projects?
