October 25, 2011

Newest PLM Vivo offering from Kalypso enables medical device companies to implement product lifecycle management in as little as 16 weeks

BEACHWOOD, Ohio – Kalypso, the world’s premier innovation consulting firm, announces the launch of PLM Vivo for Medical Device, a pre-configured product lifecycle management (PLM) solution designed for rapid implementation in medical device companies.

PLM Vivo is built on Oracle’s Agile PLM application and enables medical device companies to go live with their PLM solution in as little as 16 weeks. In addition to reducing setup time, PLM Vivo enables a more structured design control process, provides a validated “production ready” software system and facilitates swift user adoption. The reduced demands on time and resources open the door for medical device companies to gain PLM benefits faster than ever before.

PLM Vivo for Medical Device is configured based on best-in-class implementation practices specific to the industry. This includes Kalypso data templates, workflows, document templates such as DMR and DHF, computer systems validation templates, reports for internal and external audits, and a robust security model that meets 21 CFR Part 11 requirements.

“PLM Vivo for Medical Device is a cost-effective alternative to a traditional PLM implementation, providing a low-risk option for companies to jumpstart their PLM journey,” said Horst Groesser, a partner and Oracle Agile PLM practice lead at Kalypso. “With PLM Vivo, companies are able to leverage leading practice templates to help minimize the cost of validation and regulatory compliance, increase traceability to support internal and external audits, and improve product quality and reliability."
