Last week, Pilgrim was privileged to address the 2017 American Medical Device Summit on a topic that all Quality professionals need to be thinking about. However, in many cases, Industry 4.0 sounds like a buzzword or it’s assumed to be a distant future opportunity. In reality, facets of Industry 4.0 are already here.
Industry 4.0, also known as Smart Factory 4.0, is labeled as the fourth industrial revolution, yet many don’t understand it or how it will impact the things they do; Quality Management is no exception. The Executives in your organization, however, are most certainly monitoring this paradigm-shifting strategy. Quality professionals should be as well. Quality professionals must ensure they are part of their company’s Industry 4.0 dialog.

More than ever before, Life Science quality professionals are feeling the pressure of increasing regulations and the rapid pace of business and industry-driven change. In previous posts, we’ve discussed these challenges, as well as the imperatives for the next generation of quality solutions that will help meet them. Next-generation enterprise quality management systems (QMS) must drive real product quality, link closely with business objectives, enable global harmonization, support enterprise quality, and enable an organization's culture of quality. That’s a tall order for most quality systems that are deployed within Life Sciences organizations today.

The industry continues to be buzzing about ISO 13485:2016, and with good reason. The March 1, 2019 deadline is inching ever closer and some organizations are in full preparedness mode. Some have already even conducted mock audits. Others have been granted new product approvals with the new ISO criteria already coming into focus for them. Others are simply putting team plans in place for their implementation and/or upgrade to ISO 13485:2016-ready Quality Management Software (QMS) solutions.
