TCS Engineering Services
For medical devices, diagnostics, and pharmaceutical industry.
Shrinking economies and increased scrutiny by regulators are pressing medical device and pharma majors to define a new path for accelerated profitable growth
Medical devices and pharma industry majors realize that a conventional approach to functioning is not enough to achieve excellence as they are faced with dynamic market demand, reducing operating margins, intense competition, and rapid globalization. Today, manufacturers need to transform their operations by automating, executing, and managing the performance of business processes across the value chain. Product line rationalization and complete digitization of products and processes with reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) are key challenges to sustain market leadership in a dynamic global regulated environment.
Tata Consultancy Services’ (TCS’) Engineering Services for the Medical Devices and Pharma industry span the product lifecycle, right from ideation all the way to product commercialization and supply chain management. As an ISO13485-certified design house, our services in this space enable organizations to develop and implement manufacturing solutions that integrate shop-floor automation to manufacturing execution systems and enterprise systems.
We bring to the table unmatched results in increased innovation, cost containment, and speed-to-market along with certainty of quality and trust. We cultivate supplier enabled innovation for our customers, by leveraging cross functional domain knowledge along with end-to-end engineering business solution for new product development.
The medical devices and diagnostics (MDD) and pharma industry is dealing with dwindling profit margins and increased quality and regulatory compliance requirements
The industry’s method to develop, operate and market is transitioning to a new model that requires a trusted global engineering partner to lead emerging and mature markets. Introducing differentiated innovative products with reduced time to market that gives companies a competitive edge.
