Topic Background:

A medical device or biotechnology startup plant needs to have product available yet be agile enough to respond quickly to demand and design changes without wasting excess inventory, especially from obsolete products that did not pan out.

A startup plant faces many challenges and options. Too often, the brainpower and focus is on the science and technology of the product. However, without agile systems from the earliest stages, the company may struggle for the wrong reasons as it tries to ramp up its manufacturing and quality systems.
