Let’s breakdown how QIF fits into the manufacturing workflow.
The QIF standard provides a platform for automation of software implementation that enables immediate automation of engineering tasks associated with developing a manufacturing process.
Senior Staff Engineer
Coleman Donnelly works with the New Product Innovation team of the Advanced Operations group at Stryker Orthopedics, with primary roles involving data analysis and development of manufacturing and inspection processes. As a Subject Matter Expert at Stryker, he is leading a global team initiative to develop QIF as a foundation for automating the use of software to accelerate new product manufacturing projects.
A look at Stryker: When Dr. Homer Stryker, an orthopaedic surgeon from Kalamazoo, Michigan found that certain medical products were not meeting his patients’ needs, he invented new ones. As interest in these products grew, Dr. Stryker started a company in 1941 to produce them. Today, Stryker is one of the world’s leading medical technology companies. Their growth is based on a diverse array of innovative products and services in Orthopaedics, Medical and Surgical, and Neurotechnology and Spine that help improve patient and hospital outcomes – which they achieve through the dedication of more than 33,000 employees globally.
