We are constantly improving our processes to keep up with stringent manufacturing demands and technological advancements. Harnessing the power of LEAN and KANBAN methodologies, we empower businesses to streamline operations, reduce waste, and achieve operational excellence.



  1. LEAN Principles: We are committed to the fundamental principles of LEAN, focusing on the elimination of waste, continuous improvement, and respect for people. Our experts work closely with your team to identify inefficiencies and implement sustainable solutions that optimise your processes.
  2. KANBAN Methodology: Leveraging the visual and adaptive KANBAN approach, we help organisations visualise workflow, manage work in progress, and achieve a smooth, just-in-time production flow. This results in improved communication, reduced lead times, and increased overall productivity. 



The adaptive nature of our processes allows our organisation to quickly respond to changes in demand, market conditions, and internal dynamics, fostering agility and resilience. As a result, we managed to — Double our labour productivity | Cut production throughput time | Reduce inventories by 90 percent | Cutting errors , hence building better partnership with our partners.

Adherence to quality control principles is essential to ensure the safety, efficacy, and reliability of medical devices throughout their lifecycle. Additionally, compliance with relevant regulatory standards, such as ISO 13485 and FDA regulations, is critical for market approval and maintaining the trust of stakeholders.


  1. Quality Management System (QMS):
    • Implement and maintain a robust Quality Management System that complies with relevant standards and regulations (e.g., ISO 13485). A QMS provides a framework for documenting, monitoring, and improving processes.
  2. Document Control:
    • Establish procedures for document control to ensure that all documents related to manufacturing processes, specifications, and quality standards are controlled, updated, and easily accessible.
  3. Design Controls:
    • Integrate design controls to manage the development and design changes of medical devices. This includes validation and verification processes to ensure the safety and efficacy of the device.
  4. Non-Conforming Product Management:
    • Establish procedures for identifying, segregating, and addressing non-conforming products. Implement corrective and preventive actions to mitigate the risk of recurrence.
  5. Traceability and Lot Control:
    • Ensure traceability of materials and components throughout the manufacturing process. Implement lot control to facilitate the identification and tracking of batches or lots.
  6. Calibration and Maintenance:
    • Regularly calibrate and maintain equipment used in the manufacturing process to ensure accuracy and reliability. Establish a calibration schedule and maintain records.




Implement process validation protocols to ensure that manufacturing processes consistently produce products that meet pre-defined specifications. This includes IQ (Installation Qualification), OQ (Operational Qualification), and PQ (Performance Qualification) processes. Here are a few key reasons why process validation is important: 


1. Ensures Consistency and Reproducibility:

  • Process validation confirms that a manufacturing process consistently produces products meeting predetermined specifications. This consistency is crucial for the reliability and effectiveness of the final product. 


2. Reduces Risk of Defects and Non-Conformities:

  • Through thorough validation, manufacturers can identify and mitigate potential sources of defects or non-conformities in the manufacturing process. This risk mitigation is essential for preventing product recalls and ensuring customer safety.


3. Facilitates Continuous Improvement:

  • The data collected during the validation process provides valuable insights into the manufacturing process. This information can be used to identify areas for improvement and drive continuous process improvement initiatives.


It is a fundamental aspect of quality management systems and regulatory compliance, contributing to the overall safety, efficacy, and reliability of products in the medical device industry. 



As part of our ongoing commitment with our customers, we are able to provide regulatory advice to aid our customers in selling their products to their desired market. This is a tedious process as each country has different regulations (E.g., FDA, CE Marking, HSA, AFTA).


Key Challenges: Regulatory Divergence, Language and Cultural Barriers, Resource and Capacity Gap in some regulatory bodies, Market Protectionism


Take for example the Asia market, every product needs to be duly approved by each individual regulatory authority in every Asia country. Therefore, ASEAN countries came up with the “ASEAN Guidelines for Harmonisation of Standards”. This is adopted by all ASEAN member states, to complement ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA). In particular, to eliminate technical barriers, but without compromising product quality, efficacy, and safety. 

The Singapore Medtech Consortium also plays a pivotal role in working to build the strong research base that helps the Singapore’s Medtech industry to leverage its own supply management. To adopt systems approach, we need to constantly discover with updated technology and entities that are both up and down the value chain. By understanding products better, we can help all the aspects in Validation Protocol.
