Overview

The value stream organizational structure breaks down barriers between departments and organizational silos and provides faster decision-making and collaboration. This is evident on the manufacturing floor where you’d find value streams instead of production lines. The result is high quality disposable medical devices at either consistent or varying quantities from an agile and responsive company accustomed to the dynamic nature of medical device manufacturing. A relentless focus on making sure that its operators and assemblers have everything required to meet the production schedule has given Phase 2 the ability to increase output with minimal headcount addition. See how manufacturing is completed in modern, environmentally controlled ISO Class 8 (100,000) cleanrooms.
