Pre-clinical testing is utilized to evaluate the safety and potential efficacy of promising medical technologies prior to evaluation and use in human beings. This testing information is required by regulatory agencies around the world. The studies also provide extremely valuable and cost effective product development opportunities for medical product sponsors. The tests are defined by guidance documents, international standards and the formal product risk assessment. Coordination of the multifunctional team that acquires and also utilizes this data can greatly enhance the value of this testing. This course will review the history and preclinical regulatory requirements of medical devices and description planning and management of associated pre-clinical evaluations. In addition, the risks involved in medical device development and use are explored. Risk mitigation activities associated with development of an actual medical device are presented and then experienced through their application for a hypothetical medical device. Class time is devoted to providing feedback for individual student projects about mitigating the development risks for a student chosen real or hypothetical medical device.

Strategic quality management is presented as a Driver--> System--> Results model. The DSR model provides a framework for better understanding your business and when and where to take action to improve results. The model is a tool that links company mission, strategic plans, competitive positioning, and customer focus as the DRIVER. People and processes form the SYSTEM that actually designs, produces, and delivers products and services. RESULTS include financial, customer, employee and process. The course also connects the DSR model to the Malcolm Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence, six sigma and lean improvement tools ISO 9000, and Quality Management Systems and tools such as Statistical Process Control (detailed training in tools such as SPC is not part of the class). In addition to developing an understanding of how to guide and manage quality strategically, the course also helps to identify and prioritize the "right questions to ask" to guide and manage tactically. Applying the course to real world situations should lead to improved results - financial, customer, employee and process.

This course provides the student with a set of skills to improve products and processes already in manufacturing as well as to develop products and processes in the development stages of a project. The definition of DOE promoted is " a tool to assist in the process of understanding the system". There will be discussion of how DOE fits into the overall product lifecycle and where it applies and does not apply to the area of testing. Tools covered include full and fractional factorials, central composite, Box-Behnken, Taguchi, Evolutionary Operation and the method of steepest ascent. Theoretical statistics understanding is assumed coming into the course. A standard, simple process will be presented which allows for improved communication and user confidence in using the tool set. The primary objective is to assist the student in implementing the skills learned as a part of the course. This is an applications - oriented course that includes case studies, team projects, student presentations and reports, guest lecturers and use of computational software. A quick statistical overview will be provided in the class as a refresher, but is not intended to cover the subjects in depth to students new to the subject. It would still be beneficial to review all of the topics prior to starting the class. The underlying statistics covered in ETLS 506 are a critical foundation for the material presented in the DOE class. The minimum background needs to include an understanding of: statistical symbology; normal distribution; ANOVA; and z, t, and F tests. General understanding of alpha and beta errors flow charts, Pareto charts, cause and effect diagrams and SPC is nice but not required. If you have equivalent background, the instructor will grant a written waiver.

This class will focus on the different quality system requirements, from a regulatory viewpoint, for medical device manufacturers. The majority of the class time will be spent reviewing, froma a regulatory viewpoint, the FDA Quality Requirements and the European ISO 9000 Series requirements. There will also be some discussion regarding submissions required for approval of new products, and changes to products and/or manufacturing processes, especially in the context of changes to the quality systems that have been implemented. There will also be several classes on how to handle FDA inspections, and the ramification of non-compliance's discovered during inspections. Classroom methodology will be lectures with substantial student interaction encouraged. Students will be encouraged to share their experiences from their own companies regarding the subjects be discussed. Some portions of several of the classes will be presented by selected students, sharing what they have learned from small group interaction during class time.

An introduction to the key elements of control systems employed in manufacturing with examples from both batch and continuous-process applications. First, the fundamental theory of operation of closed loop (binary and analog) control systems is developed. Students will explore using PLCs to implement modern systems and become familiar with a PLC programming language. Second, the theory of operation and performance limits of sensors and actuators used in the industrial environment is explored. Some sensors to be considered measure position, speed, temperature, flowrate, level and force. Some actuators to be considered include pumps, hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders, heaters, valves, stepping motors, and AC and DC motors. Future trends in control systems targeted for the manufacturing plant will be presented. Students will demonstrate their ability to automate a manufacturing cell and quantify the cost impact of the project on the manufacturing example chosen in a term paper. Instructor's permission required for MS, MBA and Certificate students.

This course introduces the student to theory and application of engineering materials. While particular emphasis is placed on traditional structural materiasl, emerging materials technology is also discussed. Topics explore the physical and mechanical properties of metals, polymers, ceramics, and composite materials. Useful applications and limitations of those materials presented, and means of modifying their properties are discussed at length. Guest speakers and industrial tours supplement traditional learning by exposing the student to particular materials application, processing and evaluation.

This course offers an introduction to finite element analysis (FEA) in theory and practice. Students will learn the mathematical and physical foundation of the method, and will also be exposed to implementation via a commerical FEA program. Solution to real problems and projects will be integral parts of the course content and grade. Emphasis will be placed on the use of FEA for solid/structural mechanics problems, while the solution for thermal and fluid problems will be covered superficially. A strong background in mechanics of materials, physics and calculus is necessary. Knowledge of computer operating systems (windows or UNIX) and programming languages (FORTRAN, Basic, C) will be useful, but is not required.

Many engineering systems are inherently dynamic in nature. Characterizing and designing such systems requires mathematical modeling, simulation, and visualization using modern software such as MATLAB, SIMULINK, and SolidWorks, possibly with add-on modules. Lectures focus on the detailed applied mathematical modeling of a variety of systems from different energy domains with a bias towards mechanical systems such as mechanical translational, mechanical rotational, hydraulic, thermal, among others. The laboratory has 3 components to it: (1) software training(as necessary) , (2) developing dynamic models using MATLAB and SIMULINK, (3) creating CAD models of systems, and (4) integrating the dynamics models with the visualization to create computer animations of the resulting motions of the mechanical systems. Students also work on a team-based dynamic simulation and visualization of mechanical systems project.
