Regulatory Compliance and Engineering Excellence
Navigating the stringent regulatory landscape, including FDA guidelines, is our forte. At Nectar, we are not only well-versed in FDA regulations but also take a holistic approach to engineering standards. Our multidisciplinary team of engineers, comprising mechanical, electrical, software, and firmware experts, ensures that your design aligns with the highest industry standards, covering ergonomics, safety, materials, and more.
Harnessing Technical Standards
At the heart of our approach is a commitment to technical standards as required by clients and the marketplace, including medical or industrial safety standards such as IEC 60601, mechanical tolerancing such as IEC 610GD&T (Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing) and ANSI/ASME Y14.5, and Software Development Standards such as IEC 62304. These standards serve as globally harmonized documentation requirements, ensuring accountability, understanding and acceptance worldwide.
We understand the importance of designing parts for ease of testing. Whether it’s electronics boards or intricate components, our designs are meticulously crafted to facilitate probing and testing, ensuring that the final product meets and exceeds expectations.
Our design philosophy goes beyond aesthetics; it ensures efficient parts break-ups and fit leading to error-free assembly. Basic assembly instructions or detailed work instructions are created as needed by the product and client. Every piece fits seamlessly into the larger puzzle, reducing manufacturing errors and enhancing product quality.
Thorough Testing and Documentation
The culmination of our production efforts revolves around sufficient testing to guarantee that the product exceeds our customers’ expectations. We ensure strict control over revisions and testing to ensure that the right product is built every time.
Total Cost of Ownership Focus
Nectar shares the concerns of product managers about the total cost of ownership over a product’s lifespan, transcending the initial purchase cost. Devices are meticulously designed and engineered to facilitate cost-effective servicing, maintenance, and upgrades.
