My company specializes in contract manufacturing of medical devices, but have done many development projects for our customers. We have a new drive to develop our own proprietary products based on inputs from our marketing/sales team. There has been a lot of turbulence in this because the expectations of marketing are not in sync with the engineering development steps (discovery, planning, testing, design iterations, etc).
Clearly some procedures need to be in place to get everyone on the same page. I was wondering if there are any industry standards out there that I could start with or read up on to help form our own program.
