Manufacturing engineer Ankit Gupta of Boston Scienftific Corp. is a proponent of of a "sustaining engineer" model, in which the goal for companies is to improve medical devices over a series of years in terms of patient safety, product quality, regulatory compliance, and business value rather than looking to shed older product lines, from which value could still be extracted. In this excerpt from PN's recent Plastics in Medical Devices 2011 conference, Gupta expounds on that vision.
