I have been with the medical device industry for a decade. The decades before that was spent with heavy construction, automobiles, consumer goods on a host of interesting assignments.
Process engineers are a much sought out skill with medical device companies. It takes about 6 months to get the right engineers with the right skills.
The fast growth in the medical industry has contributed to this.
The sad part is that 75% of the work done by these highly skilled engineers is consumed by mounds of documentation work.
So, what is the moral of the story?
Should be a good Six Sigma project.
