Why do we have a shortage of Medical Device Design and Process Engineers?

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.

This concept can work for all professions and industries. There is a need for diagnosis in the engineering, manufacturing, finance and services.
