In cooperation with Supply Chain Media, DSV created a mindmap for Medical Device Logistics with the aim to create an integral overview of the issues currently relevant to this dynamic sector. This mindmap was distributed during the LogiMed conference in Munich and the Healthcare and Life Siences conference in Amsterdam both in November 2013.
With the objective to assess the accuracy of the mindmap and confirm the current state of the Medical Device industry in terms of the major supply chain issues as well as to prioritise the strategic requirements 70 supply chain executives of Medical Device manufacturing companies were interviewed. The results of the study were further interpreted by supply chain experts in the Medical Devices industry.
The questionnaire contained 6 questions in which respondents could select and rank answers. The percentage displayed above each column represents the frequency an answer was selected. The color build up within each column shows the ranking each option got when it was selected. In this perspective, totals of the combined columns are larger than 100% as people usually selected more than 1 option.
