The Art of Parts: How Technical Prospects Ensures Quality Medical Imaging Parts
Even a well-maintained Siemens medical imaging machine will eventually need to have parts replaced. But, imaging engineers might not always be anticipating a part’s failure, or know who to contact for help replacing it. So, when the urgent need to replace a part occurs, the replacement process might not go as smoothly as expected.
For instance, an imaging engineer might go straight to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), which seems like a logical move. But since OEMs are focused on delivering quality, complete machines, individual replacement part prices from an OEM can be high.
Conversely, an engineer might looking to save their department some money, so they do a little research online and order from the cheapest source, only to receive something that looks like it came from the junkyard. With the part’s remaining life being questionable, and the likelihood of more downtime on the horizon, the engineer can’t help but ask, “Did this part save us any money?”
