A Boston Scientific medical device is used somewhere in the world every two seconds, but the company is much more than a medical device manufacturer. The firm’s lean engineers and supply chain engineers help hospitals not only with inventory management and logistics but also with process improvements in catheterisation labs, for example. In the late 1970s, Boston Scientific’s initial success was built on guide catheters and balloon catheters for coronary artery treatments.
