ResMed manufactures products that help people with sleep apnea and other respiratory conditions. ResMed aims to keep its development and manufacturing costs low through process improvement suggestions from its employees. Its Core Engineering team was using a manual system both to capture ideas for its Continuous Improvement initiative, and track the status of those ideas through evaluation and implementation. In March 2010, ResMed deployed Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, and created a solution based on Microsoft OneNote 2010 to develop and track new ideas. ResMed expects its new solution to deliver faster implementation of process improvements, leading to greater efficiency and cost savings.
