Organizing Medtech Innovation with Concept Maturity Levels

Mathias Béjean, Eliziane Siqueira

Abstract

This paper presents an integrative approach to the maturation of concepts in the field of Medtech Innovation by using Concept Maturity Levels (CMLs). CMLs have been introduced by JPL (NASA-Caltech) during the last decade to cope with the early phases of space mission concept development. Extending well-known TRLs, their strength is to evolve an innovative concept guided by an incremental set of assessment needs. The article draws on an on-going research led in France where CMLs are being tested as a methodology for structuring Medtech Innovation complexity. Exploratory results provide an emerging framework showing what could be CMLs for Medtech Innovation. They also provide insights of why and how they could be implemented as a solid basis to stimulate more formative and adaptive design and evaluation methods.
