Melanie Cunningham is a project manager and compliance expert with over 15 years experience working within heavily regulated industries including medical devices. Melanie began her career as a Manufacturing Test Engineer at ResMed, within the New Product Introduction team. Melanie also performed this role at Ventracor and Nanosonics. As a manufacturing test engineer Melanie was responsible for implementation, verification and validation of manufacturing test systems to ensure products was manufactured to the product specifications.
Melanie transitioned from Manufacturing Test Engineering into Project Management at Nanosonics. Melanie’s two most notable achievements at Nanosonics included the successful project management of the companies first product from concept to product launch, and the project management of that products’ second version from the design phase through to validation (design and manufacturing). Both projects involved cross functional teams with deliverables from regulatory, quality, design (mechanical, electronic, firmware, software), science (chemistry and microbiology), manufacturing and system engineering.
