Peter Holst, MS FPrin, LLC

Peter Holst, Founder of FPrin LLC, has over 30 years of experience in R&D and product development in the field of medical devices and equipment.  He has experience with visual field testers, IV and enteral pumps, surgical robots, cholesterol testers and glucose meters.  He is experienced with drug delivery technologies for liquid drug formulations as well as pulmonary and trans-dermal methods.

Peter is a strong proponent of data driven design methods known as “Lean Engineering” or “Knowledge Driven Product Development”.  With these methods the outcome of the design process is a design that is well understood and characterized – by analysis, modeling, and simulation – by directed testing, typically at the sub-system level.  Using this process the design can be characterized as “will work” rather than “can work” before making major capital commitments.  Peter has experience in design for high volume manufacturing using various component manufacturing methods including plastic injection molding, metal injection molding, casting, powder metal, sheet metal and machined components.  He also has background in the design of low volume capital equipment medical mechanisms and systems.

Peter has a BSME from Northwestern University and an MSME with a concentration in dynamics and controls from Santa Clara University.
