How to optimize lab processes using lean laboratory – Part 1
Lean manufacturing principles are increasingly being adopted in the laboratory environment. If Lean Laboratory is properly implemented, the results can be impressive, delivering simpler workflows and processes, reduced lead times, and increased laboratory efficiency.
A lean laboratory is one which is focused on delivering high quality results in the most efficient way ̶ in terms of cost and/or speed ─ with the most efficient use of resources. Applying a lean approach is essentially a process optimization exercise, aimed at improving the economic efficiency of an organization.
In Part 1 of this Lean Lab approach webinar you will be introduced to the basic concepts of Lean Laboratory and the 10 fields of improvement, which enable you to assess the current status of your lab and identify where processes can be optimized to improve efficiency.
