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 improved laboratory productivity. In the second part of the Lean Lab webinar, you will get advice from experts on how to identify the actions that have the biggest potential impact on improving lab productivity and determine your next step towards a lean lab.
A lean laboratory is focused on delivering results in the most efficient way, in terms of cost and/or speed, with the most efficient use of resources.
Operational changes – such as optimization of workflows and workplaces or standardization of equipment and software – can be initiated one step at a time. Often it is the simplest or smallest changes that can bring the most significant improvements.
In the first part of the webinar “How to optimize lab processes using lean laboratory – Part 1” we introduced the basic concepts of Lean Laboratory. In Part 2, you will get advice from experts on how to identify the actions that have the biggest potential impact on improving lab productivity and determine your next step towards a lean lab.
This webinar will focus on the following topics:
- Identify the next step to improve lab productivity and efficiency
- Understand how to eliminate unnecessary steps and optimize workflows
- How to measure the performance of your lab and which KPI’s to use
