Laboratories are not the same as manufacturing environments. But Lean can and should be applied to labs. A generic approach will not work but careful adaptation of the techniques based on a thorough understanding of Lab processes will deliver significant benefits in terms of productivity or speed or both. While most of the key principles of Lean apply, there are many unique challenges involved in effectively implementing them in laboratories.
BSM is presenting a series of 3 ground breaking webinars that will demonstrate how Lean best practice can be applied in the Laboratory to deliver significant improvement.
