Lean manufacturing principles are being adopted more often in the laboratory environment. If Lean Lab is properly implemented, the results can be impressive, delivering simpler workflows and processes, reduced lead times, and increased laboratory efficiency. 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 about the most significant improvements.
Part 1 of this webinar introduced the basic concepts of Lean Lab and the 10 fields of improvement that should be considered when analyzing the current status of a lab.
In Part 2 of this webinar, experts will give advice on how to identify the actions that have the biggest potential impact on improving lab productivity and determine the next step towards a lean lab. Value stream mapping will be examined in more detail, with examples of how to identify unnecessary steps in an analytical workflow, and how to visualize where issues exist.
