This Report examines Lean in the Laboratory. It looks at the typical issues that arise in Labs and how to Apply Lean in the Laboratory - Key Principles that always apply.
Laboratories are not the same as manufacturing environments. While most of the key principles of traditional Lean still apply, there are many unique challenges involved in effectively implementing them in laboratories. BSM has developed methodologies and solutions specific to the Lab environment which minimise non-value add activity and maximise throughput and/or velocity.
