Faced with an increasingly challenging environment, it’s time to look at your lab from a different angle.
bioMérieux Industry, as a Food Microbiology expert, has adapted and applied LEAN techniques to meet each lab’s specific needs and challenges.
LEAN is a methodology developed by Toyota for manufacturing and involves a set of principles, practices and methods for designing and improving processes. The main objective of LEAN is to maintain the quality of production with less work and reducing time between the customer request and delivery of final results by reducing or eliminating “waste” (non-added value task).
Based on the combination of our microbiology expertise and LEAN knowledge, we can help you identify opportunities to remove “waste” to optimize your organization and increase your efficiency.
As your partner, we analyze your laboratory to provide you tailor-made, high-performance solutions.
Together we will analyze your lab structure and design a roadmap to optimize your laboratory workflow.
Establish your current situation and processes according to your lab’s specificationsEstimate potential and theoretical productivity gains
LAB PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT
Evaluate workload, resources and space utilization in your laboratoryAnalyze bottlenecks in your laboratory workflow Propose recommendations, new layout and road map tailored to your lab
Implement layout effectiveness and work station designReach the productivity gains expected
Enhance your lab performance by applying continuous improvement tools and involving your lab staffSustain and optimize your working conditions
Graph: Spaghetti diagram of current workflow (BEFORE) and new implemented workflow (AFTER)
BEFORE : Flows crossing and lots of transports, movements
AFTER : Forward motion and reduced fatigue for the lab staff
bioMérieux Lab Consultancy recommendations lead to new optimal lab layout with continuous flow, a more streamlined workload, and increased productivity: minimum 30% improvement gains.
“The Lean approach to optimize quality indicator testing in a food microbiological laboratory” presented and accepted to IAFP European Symposium, Poland, 2012.
“Thanks to Workflow Optimization, our lab has gained efficiency (41%), flexibility, and it helps us to manage our daiIy variable workload.I would really recommend this process as it allows us to continuously improve our performance.”Ana Martins, Lab Manager, ControlVetTM, Portugal
