BSM has produced a number of articles and reports on Lean Laboratory. These include:
Incorporating Lean Principles into the design and layout of pharmaceutical labs will deliver significant operational benefits. BSM has collaborated with other Lab Design stakeholders including FLAD, JACOBS, FOSTER WHEELER and end users at Novartis to compile a unique white paper “Incorporating Lean Principles into Pharmaceutical QC Laboratory Design: building design influencing laboratory behaviours and effectiveness” outlining how labs can be designed to proactively support lean processes and operational excellence.
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.
This article examines the Factors Affecting Laboratory Performance, Recipes for a Successful Lean Lab, The 4 Key Components for a Successful Lab, and Likely Results.
"The focus of a lean laboratory is to test samples in the most efficient way possible in terms of cost, or speed, or both. Although most of the key principles of lean apply in labs, the specific challenges facing laboratories require significant adaptation of standard lean tools."
