With the Binocs resource planning solution, you plan the flow of activities in your QC lab:

  • Avoid firefighting by tackling bottlenecks proactively
  • Collaboration between teams never was this easy
  • Teams can estimate their work more quickly and more accurately
  • Get the transparency you need to report on your lean lab’s efficiency
  • Keep up analyst motivation by avoiding last minute planning changes

In June, we held two seminars where we elaborated on resource capacity planning in QC laboratories. In this edition we discuss how we move seamlessly from a capacity plan to a detailed optimized analyst schedule.

A capacity plan allows lab managers to anticipate and level workload while delivering test results timely. It also addresses the interplay between the real test work, which is the core business, and the supporting tasks and projects.

While a capacity plan looks at a horizon of multiple months, lab scheduling runs on a short term which is a couple of weeks. A lab schedule is directly executable and takes into account a multitude of constraints such as qualifications, equipment and analyst availability, work sequencing and priorities.

Here’s what we’ll discuss during this one hour webinar.

Introduction: Why is resource planning a critical success factor for world class lab performance?

Good practices demo with cases as applied at GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and UCB:
  • The transition from a capacity plan with forecast data to a lab schedule with real work
  • Integration with LIMS/ELN
  • Dynamic automatic scheduling
  • How to integrate equipment planning in the schedule?
  • Capturing actuals
  • KPIs
