Setting the lab targets for 2021: lab performance KPIs, great. But how can you make them actionable.?

Setting the lab targets for 2021 Webinar

Increasing your lab service levels and throughput starts with actionable KPIs.

But how can you make your lab performance KPIs more actionable? And how can you make sure you are making the right decisions today to reach your targets in the future?

In this webinar you will learn about the three layers of actionable lab performance KPIs:

  • Layer 1: How did we do? What to report for high-level visibility on your lab performance KPIs.
  • Layer 2: Which specific actions can we take? How to perform diagnostics & root-cause analysis to identify potential ways forward to improve your lab performance.
  • Layer 3: Will these actions have the desired outcome? How to score & prioritize the potential ways forward: forecast the impact of all potential solutions, and select the best solution – optimizing return on investment.

The missing link: Adding digital scheduling on top of your LIMS system

The missing link: webinar at Binocs Academy

LIMS systems are invaluable for analytical labs to keep track of received samples, and get an overview of what works needs to be done, and to validate results.

However, there’s a missing link: in order to optimize your service levels & utilization, you constantly have to make sure that the right people and instruments are scheduled at the right time. You also need to optimize the campaigning of samples to increase efficiency.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Digital schedule board versus the LIMS worklist: on-time KPI (committed) vs FIFO (uncommitted)
  • Automated campaigning according to your business rules: optimize utilization, while decreasing planning effort
  • How the digital schedule board works & how schedulers typically interact with it
  • Optimize and dashboard equipment & analyst utilization, service level, value-added time,…
  • Our zero- coding approach to connecting LIMS with Binocs

How to orchestrate cell and gene therapy supply chains?

Let's get phygital: webinar at Binocs Academy

About a year and a half ago, we were asked by a client in the US to help them implement capacity planning & detailed scheduling for manufacturing and quality operations in a CAR-T cell & gene therapy production plant. What are the insights that we have gained since then? And what have we discovered as game-changing elements in the end-to-end supply chain orchestration? You will discover it in Geert’s presentation.

Big Pharma QC labs achieving +40% increase in lab throughput and service level


Labs want two things: execute samples with as little resources as possible (planning efficiency) while making sure samples are executed without delay (planning adherence). However, efficiency and planning adherence are in a constant ‘battle’: focus on efficiency too much, and service levels decrease. Focus on planning adherence too much, and efficiency decreases.

So the key question is: how do you find the sweet spot between throughput and planning adherence?

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The challenges QC labs face when aiming to increase planning adherence & throughput
  • How digital solutions can help to overcome those challenges
  • Insights after investigating some top 20 big pharma QC operations – how is their planning adherence & throughput evolving over time?
  • Some potential hypotheses on how these labs achieved the results they did… And the role digitalization plays.
