You have to try to release on time, work on stability, squeeze in projects- without mentioning non- testing activities.
You need skilled technicians with the right mix of expertise to cover the different tests.
Too much manual administration work to maintain lab efficiency and an overwhelming number of Excel sheets to keep track of.
Above all, you need to ensure that samples are tested based on priorities, grouped efficiently while taking into account constraints.
Testing: who when and in what order?
Automatically schedule analysts and instruments
Manually adapt where needed
A user-friendly web application, packed with visual cues and shortcuts, helps you to quickly adapt what you want – you’re still in complete control.
Communicate the schedule to your analysts. Everybody has one source of the truth, always up to date. The Binocs plan board is ready to be projected on a screen or to be printed.
Anticipate capacity needs before they cause problems.
All demand in one place with zero input
Release and stability interfaced from LIMS or ERP. Project work and non-testing activities are interfaced or entered in a user-friendly interface.
Capacity needs to be calculated automatically
Demand is translated into staffing (and instrument) needs to be based on the QC capacity model. The Binocs algorithm checks if there are enough skilled technicians and instruments to deliver on time.
Looking forward and act
Based on the reports you can then:
Run what-if scenarios
Use the numbers to decide
Anybody can run what-if scenarios based on real data to assess and discuss different scenarios.
What’s the impact of:
All based on one QC capacity model
Model the tests and tasks
As a result of value stream mapping and touch time analysis, you can configure the way a test is executed. Binocs will use the configuration to plan and schedule the QC workload.
Each analysis has:
A balanced set of KPIs to drive your performance
Whatever your past has been, you have an impeccable future
Binocs measures planning adherence as well as resource utilization and throughput. What’s more, it will tell you what the expected planning adherence and resource utilization KPIs are for the coming weeks, months and quarters.
