Experiences from paperless scheduling and performance follow up


During this workshop we’ll show how Binocs as the digital twin for the laboratory resource management, covering scheduling, planning and performance management.

Scheduling digitalizes the planning whiteboard, digitalizes lean lab practices and automates combining samples into runs in an optimal way, assigning resources optimally to confirmed work,… This is about short term scheduling of people and equipment on day basis.

Capacity planning simulates how demand and capacity compare in the coming months & weeks. Use this to verify resource/ competence bottlenecks before it’s too late; use Binocs in decision making about certain scenarios (can we accept an additional order?), steer outsourcing/ external staffing. Horizon is weeks, months, even up to years. Planning is done in week buckets.

The Binocs Performance Twin module delivers a digital replica of your laboratory performance. Use the Binocs Performance Twin to visualize past & future KPI’s like utilization, planning adherence, right first time…
