Are you curious to discover the digital twin of your lab performance? What it looks like? You have probably seen a lot of theoretical models and abstract articles about it. In this workshop, we will make it tangible and build it up together with you.
Automated lab scheduling enables your team to move away from firefighting and allows it to work more efficiently and optimally.
Forecasting potential bottlenecks in the upcoming weeks and months have never been easier. With “what-if” scenarios, you can identify the right solutions in a few clicks.
Join our workshop to learn how to build a digital twin of your lab performance using these 5 building blocks:

1. Model your capacity: instruments, people and their competencies, who can execute which method, how these capacities evolve with time (hiring, people getting qualified for additional methods…)
2. Gain control over all your demand sources and model demand which is not yet known in LIMS.
3. Configure standard times and internal business rules that determine how you work. “Shall we start the tests campaign immediately or wait a bit for additional samples expected this afternoon?”
4. Define how you schedule. “Daily or a weekly basis? By shift?”
5. Decide which planning reports and lab performance KPIs you need and which ones you want to share.
