Success factors and stumbling blocks involved in running a shop floor board with international and multicultural teams
Lean management has expanded in scope to establish itself in corporate functions beyond production. In present-day laboratory operations, it forms a basis for optimized processes and efficient quality management, providing valuable tools for the digital transition to Laboratory 4.0.
Minimum Weight and Routine Testing According General Chapters 41 and 1251
Weighing is one of the key activities carried out in every QC laboratory. Usually, it is one of the first parts of a whole analysis chain. As any weighing errors have the potential to propagate through the whole analysis and deliver an inaccurate final result, the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) ...
The new definition of the SI base unit of mass and its significance to the weighing world
For about 200 years, any mass given in kilograms, grams and micrograms referred to a defined artifact accessible in only a single location on earth. A small metal cylinder had represented one kilogram since the metric system was introduced in France. Its successor became world famous as the ...
Optimizing the usability of measurement instruments in centralized lab software systems
Easy access and navigation of historical measurement data stored in central laboratory software systems is important to support the documentation and, in particular, the traceability of measurement results. For some instruments it is also useful to grant users access to past measurement data.
A value stream analysis reveals worthwhile starting points for implementing lean laboratory processes
The process industry is seeing manufacturing structures change, production chains becoming global and higher requirements placed on manufacturing processes. Businesses need to adapt to declining sales volumes and the demand for more specific product characteristics.
Industry 4.0 concepts that support regulatory compliance and data integrity in lab environments
A few years ago the term “Industry 4.0” was used to describe a future vision of digitized production. This concept is now being implemented by industry. It is characterized by a high degree of automation and networked processes, without which global competitiveness would no longer be achievable.
Smart and networked solutions pave the way to the laboratory of the future
Laboratory 4.0, the internet of things (IoT), big data, cloud computing or storage, blockchain, cybercrime, thingbots, predictive maintenance, artificial intelligence et al.: the thicket of buzzwords is getting denser almost by the day. They feature in just about every newspaper article about ...
First-Defect-Stop helps to improve quality through sustainable and reliable processes in weighing
The management concept “Lean Laboratory” is increasingly being implemented in the laboratory environment, with the aim of optimizing efficiency. An essential approach here is the “First-Defect-Stop”, which is based on the Jidoka principle and refers to the earliest possible identification of ...
The new world of automated dosing
Every scientist studying at university was confronted in chemical practicals with the problem of dissolving a given powdered substance in a given solution and producing a solution with the prescribed concentration. The first step was to weigh. Armed with a spatula and a small sheet of weighing ...
GWP® (Good Weighing Practice™) Life Cycle Management – 5 steps that support the Lean principles perfectly
A Lean Laboratory focuses on testing products and materials to deliver results in the most efficient way in terms of cost and speed. An accurate result for the customer is a pre-requisite. However, to guarantee accuracy of a weighing device over time requires using the correct balance as well as ...
