Course Description

Lean Laboratory



This two day course serves as an introduction to Lean Laboratory. The workshop presents the concepts, tools, and techniques involved in the practical application of Lean from a pathology laboratory perspective.

This course has been specifically designed to give medical scientists the practical knowledge necessary to implement lean thinking into their laboratories. To achieve this, the course uses a number of practical examples of the successful application of lean thinking across a number of different pathology laboratories.

The concept of Lean was developed in the early 1990s from studies of the Toyota Production System. It focuses on eliminating waste in processes, waste being anything that impedes the flow of work as it is being transformed in the value chain. Lean to coin a phrase means ‘getting the work to where it is needed, when it is needed, in the quantity needed’. Errors, bottlenecks, inefficient process flow, lack of information, duplication of effort and non-value added process steps, all impede flow in the “value chain” of an organisation. Lean uses a variety of tools focusing on the elimination or reduction of these process issues. These tools target improvements in quality, process reliability, workplace organisation, process set-up time and streamlining work flows.
