Implementation of Lean Methodology in Biobanking Operations to standardize sample management processes is effective. Each process has ‘Value Add’ (VA) & ‘Non-value add’ (NVA) components. The non-value add components are considered waste – although it is important to keep in mind that certain NVA components can be required (NVAR) and enforced by regulatory agency and/or company policies. It is important to eliminate waste from the processes as it can lower the profitability, increase customer costs, decrease quality and even decrease employee satisfaction.
The 7 wastes of Lean include:
Motion: Unnecessary movement of people, parts, machines within a process.
Inventory: Raw material, Work in progress, finished goods which isn’t having value added to it.
Defects: People/material that waits for a work cycle to be completed.
Over processing: Processing beyond the standard required by the customer.
Overproduction: Produce sooner, faster or in greater quantity than customer demand.
Waiting: Repetition/correction of a process.
Transportation: Unnecessary movement of people/material between processes.
