Lundbeck’s laboratory performs cycles of analysis during the testing phases of new drugs and medicines. These analyses are extremely rigorous in terms of timing and quality, therefore it is critical to be sure that all required resources are available when needed throughout the different phases of the testing performed.
The laboratory follows similar processes to the Clinical Trials. Missing the execution window of an analysis can then ruin an entire drug testing. This is a significant cost to the company. As the number of analyses is significant, limited resources and changes in analysis organization are frequent.
The planning and scheduling of all human and technical resources was too complex and cumbersome for the lab manager. The lab manager therefore sought a solution that could help him plan and schedule the entire complexity at once. This would allow him to monitor the execution of all tasks. Until then, he had been doing all these tasks on Excel which complicated the process, and generated costly mistakes.
