Many thanks for the overwhelming interest in the Lab Management Conference, which took place for the sixth time, this time under the motto "Lean, digital, virtual, global, connected, 4.0 - all keywords". On 06. and 07. March 2018, more than 70 experts and representatives of renowned manufacturers and independent test laboratories met in Nuremberg to exchange experiences and innovations.
Many keywords, such as Lean, digital, virtual, global, networked, 4.0 repeatedly appear in our everyday lives and occupy us permanently, even if we do not perceive it directly.
Do these increase the demands on laboratories? Do certain topics need to be implemented faster, could that work together faster? Is there a data exchange between clients and laboratories or is it all document-oriented?
But other topics and framework conditions such as the 17025, flexible accreditation, etc. are constantly changing as well.
These are exactely the questions that were discussed in the lab management conference and highlighted by presenting concrete solutions with different approaches and different motivations from different perspectives.
Ten presentations and the accompanying exhibition on the first day provided plentiful opportunity to deal with the topics and above all to intensify the exchange of experience with colleagues from other companies.
Here you can get an overview of the presentations and the exhibition. A few impressions and votes of the participants complete the picture. Note: available in German only.
