I have been working on make R&D labs for couple years. It is based on Toyota’s principles. One way to make it lean is to use ELN – electronic Lab notebooks. But having the organization to buy in is not an easy task. For a start-up is much easier since you need less people to buy in. To make these changes for a large company, better planning will be needed. The above article has a good plan for implementation.
