Inventory Manager saves lab +16,000 hours per year at a Fortune 500 company

Challenge

A Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company wanted to raise productivity so they could stay competitive and increase shareholder value.

After an in-depth assessment, an Avantor Lean Process Consultant found the scientists were spending more than 36,000 hours every year searching for supplies and doing other non-essential lab inventory management tasks — time that could have been spent on research.

Summary of results from Lean business process assessment time studies

Solution

Our consultant recommended Inventory Manager, our point-of-use online inventory software that ensures scientists have the right supplies at the right time. Using industry-leading technology, the program identifies and concentrates the supplies each laboratory location and work area needs — then tracks usage and continually optimizes stock levels.

These changes were supported with updates to the organization’s lab procurement process, including assigning a single point of contact for infrequently ordered items and streamlining channels for handling procurement issue resolution.

Result

The Fortune 500 company now saves more than 16,000 hours every year — the equivalent of about eight fulltime scientists. Our software to manage inventory removed nearly $75,000 of excess inventory and decreased the average value of on-hand lab supplies at each facility by 29%, from $521,000 to $373,000.
