Greetings and Welcome to Adapting Toyota Principles to Laboratory Workflow!

In this course, you will learn the 14 principles of the Toyota Production System translated as operational, specific and adaptable to create a waste free, continuous flow laboratory. Through the study of these 14 principles, we learn tools, fundamentals of work rules, practical examples and the Lean methodology.

These 14 principles as described by Jeffrey Liker Ph.D, serve as the foundation or blue print to create a structure that will allow continuous improvements in the laboratory from specimen collection to report. By operationalizing and applying each principles to laboratory workflow, we identify laboratory waste considered as non value–add tasks and activities, learn how to eliminate inefficiency and improve the workflow.

The eight operational principles adapted to the laboratory to improve workflow are as follows:

Create a continuous process flow

Use the pull system

Use the “Pull System”

Level out the workload

Build a culture to stop and fix problems

Standardization of tasks

Use visual controls

Go and See

Decide carefully by consensus, Implement rapidly

  • Learning Objectives: At the end of this course the learner will be able to:
  1. Discuss a strategy to implement a continuous improvement initiative based the 14 Principles of the Toyota Way
  2. Apply Lean operational principles applicable to specific laboratory processes
  3. Identify potential process improvements based on tools and concepts of Lean

As a part of this course, the learner will complete the following:

  • Many short instructional videos
