Lab Inventory Requires Batch Production and Quality Control

Lab inventory management was a top priority for a new venture within a university. Inventory was produced in batches, required quality control and each batch produced multiple units of product. At any given time, the lab manager needed to know whether a particular unit was available for distribution, and if not, what was holding up its availability.

The lab manager also needed to know when inventory of units was getting low so that more could be produced. Using a FileMaker Pro database that includes bar coding, batch and quality control, as well as inventory on hand quantities, the lab manager has the tools needed to successfully manage and control lab inventory.
