Knowledge Manager

Effective and efficient management of innovation (IN the) a valuable force in an increasingly global competition with comprehensive ‘customer insights’, can be seen not least through ‘Social Analytics’. Which makes sense, neatly a poising on sales plateau range under 9001, certified and stamped run to have and while the chance of a ‘ blockbuster-novum’ to miss by essential customer feedback collected not rigid and stringent conclusions are derived through radical innovation? The customers of tomorrow (or is it already?) want to see soon more, namely, that they have to do it with a very quality conscious & innovative company which in the framework of its possibilities (and they’re huge for us all, since ‘open innovation’ and ‘crowdsourcing’) the company or people – / machine possible does to the emerging market products to match wits with,. as long as quality is still King. You can reminisce about the events on the financial market of in recent years, where the rating agencies sometimes forcefully had to lose evaluation credibility, in short the following analog end is close: the control of the controlling system was not ‘tough enough’.

We learn from these examples, so the following is likely to testify: ‘due diligence-innovation’ is the key guarantee of gross margin. With a low overhead at the next change of the QM guide the innovative focus can be integrated seamlessly in the character of the professional innovation management in existing QM: ‘ QM meets IN the ‘. So this needs no extra ‘Add-on’ element, but only the smart integration. This is a ‘low hanging fruit’, which is based on a multiple profit-to-cost lever comparatively. The combined addition of a downstream innovation audit questionnaire is conceivable in balancing consideration. Sometimes, the latter approach would be praferierbar, da recode certification-independent and thus more cost-effective. Redirects should be food for thought in the direction to the value-adding, widest possible integration of management systems, because ultimately it comes to the ‘straight as forward’ electronic company of the future, where a management system itself must lift its weight, and that is easier with some innovative tailwind. Ultimately the all-encompassing information-enriched process workflow will bring probably also the separately documented quality management system itself as descriptive and evaluative instance, however the Knowledge Manager for full integration of corporate information eliminates. Long live the ‘change for value’…In this sense, who wants to respond to above article, was invited to discuss with the author about his preferred channel.

IDENT AutoID Technology Center

Labelling solutions for efficient working in laboratories the products developed for the identification in the laboratory area were in regard to the worldwide leading research facilities for biotechnology, agriculture, environmental and forensic science developed. Whether in the pathology, histology, molecular biology, or other scientific disciplines, the produced complete solutions help staff the GLP compliant lab work. The products meet current requirements for marking laboratory samples robe containers for the purpose of tracking. Labels match the existing sizes for tubes, microscope slides and microtiter plates. The labels are durable even under extreme conditions, E.g.

during storage in the freezer, in liquid nitrogen, autoclave, hot water bath. They are also resistant to solvents, including dimethylbenzene, DMSO, and Ethanlol. Thanks to the convenient function to create and researchers can find more information on the scanning of bar codes Labels accommodate and drastically reduce human error. Hand-written labels versus printed labels for the handwritten labels are the information difficult to read. The color easily blurred when handling. Also fades the color for prolonged storage. The color can be also washed out and removed by chemicals and solvents. The pressure on laboratory labels lubricates and not faded.

The text is crystal-clear and therefore also clearly legible. Therefore much more information fit on the label. The desired labels can be designed quickly and without much effort, and it can be printed. You will receive an improved readability and durability of your labels. The pressure as the label is chemicals and Losungsmittelbestandig. The printed is not washable. Durable labels for laboratory use the even laminierenden or wrap around labels by macro IDENT caption labels provide additional protection against extreme temperatures, chemicals and solvents. The printed text is readable at any time. The caption is through the transparent protective foil overlapped and therefore laminated. A window will make sure that you can see the fluid level in the sample container. The especially thin labels hang in centrifuges or racks fixed, but excellent adhere to different surfaces. The laboratory labels are also highly resistant to liquid nitrogen (-196 C) for storage in a freezer (-80 C) autoclave processes (+ 121 C) and against chemicals such as xylene.
