Increasing Laboratory efficiency and value
of laboratory data by maximising the use
of common Data Formats
Managing laboratory test data can be time consuming and expensive, especially if inefficient systems are resulting in double or triple entry of data. The introduction and requirement to produce AGS data on the majority of construction projects in the UK, coupled with tough economic conditions have forced UK laboratories to increase their efficiency dramatically.
This paper and accompanying presentation will discuss the merits of AGS data, introduce the two golden rules for data entry and illustrate how AGS data and the golden rules can help laboratories increase their efficiency if implemented correctly. Finally, the benefits will be demonstrated using KeyLAB, the UK’s leading geotechnical laboratory management package.
