Crafters seem to have “stashes” – a pile of material collected that they intend to use “some day” but that continues to grow to the point where they have too much money and space invested in materials that they haven’t used. Occasionally, crafters come up with “stashbusting” projects that “bust” the “stash.” If you think of your project that way, where you have too many things on the list of tasks (i.e., where you’ve run into “critical path” issues and/or resource blockages), it’s a little bit like that – it’s a pile of something that needs to be conquered.
When I first started my business, I knew there were quite a number of projects that had resources who couldn’t finish their work. I don’t mean that they couldn’t finish in a reasonable time, but that they literally couldn’t finish anything, at all. I knew this partly from working with these projects but also from running into customers who told me about their projects at user group meetings or on the phone. I thought this was the best source of revenue I could find. I was wrong on that account.
This month, GeoMetrick Enterprises turns 23 years old. This month also marks 23 years of working with the LabWare LIMS.
LIMS selection is difficult even if there are many such systems within an industry, and that’s true of ELNs and LESs, as well. By the way, if the title of this seems awkward, it is, but I stopped wordsmithing it and just left it alone.
If you’re looking for product reviews, this blog isn’t the place to look. Every once in a while, one person or another will suggest this to be a good task for me to take on in this blog. That’s not likely to happen. Keep reading for more about why that is.
I recently wrote about the LabWare and the SampleManager systems but the last “big” system I started to learn was the Labvantage (LVS) system. Here are some thoughts to pass along to those of you thinking that that might be your next big adventure.
Today’s blog post was inspired by two search phrases that brought readers to this blog, which are “vgl programming” and “vgl programming syntax”. Strangely, these search phrases were popular on the day I posted about the LabWare LIMS, for some reason.
When we talk about programming the LabWare LIMS, we have to be careful what we mean.
This is a continuation of the last blog post discussing these search phrases that brought readers to this blog: “sap-lims interface” and “sap-lims interface challenges.”
As I like to do upon occasion, today my post is based off of not just one but two (Yes, count them! TWO!!) search phrases that brought one or more readers to this blog. Today’s phrases are “sap-lims interface” and “sap-lims interface challenges.” In this case, though, I’ve already split this into two posts, so this post will give some background and the next post will list some of the most common issues to deal with.
