Identifying untapped efficiency opportunities for research space utilization, operations, and continuous improvement

Discovery Strategy & Operations Lead

To regain control over research space and equipment fleets, step one is to harness actual use data and avoid "under-informed"decisions. Bill Bullock lays out a process to identify underutilized and obsolete research assets through a combination of manual old school and cutting edge digital tools for data and insights, and leverage the results to consolidate, centralize, and standardize tools and square footage, balance workloads, avoid unnecessary capacity increases, and reduce operating expense. He illustrates BMS' scalable approach in breaking down silos and increasing flexibility, and the positive effect on lab designs, space standards, and user expectations.
