Lab management practices are becoming more and more important to achieve an effective balance between testing services and research testing, within the same laboratorial facility.

The harmonization of lab management practices is also important to provide companies with services under the same quality standards within different countries and regions. Issues like calibration, results registering and analysis, samples identification and tracking, are of major importance for a textile products laboratory to provide top quality testing services and competitive research to industry.

Organizational management systems, like ISO 9000, ISO 14.000, innovation management standards and others, are almost mandatory to be competitive in the present global economy. Some of the topics addressed within this area are:

  • Testing standards and results analysis
  • Calibrations
  • Testing procedures
  • Organizational management systems standards
