How an Electronic Lab Notebook Supports Scientific Knowledge Management in R&D

Gain Predictive Control Over Key Processes in R&D

R&D organizations are always looking to streamline knowledge management. Electronic laboratory notebooks (ELNs) are fundamental to these initiatives since they can both produce and consume data. Capturing multiple types of data with an ELN can link key observations and provide a single source for other tools to mine experiments.

Effectively implementing an ELN in science- and process-driven organizations provides the first step toward true scientific knowledge management.

This use case describes the broad organizational benefits that BIOVIA Workbook made possible for a global pharmaceutical company, highlighting how the system is supporting efforts to gain predictive control over key processes in R&D.
