Gale Technologies has joined TesLA alliance
In the long road to full automation, one has to take smaller steps in improving processes, tools, and technology to reach incremental and tangible progress. Lab Automation solutions can be very powerful if deployed properly in your environment, starting with asset tracking and inventory, resource allocations, utilization metrics, scheduling, and device provisioning. Gale Technologies has been providing NEMs and SPs for the past 8 years with automation platforms and choices.
The lack of domain understanding, common automation vision, and integrations between tool vendors has forced the slowdown of automation adoption, and a crop of homegrown internal tools and glueware between tools.
We believe that the Industry has been for few years in search of higher interoperability between vendors in the same space and that the market has reached a level of maturity where standardization is no longer a nice-to-have but a must-have.
Gale Technologies has joined the TesLA alliance to drive the Lab Management SDK committee and help develop a set of specifications and products with aim to standardize the test bed definition and the integration of 3rd party test environments. Such specifications, along with a strong validation and certification program, will facilitate a more rapid adoption of automation and the convergence of a newer set of tools that comply with the TesLA alliance.
Standards are coming your way
Standardized test bed definitions are one of the building blocks of successful automation adoption. With the current trend of lab consolidations and hard economic situations, lab managers are looking for better resource management tools to facilitate the allocation and workflow of owned resources across multiple groups, usually in a distributed environment.
Test bed requirements are also under heavy scrutiny to maximize existing equipment utilization and minimize overbooking.
Take Control Back!
TesLA Test Bed Specifications will allow lab managers and users to define the proper set and level of requirements, highlighting resources and connectivity between those resources – from exclusive or shared allocations, from fine-grained to coarse-grained requirements. Such complex definitions will give Lab Managers back control of their environment. Additionally, the specification will allow vendors to offer graphical tools to build and render the requirements in an intuitive manner.
Don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss the benefits of the TesLA alliance for the industry.
