It’s All About Sharing

Reduce Production Time, Boost Productivity
Based on the manufacturing industry-proven Kanban methodology, Dental Wings Lab-Kanban™ improves productivity by creating dynamic worksheets and schedules that are always synchronized with the latest changes in case information and priorities.

Dynamic Schedules
Dental Wings DWOS Lab Management software creates dynamic employee schedules based on Lab-Kanban™, the current workload across the entire lab, and the requested delivery dates. As priorities and workloads change throughout the day the master schedule as well as the individual schedules are automatically updated to optimize the overall throughput of the lab.

Employees have access to a dynamically updated individual list of tasks and cases in order of priority, providing them online case details, notes and documents.  Lab employees won’t waste time tracking cases or trying to estimate which case to handle next, making it easy for them to focus on what they do best – adding important value to lab output.
