A four-day course tailored for administrators. You will learn how to create master data and configure LabVantage to suit the data management needs of your company. As a data architect, you will gain hands-on experience in building: tests to include parameters; parameter lists; calculations and units; limits such as detection limits and specifications; approvals and approval types; schedule plans; instruments and analysts; and, workflow basics. You will also learn how to perform some application administration such as configuring user security, creating dashboards, changing the table structure and web page design.
Prerequisites and Target Audience
The LabVantage application has features that can be broadly divided among three user groups: Application Administration, Laboratory Administration, and daily lab operations. This course addresses two of those user groups: Laboratory Administrators and Application Administrators. Completion of the 101-End User course is highly recommended but not required. As an administrator level course, this is not an introductory class. Some advanced knowledge of computer technology is assumed to include perhaps some basic database administration and application server theory.
01 Overview: What is the component architecture of LabVantage? How do I start JBoss as a service? Accessing the server and application logs and managing them through the LabVantage application. The LabVantage console, how to log in and use its basic functionality
02 User Security: Security concepts of LabVantage. How to enable and configure departmental security for shielding data. Restricting access to modules, understanding the role based security module restricting the user access to pages and functionality. Grouping roles together using jobtypes and assigning jobtypes to users.
03 Parameters, Parameter Lists, and Test Methods: Gain experience in architecting your laboratory’s master data making it conform to the types of tests you perform on your samples.
04 Tests: Configure your test methods to handle calculation functions, rounding, unit conversions, detection limits, and review requirements
05 Specifications: Establish your quality control pass/fail limits to have LabVantage flag the results when they do not meet your criteria
06 Reference Types and SDCs: Creating reference lists to be used for result entry or for property setting. Understanding the System Data Collections and learn how to enhance it with user defined columns and reference types.
07 Queries: Design a filter for your web pages.
08 Event Plans: Add business logic to your system which can automate functions to fire when values change for a record.
09 Workflows: Create a flowchart which enforces a standard sequence of execution of tasks. Let users easily identify and execute tasks that are assigned to them.
10 Arrays: Define the types of plates or other storage implements you use for storage and testing of your samples. Configure how plates can be filled with samples and how patterns can be defined when transferring samples from one plate to another.
11 Instruments and Analysts: Identify the instruments that your laboratory uses as well as the calibration and maintenance intervals to make sure preventative maintenance and calibration are performed at the required intervals. Learn how define the intervals on date or usage of instruments.
12 Export Import: Using the configuration transfer tool for the export of data (records and system definitions like pages etc) and import them in another LV system. Learn how to define a Data File Definition to load data from an Excel or CSV file into LabVantage
13 Translations: Managing the translation of field labels, prompts etc used in LabVantage to present them in a different language depending upon the preference of the user using the application.
14 Scheduler: Define schedule plans where the system will create samples and assign tests to them based upon a specific schedule plan. Create a plan to log samples into LabVantage from different sources. See how work orders are generated for the sample collection, manage the work orders and completion of them. The scheduler can also automate the execution of LabVantage actions to make life easier. Learn how this mechanism works and how you can have the system automate tasks for you.
15 Web Page Designer: An introduction to the Web Page Designer studio which allows the user to create and modify web pages used within LabVantage.
16 Dashboards: Understand the dashboard, learn how to create new gizmos and make them available for the user to add to his own dashboard. Learn to understand the different types of gizmos and how each gizmo type has its own way of representing data.
