The automation scheduling software industry has evolved to allow decision-based events to happen in real time while avoiding resource deadlocks. Older generations of industry lab scheduling software still had a lot of static scheduling components or were plagued by deadlocks when responding to complex resourcing demands. Retisoft’s Genera is a true dynamic automation scheduling software. Decision nodes allow the user to dynamically adjust the workflow and a state-of-the-art look ahead feature prevents deadlocks. The process estimation feature allows you to simulate throughput so that you can make the best use of your integrated system. Genera is a flexible automation scheduling software that meets your needs today and can also change to accommodate future needs. It is a robust lab scheduling software package which is key to keeping your workstation running smoothly....
Building upon the success of previous versions, Genera 6, the latest version of our automated scheduling software was released in 2019. Retisoft clients provided valuable feedback regarding what they require in an automation scheduling software package in order to remain cutting edge. Therefore, the user interface was completely redesigned. It is easier than ever for users to interact with their automated system. Users can visualize the instrument layout via the updated workspace. Process workflows are easy to create using the drag-and-drop interface and the workflow editor was updated to make it easier to view and create complicated workflows. Genera is a device agnostic automation scheduling software which gives users the freedom to integrate the instruments that best fit the science.Read more
Genera is a powerful and flexible lab scheduling software for automating your laboratory processes. With Genera, you can integrate from a wide range of instrument vendors. You can competitively select the best-of-breed equipment to meet your unique lab automation requirements.
