The lore of laboratory automation includes more than one story of a carefully designed and constructed integrated robotic system that was placed into production only to be shut down the very next day because "the hard drive filled up with data." Estimating the amount of data that will be generated, the rate at which it will be generated, and providing a suitable repository, are tasks that must be completed before the automated system goes into production. Numerous topics and considerations come in to play when planning for the management of data generated by automated laboratory systems.
