Laboratory information management systems (LIMS) is designed considering the need of analytical laboratories to carry out the research in fast, efficient and transparent manner with better accessibility of the instruments.Its development started as an in-house project then moved to custom built solutions followed with open source LIMS, first LIMS were developed in the pharmaceutical and related industries for use as a Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) tool in the early 1980's by in-house development departments or under contract by external software houses. Further, it is commercially developed by using the latest tools in information technology and based on the need of the laboratory it has gotmany varieties. Various sectors like agriculture, environmental and water, food and beverage, manufacturing, product quality and cyber forensic analysis etc. uses full-enterprise LIMS in their operations. It was found that the LIMS applications are not running properly due to its limitation such as improper installation, poor implementation,lack of technical access etc. This paper highlights the review of developmental stages of LIMS and some shortcomings for attaining the total quality management in a laboratory that ensure efficiency, enhanced productivity, better utilization of resources and security measures etc. An effective management system totally depends on the laboratory infrastructure. Hence, proper study of the laboratory functionalities is required before going ahead with the solution
