Company owners and floor managers have numerous questions in mind. These questions are all directly related to how they can initiate the increased productivity levels of their work force operations and make better contributions towards improving upon the company’s bottom line.
Such questions that are asked run as follows.
Managers want to know how they will be able to maintain and/or monitor increased production levels. They also want to know about any new or potential challenges they may encounter and, of course, how to counter them. Just how effective will future or new planning and/or scheduling be in the future, whether carried out by their outsourced EAM solutions service provider, or by the managers and delegated staff members themselves.
What hard tools or software tools will be used? And how will predictive services accommodate the unique cultural ethos of any one company? There are so many more questions being asked of a company and its service provider. This is the response from the outsourced predictive team. A model master plan and strategic design workshop will be set up. Ongoing snapshot assessments will form part of consistently carried out monitoring exercises.
So-called baseline activities will be independently distributed. Ultimately, the planning and scheduling activities (also termed as workforce optimization) will be handed over to the company manager and his staff. Needless to say, training on how to manage effective planning and monitoring programs needs to be instituted in order to allow for user friendliness and ease of use. Of course, the outsourced service provider will need to be associated with the company beyond the consultation and planning stages.
Down the line there will be changes to how the company needs to operate in response to its market forces.
