Manufacturing and Service Repair

Current Situation and Challenges

Manufacturing and Service Repair

In the manufacturing industry, 'world-class' is most often defined by innovation, responsiveness, quality and meeting demand. The challenge is to maximize efficiency and contain costs through a manufacturing process and supply chain network that ultimately serves to enhance business performance. Manufacturers need to remain competitive in an economy that demands efficiency. To accomplish that, many have adopted Six Sigma and other lean initiatives. But surprisingly, many have yet to focus on their largest controllable expense: the workforce. For those manufacturers, workforce management remains a manual and error-prone process. It's also a costly one. Paper-based attendance tracking and scheduling systems weigh heavily on the productivity of managers, employees, and operational staff. To address these problems, an organization must face the challenges to managing a manufacturing workforce, including:

  • Aggressive deadlines and fluctuating demands from customers
  • Extreme reliance on overtime and contingent labor to meet objectives
  • Optimize scheduling and deployment by aligning labor resources with customer and business demand
  • Reduce operating costs by making optimal use of existing workforce and minimizing the need for overtime and contingent labor
  • Lower exposure to union violations, employee grievances, and compliance penalties
  • Improve productivity by making real-time decisions based on actual shop-floor activity data
  • Increase payroll accuracy by automating time and attendance and payroll processes
