WorkforceInsights is a smart productivity measurement tool for the manufacturing sector which tracks time spent by workers on each job card or product part on the production floor. The tool provides valuable insights into productivity measurement and performance variance of individual workers, assembly lines, workstations and departments across the organization.
View daily productivity charts and variance data across all workstations on the production floor and compare them with global benchmarks.
Compare inter-departmental performance based on degree and measure of variance with the individual production benchmarks
Get individual worker’s performance by date. Compare daily and weekly variance with station and department benchmarks.
Measure productivity data across products or product parts and analyse fluctuations, trends and patterns (particularly when new tools or technology is introduced).
How it Works
Equipped with a digital scanner, the WorkforceInsights tool is easily accessible on a
worker’s mobile phone. Using barcode scanning technology, the time taken for job
completion is recorded against an individual worker, product, workstation or department.
Daily, weekly and monthly production data is analyzed through data inspection and
comparison of time spent across all variables.
Rich graphical interactive views provide snapshots on variance data and production metrics. Interactive dashboards provide the ability to cross-reference between departments and individual workers and from product and product parts to the individual workstations. By comparing time data with individual and global benchmarks, early detection mechanisms can be triggered to identify specific problem areas and avert emergencies.
WorkforceInsights can be easily connected with an organization’s ERP, HR and other applications like production scheduling systems and attendance software. With its API led connectivity, it can establish bi-directional data exchange with both in-house and cloud based systems. This allows the tool to work seamlessly with the existing systems without any modification of an organization’s core applications.
Why is it Useful?
WorkforceInsights can be invaluable for understanding Performance Measurement Systems (PMS) and its corresponding metrics. The real-time insights provided by the tool can help an organisation under a Lean Manufacturing (LM) environment to identify and rectify bottlenecks as they appear without having to wait until a problem physically surfaces and is blown out of hand.
