The Digital Factory
Pandemic, wars and global warming are much more than historical events. They change the way we think, live and work. Long-term, global trends have emerged. The move away from “just in time” to “just in case” management, the decarbonization of all production processes, the conversion of supply chains to supply networks and remote work mean changes in all production companies.
Markets have never been as dynamic as they are today.
Capacities must be able to be adjusted more quickly in the future.
Supply chains break
Supply chains were yesterday. Today, supply networks are emerging with deliberately multiple sources for all products.
Pandemic, remote work and increasing fluctuation increase the need for flexibility in human resources. Processes must be better documented and managed digitally so that employees can, for example, represent each other more easily.
That forces us to rethink. Workflows must be managed digitally in order to be stable and flexible at the same time. If necessary, a shift must also be able to be performed by a completely new team. Shift handovers must be fully digital and contact-free. Companies must be able to switch between one, two and three-shift models. It must be possible to transfer instructions digitally and directly to the shift operation so that execution is also ensured at night or at the weekend. System maintenance, inspections and repairs must be controlled automatically and, in case of doubt, even be able to be carried out from the shift operation itself.
Such flexibility poses problems for companies. Because efficiency today is achieved through routine and a well-trained, stable workforce. Flexibility requires the exact opposite. Therefore, scaling of personnel, changing processes and changing responsibilities are a heavy burden for operations managers.
Now there is a solution to this problem. Connected Worker Software helps you and your teams to organize themselves in the new, dynamic environment. The digital factory controls the workforce via software-based processes.

The “digitally managed” operation as part of the digital factory keeps instructions, documents, processes and knowledge digitally available. Work instructions, training materials, and checklist-based tasks are transmitted digitally. The company employees use a consistent interface optimized for their needs to record overtime, vacation planning, and record shift events. All information from service instructions to canteen plans can be found in one place.
This is how connected worker software controls the workforce of the digital factory.
