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.
