Manufacturers today must reign in labor expenses in order to maintain economic feasibility in an increasingly competitive global market. Although most manufacturers have adapted automation when it comes to human resources and payroll management, it is surprising how many plants and facilities have yet to bring their shift scheduling management out of the dark ages.
Whether you manage a manufacturing plant, factory, production unit, mill, or other type of manufacturing company, one thing is certain: manual approaches to scheduling staff are not only huge time sinks, they leave manufacturers vulnerable to costly mistakes that undermine your company’s profitability and operations.
