Today’s modern environment has created new knowledge and skill requirements within the workplace. The workforce optimization process is an integral part of the supply chain that drives a manufacturing company’s business strategies, defines its culture and improves its bottom line. Advances in computers and robotics have decreased the need for human labor, while the need for employees with high technical skills, communication skills and problem-solving skills has increased. Ironically, many factories have highly automated production machinery but very paper-intensive business processes. At the same time, companies are under pressure for more rapid product introductions, adaptation to changing market conditions and continuous improvement to optimize costs, quality and efficiency.

Creating Digital Knowledge and Collaboration

AVEVA Teamwork facilitates knowledge exchange and teamwork. Operators can send out an immediate “Call for Help,” alerting experts, maintenance teams, and key stakeholders of the issue, promoting real-time collaboration towards a solution. This system also allows for the creation of a digital knowledge bank, converting hands-on experience into documented solutions for future reference. AVEVA Teamwork enhances production oversight, ensures expertise availability, maintains compliance, and boosts overall efficiency.

Mobile Operator Rounds

AVEVA Mobile Operator facilitates standardized inspections, offering real-time operating data analysis to initiate appropriate responses. By evaluating various factors, such as historical trends, present operating states, and other process-related metrics, AVEVA Mobile Operator guides operators to undertake the right tasks promptly and in line with established procedures, ultimately enhancing safety and dependability.

The problem with the old paper forms was that we didn't know if they were using it right or wrong. If there was nothing on it, obviously they weren't using it. Or the line was running perfectly. We had no idea which. So now we're able to understand how they using our system. And are they confirming the data as we go.”

Digital Transformation of Standard Operating Procedures

AVEVA Work Tasks enables digital creation, execution, and maintenance of standard operating procedures workflows and user interface forms. Operators can access their tasks and data entry forms on both workstations and mobile devices. This system digitizes the entire work and data collection procedure, eradicating the setbacks, inaccuracies, and efforts tied to manual methods. It streamlines the correction process, compliance reporting, and continuous improvement, removing the need to sift through paper forms.

Shift Handovers, Work Instructions, Electronic Logbooks

In many industries, supervisors and plant floor operators operate “in the dark.” They document their daily activities using paper operations logbooks and shift logs. They communicate important instructions and procedures verbally. When shifts are over, this information, which is a critical part of the shift handover process, is often lost.


Digital at the point of entry

Digital at the point of entry means greater effectiveness and efficiency in operations.  As productivity increases, turnover goes down, and barriers to further productivity are reduced. With workforce systems in place, workforce investments are optimized and risks minimized.

Better communications

How long does it take front-line workers to access the information they need to do their job timely and effectively today? Connected workers feel empowered and productive and part of a larger team. Digital workforce optimization solutions improve communications while simultaneously boosting compliance and safety.

Increased business process accountability

Good intentions are not enough. A digitally connected worker system gathers data to evaluate efforts and quantify successes. Our system helps you ensure that you’re measuring what matters by embedding the most effective KPIs.

Raised employee satisfaction

Workforce Optimization solutions ensure better-trained employees. By utilizing electronic procedures, workflows and shift handovers, employees will be more successful and thereby more satisfied. By devoting more resources to adequately training people, the pipeline of qualified applicants will expand to support business growth and generational knowledge transfer is improved.
