Crewing / Staffing Optimization

Are your people working efficiently for your business? Have you made great process improvements but failed to see the benefits on your bottom line? Without effective labor management financial benefits are quickly lost.

Crew and staffing optimization techniques can be used to reduce labor costs, increase labor utilization, while still maintaining superior service levels.

Key features include:

  • Identification & management of poor labor utilization – achieved through measurement and re-alingment e.g. actual daily staffing needs versus target staffing (based on takt, production, or processing times).
  • Effective scheduling – balancing labor while delivering required customer service levels.
  • Simulation – Using production forecasts, labor simulations can enable capacity and scheduling issues to be addressed early.
  • Continuous labor balance review – comparing fixed versus flexible labor options.

All of this can be achieved while reducing the time currently spent on labor management.
