Employees Fill In The Narrative
Anyone who has ever worked in production will know the frustration of having an idle machine, through no fault of their own. Using Shiftworx’s narrative feature, employees can fill in the details to complete the reports. For example: “waiting on materials”, “waiting on repairs”, et cetera, would be common examples of feedback related to downtime.
Not only is this type of information incredibly valuable for plant managers striving for seamless production, it is very motivating for the employees, as well. For example, when one individual can see that others are being delayed as a result of their problem, that person is much more likely to resolve the issue at a faster pace. In turn, when a person can see their work is assisting others to be more productive, they feel the motivation to keep going!
