Scheduling has always been challenging for manufacturing industries, especially for industries such as Automotive, where stopping the assembly line even for a couple of hours could mean the loss of millions of dollars for a company. Some industries also have challenges where the skill matrix could play a huge role in your scheduling as the skills may not be transferrable. If you don't have a sense of how many associates from each skill would show up on the shop floor and if there might be any hot order dropping on unexpectedly, there will always be disruptions on the shop floor. But what can companies do to manage these disruptions?
In today's episode, our guest, Sneha Kumari, shares her insights into how SLAs and resource mix impact shop floor scheduling. She also shares concepts such as the importance of real-time data on the shop floor and how that can help improve the shop floor function. Finally, she discusses concepts such as the tradeoffs between pseudo resources and reduced admin efforts because of it and how change management could play a huge role in whether your team will adapt your initiatives or not.
