Are you facing one or more of these shift operations challenges?

  • You need to optimize equipment utilization, but disconnects between shifts are reducing efficiency and quality
  • The emphasis is on shift production quotas, rather than process improvement
  • Shift schedules are not optimized to match the production demand or employee preferences
  • When problems arise, there is blame rather than root cause analysis
  • Operating procedures are inconsistent
  • Intershift communication is ineffective
  • Late shift employees are "disenfranchised" from the rest of the organization
  • There is a skill imbalance across shifts
  • Leadership and technical support are lacking during the late shifts
