Optimization of personnel and shift planning
The right allocation of resources and capacities determines success in project management, and especially in production planning. Here, each employee is an important, special resource. Employees cannot be planned in at will, for different qualifications, work time models, overtime accounts, labor requirements, vacation planning, trainings, and sick days make the allocation of personnel capacities complex. At the same time, today’s agile, order-oriented production requires flexible deployment of personnel.
With valantic’s modern workforce management solution wayWFM, users have a tool for efficient, clear personnel deployment planning. wayWFM is incorporated into the waySuite and includes extensive functionalities for automated, optimized allocation of personnel resources taking into consideration needs, qualifications, and capacities.
wayWFM has interfaces to ERP and human resources (HR) software systems from which master data and information about the personnel to be deployed can be drawn. wayWFM receives the capacity required for the workplaces from the wayRTS and wayPRO modules. Based on this information, the software plans personnel deployment automatically. Here it takes into consideration that:
The deployment plan proposed by wayWFM can be adjusted manually if necessary and returned to wayRTS or wayPRO as approved deployment planning and final capacity situation.
Well-founded decisions require transparency. In wayWFM, the demand and capacity situation can be filtered and evaluated per workplace and shift in a quick overview, detailed or according to particular aspects. Planning in valantic’s workforce management solution starts with automatic personnel deployment planning; it can be reworked manually. The shift planners always have an overview of demand and capacities, even of the absences recorded.
With the wayWFM solution, users can minimize sources of planning errors, react more quickly to changes, and further optimize their planning based on evaluations. Personnel deployment planning becomes clearer and based on data and facts. At the same time, there is less planning work thanks to automation.
