The situation & challenges

No future with Excel - With a high demand for their product and a workforce of over 91,000 employees, Siemens Energy faced many challenges in staff scheduling:

  • staff absences at short notice and order requests
  • difficult continuous utilization of machines
  • manual management of data

The solution

In October 2020, shyftplan went live at the Berlin location. The Nuremberg and Mülheim an der Ruhr locations followed shortly afterwards. Since then, we have been used to schedule employees in the required shifts and to handle important parts of employee communication. For the planners, administrative efforts and structural hurdles were solved by the programming interface (API) of shyftplan, which linked to the existing systems of Siemens Energy and thus prevented data breaks. After a very short period of time, the personnel planners and the staff experienced many changes, which gradually brought them closer to the specified goals.

"Instead of planning rigid 2- or 3-shift models, we can now give employees the opportunity to apply for their desired shifts independently. The tool automatically checks whether the framework conditions are met."

– Jan Tornow I Siemens Energy, Berlin

"The agile project implementation was a perfect fit for shyftplan and for us as a service location. The complete implementation within four months in all workshops is proof that shyftplan and the implementation concept worked."

Norbert Brunner | Siemens Energy, Nürnberg

True success: Paperless, seamless coordination of personnel, taking into account machine capacities and order situations, is possible thanks to the intelligent software from shyftplan. Even though Siemens Energy plans up to 4 months in advance, it is feasible to react quickly to changes at short notice. The daily personnel planning effort is reduced by 3 hours and machine utilization is increased by up to 50%. Find out all the details in the whitepaper:
