ZF took on the extensive project of digitalizing the shop floor, starting with the basic building block for more efficient production - shift scheduling.
Kl-supported shift planning for higher employee satisfaction and more productivity
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
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.

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:
