ZF took on the extensive project of digitalizing the shop floor, starting with the basic building block for more efficient production - shift scheduling.
Learn how we helped a delivery service company with more than 250 employees across three locations deal with daily order fluctuations and short-term cancellations.
In 2016, we developed a solution together with STADTSALAT, which the company now uses to automate the shift schedules of currently about 200 drivers. Especially the shyftplan functions "independent shift application" and "request for shift transfer" were frequently used by the employees. The automatic processing by the software has thus made the work of the shift planners at STADTSALAT extremely easier.
Since the beginning of 2020, the algorithm of shyftplan generates the shift schedule automatically - entirely according to the needs and rules of STADTSALAT. By minimising the effort required for shift scheduling, employees were able to concentrate on their core business again: bringing fresh salads to their customers as quickly as possible. Efficiency was increased and the costs for preparing the accounts were reduced. STADTSALAT can now invest these freed-up resources in other projects and thus move the company forward.
