The Labor Productivity Improvement tool meets the needs of supply chain management who are constantly challenged to increase their facilities profitability by either increasing output without adding costs or maintaining output while utilizing less labor costs. RMG’s Labor Productivity Improvement tool provides real-time, highly visible metrics and data that enable employees to see how they are performing against goals, when they can adjust their behavior / production and maximize productivity / profitability.
With RMG’s Labor Productivity tool, supply chain operators can instantly transmit real-time metrics (e.g., picking and packing rates by team or individual members; rankings; actual versus goal performance) via “scoreboards” on large displays and desktop dashboards to employees on the manufacturing or warehouse floor, enabling them to better make informed decisions on a moment-by-moment basis. The data also can be pushed to mobile devices, enabling management to monitor activity from any location or through preset threshold alert notifications.
“When employees see the immediate impact they have on their jobs and where they stand in relation to line or shift goals, they tend to stay on target and work toward exceeding their goals,” said Robert Michelson, Chief Executive Officer and President of RMG Networks. “That translates into improved labor productivity and reduced operational costs for RMG customers. A supplier to a big three automaker, for example, saw a productivity gain of approximately 20 percent in units produced per day, thanks to a reduction in slash defects, re-work and scrap from real-time visibility of performance metrics.”
“In today’s ever changing environment, it is very important to drive the decision making to the lowest possible level for better customer service and for engagement,” states a top 10 U.S. retailer. “RMG Networks allows us to push our metrics, messaging and performance to our teams almost immediately to drive for timely execution.”
The Labor Productivity Improvement solution is targeted to the more than 500,000 distribution centers in the United States, as well as global supply chain operations. It is part of RMG Networks Six in Six Initiative, a plan to bring six new business solutions to the market in six months.
