From Crisis to Recovery: How Connected Worker Technology Can Align Management and Industrial Workers
Real-Time Job Completion Dashboards
As plant managers can no longer easily walk around the factory floor, how do you remotely enable your team, while ensuring communication and collaboration with one another? Connected worker technology can be used to digitize paper-based procedures, including critical safety steps, and capture every action performed.
Operations managers need to be able to react in real-time to unproductive processes that could result in an unsafe situation, expensive machine failure or contaminated products making their way to market. With connected worker technology, real-time alerting provides the assurance that workers are adhering to the company’s intentions, procedures and contractual SLAs.
Connected worker technology allows management to be alerted of the issue the moment it happens, and oversee the resolution of that issue digitally and remotely. Informed by the right data, procedures can be immediately updated so injuries and quality impacts are avoided.
Remote Issue Management
Manufacturers must stay connected across teams and locations, particularly as physical distancing and stricter employee safety measures are put in place. With connected worker technology, plant managers can manage issues remotely and reduce reaction time when problems arise.
In a connected worker environment, data can be captured and analyzed right away. Management can compare one line or factory with another, or one work team with another. What’s more, important details of each process can be easily measured.
