The Final Paper:
my week one post:
In a manufacturing organization, the rationale for improving productivity is not centered around increasing resources or creating changes that impact the business dynamics. Rather, the pre-existing workgroup and systems are progressively advanced enhancing their effectiveness over time. Manufacturing enterprises measure productivity based on increased revenue and time utilized to accomplish tasks.
In manufacturing a huge investment is made on equipment and personnel. I would examine the level of training and skill that each employee in a group has since a deficiency in fundamental capability in a single employee can affect an entire group’s productivity. Groups tasked with accomplishing similar objectives require to have similar strengths to be effective in their responsibilities.
I would identify employee training programs that grow the individual strengths and skills. A productive team is centered on maximizing individual strengths and eliminating weaknesses, therefore, becoming a more efficient labor force. Continuous training ensures that the manufacturing process has fewer wastages and employee’s performance is higher improving productivity.
I would examine the application of technology as a means of streamlining operations. The use of industry-specific technology can have huge implications for productivity. In a manufacturing organization, there are various software’s and applications that reduce time spent on tasks while speeding interdepartmental collaborations. Since time is crucial in enhancing productivity, the tools yield higher performance in employees.
