iNOVAR in Action: Manufacturing
A Fortune 500 manufacturing company with 1,200 hourly employees operating five production lines in a highly complex manufacturing process chose iNOVAR to replace its manual, piece-meal scheduling system. Driven by profitability goals, the company maintains a lean organization and typically relies on overtime to fill out its production teams. With iNOVAR, managers now have the automated company-wide tools they need to streamline schedule creation, determine more accurately whether overtime is necessary, assess the skills of available employees to fill openings, and distribute overtime equitably. Drawing on iNOVAR's robust flexibility, Workgroup Connections customized unique functions that automate the company's complex shift-rotation process—even mapping specific business rules to management decision-making practices--enabling the company to maximize productivity and control costs more effectively.
