Inefficient shift scheduling on the manufacturing shop floor can lead to increased operating costs, decreased sales, high worker turnover, and soaring grievances. Factory managers often spend countless hours on shift scheduling, trying to get their shifts and work schedules just right. Over-staffing wastes payroll dollars while under-staffing results in late deliveries and lost sales. Manufacturing shift scheduling presents many challenges. Most manufacturing production factories operate around the clock (24/7), having many job positions to schedule and multiple sites and shifts to cover. Within each shift, factory workers must also be assigned to various tasks or work orders. Union and FLSA rules may place restrictions on work hours, overtime compensation, and the types of shift rotation that can be implemented. The schedulers must also consider time-off requests, labor rules, and worker availability when developing schedules for manufacturing facilities.
