Production companies must continually work to keep costs under control. Poor shift scheduling on the production floor can lead to increased operating costs, decreased sales, high worker turnover, and soaring grievances. Production managers often spend countless hours on shift scheduling, trying to get their shifts and work schedules just right. Overstaffing wastes payroll dollars while understaffing results in late deliveries and lost sales. Factory shift scheduling presents many challenges. Most production factories operate around the clock (24/7), having many job positions to schedule and multiple 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 availabilities when developing schedules for manufacturing facilities.
