Federal-Mogul is a global manufacturer of components and systems for the automotive industry and its associated aftermarket. In order to optimize their personnel and planning processes and secure their long-term productivity, two German Federal-Mogul Powertrain Division sites have opted for ATOSS Workforce Management. The two locations are the Nuremberg plant, a center of excellence and production facility for engine pistons, and the Wiesbaden plant, center of excellence and production plant for plain bearings, bushings and thrust washers. In these sites, more than 2,000 employees will be scheduled and managed by our cloud solution. ATOSS Workforce Scheduling will be connected seamlessly to the Time and Attendance Management of the company-wide SAP ERP HCM PT solution via our SAP Connector – full functionality of both systems ensured. Decentralized data, laborious manual processes and plans drawn up on spreadsheets will soon be a thing of the past at Federal-Mogul Nuremberg and Wiesbaden. Instead, rule-based duty plans will be produced at the touch of a button, factoring in statutory regulations, collective agreements, qualifications and time data. Planners can easily assign employees directly to machines by means of drag&drop, as part of workplace-oriented planning.
A qualifications matrix delivers an overview of the skills required and their status at all times. For example, employees are automatically assigned to different machines if multiple qualifications are required at certain time intervals. If qualifications are about to expire, ATOSS Task Management issues a warning. Federal-Mogul Powertrain also relies on this innovative tool to monitor the deadlines defined in the Temporary Employment Act and to manage holiday accounts. If holiday balances exceed a defined threshold on a cut-off date, a report is automatically generated. The next step for Federal-Mogul Powertrain will be to introduce ATOSS Capacity Planning, thereby raising the quality of long-term planning. Greater flexibility in responding to volatile order books is to be achieved across all departments by means of an internal stand-by pool for the plant in Nuremberg. Management and employees alike are delighted by the potential of their new solution. It comes as no great surprise then that the rollout has already commenced at an additional plant for 600 members of staff – in order to reap the benefits of even more planning power from the cloud.
