Full steam ahead – Order linked workforce deployment and management
An impressive total of 1,800 suppliers, 4,600 accounts payable and around 45,000 order items document the sheer magnitude of a shipbuilding project at Meyer Werft. The complexity of such highly individual, custom assignments makes maximum demands on planning and flexibility, as well as calling for optimal resource management
Drawing on an order linked workforce deployment and management solution, Meyer Werft steers and controls personnel deployment for each individual order. This results in higher transparency and enables more effective utilization of working hours.

“An efficient steering instrument is the foundation for a balanced employment situation and budget- oriented production operations, enabling us to master the complex individual custom projects that Meyer Werft specializes in. With our order linked workforce deployment and management we can see at a glance which employees are available and whether they have the required qualifications. By actively integrating the existing working time into the planning process, we can make better use of the normal working hours, and eliminate expensive overtime to an extensive degree.“
