MEYER WERFT: Ship ahoy for luxury liners

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.
