The pilot project for
ATOSS Workforce Scheduling interfacing with the group-wide SAP® ERP HCM solution, is running at the facility in Hamm an der Sieg. The Automatic Duty Plan and Flexible Workforce Schedule allocating staff directly to machines or workstations deliver even greater planning quality. In future, company first aiders will be planned audit proof with the solution, too. Relevant information such as time corrections or additional payments are automatically fed into the
SAP® ERP HCM system. Complicated manual entries are a thing of the past. Optimized shift plans and lean HR processes – a combination that certainly won’t slow TMD Friction down.
