WorkPro Improvement Process
Any Work Improvement process consists of Three Phases:
- Measurement: Measure your Work to know it fully.
- Analysis: Analyse the measurement data, to know the Wastes in that work
- Action Plan: Take suitable actions to reduce the Wastes.
WorkPro is just designed to help you in all the three phases with powerful features and easy to use menus.
In Phase 1, you measure your work systematically and create the Work Study data. You can very well do the studies in factory and all its’ production lines (with multiple products) or a multi-speciality hospital with planned operations in operation theatres or the activities done in the emergency ward of that hospital.
Take this data to Phase 2 and analyse it by the various analysis modules. You can analyze the work methods, the Work Place layout, Ergonomic analysis, etc. You can choose them based on the study requirements.
Work Studies in Organizations
WorkStudy is the work of studying a Work so that the work can be done in a better manner. This is the simple definition of any Work Study. It can be done in any organization where people and/or machines work to produce products or services.
You will find WorkStudy as the only art & science to improve your work and your organization’s working. Whatever be your organizations is – be it private, public, or NGO it can be used.
Well, its first modern day usage started with the British Military and history tells you the success of the British Military. It is a very powerful technique fully based on common sense principles. It takes little but focussed attention to learn and practice this Artful Science.
But at the end of any study, you will find your systematic Work Study achieving the objectives you wanted it to achieve.
WorkStudy can be done for any of the following reasons:
Reason 1: To know how much output can be there (With or Without Incentives)
This is also called the ‘Number game’! You measure the work done by each of the resources used and find out whether you can increase the
through-put by balancing the usage of resources.This is what many organisations do even today and WorkPro can help you do this very effectively. What is more, you can verify the results of the each and every study at anytime, anywhere – even directly in a court of Law!
You can also do Work Study of each operation (which means Time Study + Method Study & Analysis – Certainly not just Time Studies alone) to help the operators first. It will reduce the operator’s fatigue and literally reduce the ‘Body pains. Then you analyse the entire process and balance the activities which will increase the Throughputs thereby the numbers.
This is the “Real Game”! Mere ‘Number Game’ kind of studies – will reduce the productivity in the long run, to say the least.
It can be a ‘Diagnostic study’ done to know what is right and what is not right plus create a ‘Base Line’ of Work Standards
Essentially this is a Total Work Study and not a mere Time Study alone. It involves a systematic analysis of each operation and doing the basic improvements (without any major investment). Then ‘standardising the operations method’ so that it is done better
WorkPro is specially designed for this with a complete set of features and modules.
Reason 3: To Create a Training Session and a SOP
In many companies, no one except the operator knows how a particular job is done. If the operator goes, then the knowledge also goes away. To eliminate this situation, you can quickly do a Video Work Study of any Work and convert it to a Training Lesson by few clicks.
Here WorkPro will Practically work as an LMS (Learning Management System) for you.
You Need to Prioritise: Where you start doing Work Studies and how you do it, depends upon your organizations present & future needs/plans and business priorities.
For many of the companies of today, doing WorkStudy thru WorkPro software means ‘Profit’ at the bottom line plus the improvement in the working lives of your personnel.
Of course, where you start doing Studies and how you do it, depends upon your organizations present and future needs/plans and business priorities.
