With coronavirus lockdown restrictions causing manufacturing businesses to change the way they operate, it’s been a challenge for many to continue with production.
However recent statistics released by the UK’s Office for National Statistics (April 2020) showed 49.2% of adults were now working remotely, a figure that has increased by nearly a quarter of a million in the past decade.
Over the next three years, this number is expected to rise. With social distancing looking to remain for the foreseeable and flexi-time working gaining popularity, manufacturing businesses need to adopt new remote working strategies into their model.
But this can throw up a whole bunch of questions. Can production managers work remotely and access production reports even when off site? Is it possible to compare multi-site efficiencies from afar? And what about continuing to monitor OEE efficiency, is this possible to do from anywhere?
There are many benefits remote working can bring – from reducing commuting costs to increasing staff retention – but it can also improve efficiency in workforces.
