Many companies draw up a new capacity plan with shift rostering for the personnel every year. This plan matches the scheduling of the working time of the employees to the projected workload. So in order to draw up a new capacity plan, you need a whole load of facts and figures from previous years. Generating the right data with the right metrics is a major challenge for many companies, because so many factors have an impact on capacity planning.
Déhora has designed its own capacity analytics tool that can be used by companies to generate and collect the necessary data about work activities, workforce capacity, and absenteeism percentages. This data can also be used to draw up accurate budget forecasts. The capacity analytics tool enables you to make sound tactical decisions for your organisation based on reliable information.
The most important advantage of good capacity planning is that it makes the shift roster planning process less chaotic for your personnel. It means they won’t be unpleasantly surprised by overtime and sudden changes in the shift roster, plus it will make your workforce planning, and thus your business operations, much easier to manage. Other benefits include:
Within seven working days, you will have a clear and concise report that shows how good the alignment is between the available workforce capacity and the operational workload on a weekly basis. We can also give you advice about how to improve this alignment and make it easier to manage your business operations.
