“This is how you should do it but let me show you how we usually do it,” is something I used to hear all the time during training. Employees often look for ways to speed up their tasks and work around the protocol that slows them down or creates more work. Once they have what they think is a faster, more efficient way of doing a task they will get into the habit of avoiding procedures and protocols. As a new employee, it’s easy to take on these habits as your own.
Being a manager, it’s hard to notice when the procedure is no longer being followed. For example, it’s quite normal for people to put fake numbers so they don’t have to manually check 100+ measurements, and reasonably so! However, this is a huge issue for environmental and safety standards, not to mention the future production outputs if something has been missed.
It’s probably just best to assume this is happening and try to over design your procedures for ease and automation.
With the aid of big data analysis, AI, sensors, remote monitoring, alarms, and holographic technology it’s quite possible to avoid the pitfalls of human error. For example, sensors could automate the tracking of machine health, this data would compile, and it could be analyzed by AI for irregularities. Employees will have a lot more time to prioritize necessary work if they are not forced to complete these tedious tasks throughout the day.
At HubHead we believe in software that is designed to eliminate the tedious and repetitive tasks that bog employees down. We believe in aiding employees with data at their fingertips and removing the possibility of human error.
