Ready to help meet today’s critical workforce challenges and prepare for tomorrow

Part 2

During this time of global crisis, as more of the world’s population has been asked to stay home from work, non-essential businesses are suffering dramatically. In addition, businesses tasked with producing essential supplies are trying to cope with maintaining production.

Ultimately, there will be a relief from the crisis, and demand will grow again. The challenge will be whether companies have planned correctly to ramp up the workforce at the right time and with the right skills to capitalize on the resurgence. At Dassault Systèmes, we have been solving these types of complex workforce puzzles for many years and think we can help make a difference during these unprecedented times. Planning required staffing levels given variability of demand, skill sets and working environments has been a core capability of the DELMIA Quintiq solution that can be applied today.

The extent and duration of reduced demand is largely still unknown and could re-emerge just as dramatically. Planning can consider multiple scenarios with workers perhaps ready to resume at a moment’s notice.

Staffing constraints will now include working from home and social distancing. Additionally, employment costs need to be considered (including governmental financial support).

DELMIA Quintiq has been used extensively to solve these types of workforce planning problems. We have developed a methodology that can help companies. Specifically as follows:

  • Optimize staffing levels and allocations based upon multiple potential demand scenarios
  • Maximize employment while minimizing costs with fairness and impartiality to staff
  • Generate optimized shift mixes and patterns to cover expected demand
  • Visibility of all required work, employee availability and skills

DELMIA Quintiq can provide all of the above capabilities in a collaborative environment that provides easy to use planning boards and self-service apps for efficient communication with employees.

How Will We Do It?

Focusing on critical data needed to support essential decision, our methodology is both rapid and pragmatic. By using a packaged and hosted solution, we can start providing value within 30 days.

This rapid implementation will enable stakeholders in key roles to be able to make better decisions and have a tangible impact on value for the company and, just as importantly, personal value for as much of the workforce as possible.

We stand ready to help make a difference today. By working together, we can have an impact on meeting the challenges of today’s crisis and help prepare for the future.
