Tweak job design to make best use of skilled resources
December 21, 2022
Gig and Take were approached by a global manufacturer to help them assess their worker alignment and gain greater flexibility across their factory.
Our solution helped the manufacturer to divide up the jobs to be done — utilizing flexible workers for low-skilled jobs which both freed up time from their more skilled, full-time employees and saved cost.
- Multiple production lines exist on the factory, each requiring a range of high-skill and low-skill operations
- Gig and Take broke down the job into high skilled tasks (carried out by seasoned machinists) and low skilled tasks (performed by Flex workers)
- Minimal training was required for Flex workers to get onboarded, trained and productive
- Where training was required, Flex workers were cross-trained on jobs such as material handling, basic machine operations and inspection
