So will iPhone and iPad a mobile workstation the change of staff structures provides the company a new task: is mobile to provide the employees with information and to involve them in the operations outside the Office. Mobile devices now to fully equipped work places are using modern software solutions. Freiburg, July 20, 2010. The staff structures in the company have changed considerably in recent years. Meanwhile, about two-thirds of the workforce are so-called knowledge workers, so workers, the information, ideas and expertise, process or distribute.

In addition, that many employees now often spend more time outside the Office as to their actual place of work. You meet customers and partners, take part in conferences or working from home in the so-called Home-Office. This is the companies face a new challenge: knowledge workers can do their jobs efficiently, they must on the one hand of anywhere access have all important company -, product – and project data. It is important that they can not only get the data, but if necessary, also change or update. In addition, it must be possible for the management to intervene outside the Office in operational procedures – for example, to approve a holiday or investment application. Only this ensures a smooth flow of business processes. Mobile devices such as Smartphones (iPhone, BlackBerry, etc) and Tablet PCs (E.g. the new iPad) are now powerful enough to enable efficient work away from the Office.

Even the most complex business applications to manage it without too long loading times. However, today’s knowledge workers in addition to the hardware needed also the right software to work efficiently outside the Office. While there are a number of mobile business apps on the market now, but usually these are a single field (for example, the customer management) limited. You want a full access to all important business data of the company, one is forced to install a wide variety of applications on the device.

Study of the FELTEN group: majority still inadequate conditions to the analysis of the performance values of the boardrooms of the manufacturing companies expect a controlling of production processes in increasing measure, but this not the necessary conditions according to a survey of the FELTEN group mostly still exist. Often lacking in particular methodological procedures and technical support, also the performance measurement systems are often inadequate. “Although the production in the past is not entirely come out without a controlling, it was however neither systematically nor consistently and with depth of possible today”, explains Werner Felten, Managing Director of the FELTEN group. A control function was more based on the previous selective approaches, while controlling production represents an analysis and control instrument according to today’s understanding to the optimization of production conditions. It derives from methods, which have already established themselves in the business processes.” So it is not surprising also that in more and more Company management a meaningful and effective production management expected. In almost every third case this requirement already exists, 19 percent of the over 200 production managers surveyed must deal only for a short time with this topic.

Another group of 22 percent but already senses that it is brought to them. However, the necessary conditions are only rarely, to perform a systematic controlling of the production. Not once every fifth manufacturing company is fully capable to do so, the others can realize this requirement only with different restrictions or not at all. Especially lacking in three out of five cases in technical assistance and analysis methods, to measure and evaluate for optimization measures the performance of the production. Similar to often lack an adequate performance measurement system. Half of the respondents but also admits that in the production management has not yet sufficient controlling powers exist, partially also the benefit of controlling production is doubted and it lacks its acceptance among employees.

In addition, 40 percent of the production manager lead that they would have staff resources for controlling tasks enough. In this point, Felten but sees a significant miscalculation. Modern total productive management solutions automatically detect all the production process data and generate automatically individually defined reports, therefore a production management generates no significant additional cost,”he stressed. Because the idea of TPM is precisely to determine the cost-effectiveness of production and to make it possible, targeted to exploit resources and optimize machines and systems. The early identification and elimination of production errors include to increase overall productivity.”
