How Can You Build a Better Culture in Your Manufacturing Facility?

Manufacturing Workers

According to Gallup, manufacturing workers are least engaged in their work compared to other industries. Read more about creating an engaged company culture!

Workers at manufacturing companies are the least engaged in their work — a full 8 percentage points behind all other industry sectors.”

— Gallup

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, November 27, 2018 / — Looking for ways to jump-start your manufacturing facility to make it more innovative and competitive? Process improvement alone is not enough. The key lies in creating a manufacturing company culture that’s engaged, empowered, and ready to take on the world — to win.

At a time when American manufacturing is poised to make a major comeback, there remains a sticking point — a looming labor shortage as many high-paid, high-tech manufacturing jobs go unfilled. We’ve written previously about the challenges manufacturing companies face in attracting the next generation of workers. In the article, we touched on the importance of improving STEM training as well as the need to create deeper ties between industry and the pool of potential workers through apprenticeship programs.

But what about improving manufacturing company culture? Isn’t that also part of the solution?

We live in a time when workers choosing a career have unprecedented visibility into a company’s culture. Social media and employer reviewing websites, such as Glassdoor, provide direct access to employee commentary of what goes on inside their workplace — at its best, and at its worst. Like Yelp restaurant reviews, savvy readers will ignore the most damning as well as the most effusive, praising reviews as they are likely to be biased. However, the bottom line is clear: if you are looking for a new career, it’s plain to see from review websites and news reports that while many professions are busy changing their office culture to make it more welcoming, accommodating, and flexible for workers, most manufacturing companies seem stuck in the past.

Workers at manufacturing companies are noticing.

According to a recent Gallup survey, the State of the American Workplace, workers at manufacturing companies are the least engaged in their work — a full 8 percentage points behind all other industry sectors. Gallup consultants point out that manufacturing workers want what they perceive their friends and family working in other industries have: more empowerment and flexibility at work, including the ability to set flex-time hours and customize their job role to better fit their needs.

Maybe it’s time to take a step back and take a look at the big picture. What aspects of manufacturing company culture needs to change for careers in manufacturing to be seen as desirable and worthwhile? Which manufacturing culture changes could help make American manufacturing more competitive in innovation, quality, and efficiency? What can be done to reduce the cost of employee turnover? And most importantly of all, how do you go about making these beneficial changes to the manufacturing culture without causing major disruption?

Here are seven recommendations you can use to change your company culture:

1. Get Started With “Keep It Simple Stupid” (KISS) Management Strategies

If you want to change the culture in your manufacturing facility for the better, it can be overwhelming to decide where to start. Don’t reinvent the wheel. Use simple, proven methods to get started.

Well-known manufacturing management techniques, such as 5S, Kaizen, and the Toyota Way, inspired by Toyota (and other Japanese firms) are good places to start. Not only do they help you get organized, but they can also often provide quick, positive results that will help inspire confidence in making further changes.

These programs will not only help you clean up your facilities, making them more efficient, they can also engage employees and make them take more pride in their work. But the benefits of 5S and Kaizen principles go beyond an initial organizational cleanup: these techniques can help provide you and your workers with useful visual information that will help everyone understand production bottlenecks and other trouble spots. It’s an important first step in a cultural shift toward shared responsibility for production.

Gray Engineering consultants have given us a good, real-world example: As Marty Bryant moved from Toyota to become head of operations at an automotive supplier, he realized his new employer had invested heavily in technology to gather metrics — but the information never surfaced on a daily basis to make a difference on the shop floor. The solution: a highly-visible white-board strategically placed for everyone (from the CEO to the shop worker) to see — with color coding that highlights which production processes were on track, behind the plan, or stalled completely. No more hiding bad news inside weekly KPI reports!

Not sure if you are ready to tackle this yourself? Why not call on our experienced Formaspace Consultants? Our Rapid Plant Assessment program will help you quickly pinpoint problematic areas in your factory operations, such as inefficient material handling and poor workflow. Their recommendations can help you put workers first by creating efficient processes from materials handling to the manufacturing floor to the warehouse shipping and packing stations.

2. Change Work Attitudes From “It’s Not My Job” To “It IS My Job”

Good employees want to do good, quality work that makes a difference. But oftentimes, something gets in the way.

When workers no longer feel that their contributions can make a difference, they can feel overwhelmed by a feeling that things are out of their control. As a defensive mechanism, they often retreat into their “shell” to focus on their specific job task — and no more. This can lead to destructive conflicts to adjudicate what are “their” responsibilities versus what are the responsibilities of “others.”

Research by the consulting company PwC shows this problem surfaces across all industry sectors, not just manufacturing. In their 2017 Employee Engagement Landscape Study, the most common workplace obstacle reported by 33% of workers was,
“Doing work for others that is not part of my job.” Rounding out the top five employee complaints were:

Being included in meetings unnecessarily 24%

Paperwork (e.g., reports) 23%

Lack of clear priorities 21%

Lack of clarity about the decision-making process 21%

So when you hear the phrase, “it’s not my job,” you have a problem on your hands. Your employee (who likely represents many others at your company) isn’t feeling they are part of the solution. Instead, they are saying they lack ownership and empowerment, the very characteristics needed to create a culture of quality and innovation.

How can you change the culture from “it’s not my job” to “it IS my job?”

This is a tough problem because it touches on so many aspects of the business. But we recommend starting out by promoting the role of quality and what it means for your workers — from customer satisfaction to the health of the business.

In a Harvard Business Review article Creating a Culture of Quality, authors Ashwin Srinivasan and Bryan Kurey contend that implementing these four principles can make the difference:

Leaders need to “walk the walk” on quality, not just pay lip-service.

Workers need to hear the importance from respected sources in ways that appear to them personally.

Find key influencers respected by the worker community who can use peer influence to promote the role of quality among team members.

Ensure workers know that they are empowered to speak up and make changes to improve quality.

3. Create Clear Pathways For Job Advancement, Education, And Training

Are you having trouble attracting a talented workforce? You are not the only one.

GateHouse Logistics sieht die Forderung nach Datentransparenz als Priorität im Jahr 2019


Data Visibility

Im Jahr 2019 werden Lieferketten durch das Einspeisen relevanter Frachtdaten deutlich intelligenter und effizienter

Damit startet die Logistikbranche in eine neue Ära. Mit der Automatisierung des Datenflusses wird das verstärkte Nutzen der Informationen für Versender und Frachtführer zur Norm.

— Jesper Bennike, CEO, GateHouse Logistics

NøRRESUNDBY, DENMARK, November 27, 2018 / — Der dänische Datenintegrator GateHouse Logistics A/S veröffentlicht heute seine Prognose in Bezug auf die Entwicklung der Supply Chain für das kommende Jahr. Das Unternehmen schätzt, dass sich 2019 deutliche Veränderungen für die Logistikbranche durch besser abrufbare Frachtdaten und des Ausbaus partnerschaftlicher Netzwerke ergeben werden. Dies wird für Transportunternehmen oberste Priorität haben.

„Im Jahr 2019 werden Lieferketten durch das Einspeisen relevanter Frachtdaten deutlich intelligenter und effizienter“, sagt Jesper Bennike, CEO von GateHouse Logistics. „Damit startet die Logistikbranche in eine neue Ära. Mit der Automatisierung des Datenflusses wird das verstärkte Nutzen der Informationen für Versender und Frachtführer zur Norm.“

Bisher seien die Daten der Lieferkette in sogenannten Informationssilos zu lange ungenutzt geblieben. Nur wenn diese Informationen gemeinsam genutzt werden, könne die Supply Chain mit wichtigen Geschäftsinformationen versorgt werden und effizient bleiben, postuliert GateHouse Logistics.

„Eine Reihe neuer Industrie-4.0-Technologien, die miteinander interagieren, kommunizieren und so einen Pool mit wichtigen Frachtinformationen schaffen, werden zurzeit in die Lieferkette integriert. Das trägt wesentlich dazu bei, eine intelligente Supply Chain zu schaffen“, führt Bennike weiter aus.

Wahre Datentransparenz
GateHouse Logistics ist davon überzeugt, dass sich die Logistikbranche im kommenden Jahr verstärkt auf Lösungen konzentrieren wird, die echte und vollständige Datentransparenz liefern. In den vergangenen Jahren sei es für Speditionen und Logistikdienstleister schwierig gewesen, relevante Daten zu erhalten, wenn sie nicht eine Software verwendeten, die auf der gleichen Basis wie die der Transportunternehmen basierte. Folglich konnten sie ihre Geschäftsabläufe nicht in dem Maße optimieren, wie es wünschenswert gewesen wäre.

Evolution der intelligenten Lieferkette
Die Entwicklung der smarten Supply Chain kann bis ins Jahr 2016 zurückverfolgt werden, als Frachtkunden Echtzeitsichtbarkeit für ihre Bestellungen und Sendungen forderten. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt konnten die Unternehmen nicht nachvollziehen, warum sie ihre Fracht nicht verfolgen sowie genauere und zuverlässigere Transit- und ETA-Informationen für ihre Sendungen erhalten konnten. Die Branche hat sich jedoch weiterentwickelt. GateHouse Logistics schätzt, dass es 2019 eine Vielzahl neuer Nutzer geben wird, die mit intelligenten Systemen ihre Ladungen und deren Zustands vom Moment der Abholung bis zur Auslieferung nachverfolgen werden.

Daten jeglichen Typs
Künftig wird die Lieferkette intelligentere Datentypen fordern. Der Fokus liegt neben Positions- und Temperaturdaten, auch auf Sensorinformationen zu Reifendruck, Gewicht des Türsensors und ähnlichem. Zudem werden Daten verstärkt dafür genutzt werden, um Analysen und Wartungspläne zu erstellen. GateHouse Logistics ist sich sicher, dass aus der Kombination und Analyse von Telematikdaten neue Geschäftsmodelle und Dienste hervorgehen werden.

Automatisierung ebnet den Weg für die intelligente Lieferkette
Mit der automatischen Aufnahme neuer Spediteure in die Systeme hat die Transportbranche das Zeitalter der intelligenten Echtzeit-Datentransparenz betreten. Der Datentransparenzdienst ghTrack© von GateHouse Logistics hat den Eingliederungsprozess durch automatisierte Tools um das Dreifache beschleunigt – ein Trend, der sich 2019 fortsetzen wird.

Wachsende Netzwerke und der Aufbau von Ökosystemen
GateHouse ist sich sicher, dass im Jahr 2019 Unternehmen, die Daten intelligent verteilen, Partnerschaften erweitern und nahtlose Interoperabilität bieten werden. Plattformen zur Sichtbarkeit von Daten werden beginnen, Informationen über dezentrale Ökosysteme mithilfe der Blockchain-Technologie auszutauschen. Dies ermöglicht die Erhebung und den Austausch von Daten untereinander gemäß internationalen Vorschriften wie der DSGVO. Auch anderen Interessengruppen könnten diese Daten unter bestimmten Voraussetzungen und Vereinbarungen dann zur Verfügung gestellt werden. So könnten Daten branchenweit optimal genutzt werden.

GateHouse Logistics Predicts Data Visibility Will Be Priority Demand of the Supply Chain in 2019

Jesper Bennike, CEO, GateHouse Logistics

Data Visibility

The year 2019 will see the supply chain become much smarter and more efficient by embracing the freight data visibility era

A gamut of new Industry 4.0 technologies that interact, communicate and create lakes of vital freight information is now entering the supply chain and these will bring about the smart supply chain”

— Jesper Bennike, CEO, GateHouse Logistics

NøRRESUNDBY, DENMARK, November 27, 2018 / — Data unifier and aggregator GateHouse Logistics A/S today releases its annual outlook for the global supply chain industries. The firm sees 2019 as a fundamental transformational year for the logistics industry with freight data visibility and the continued building of ecosystems through industry partnerships becoming key priorities.

“The year 2019 will see the supply chain become much smarter and more efficient by embracing the freight data visibility era,” says Jesper Bennike, CEO GateHouse Logistics. “Increasing the flow of supply chain data through automation between shippers and carriers will become the norm and this will help shorten time to visibility.”

Supply chain data has remained in information silos for too long. When data is not shared, the supply chain cannot access critical business information and remains inefficient. The supply chain is not optimized.

“A gamut of new Industry 4.0 technologies that interact, communicate and create lakes of vital freight information is now entering the supply chain and these will be instrumental in bringing about the smart supply chain,” stresses Bennike.

True visibility

The year 2019 will see the logistics industry move towards higher quality visibility solutions that provide true and complete data. In the past, many shippers experienced bad data quality when they bought visibility solutions not based on an established carrier network. As a result, they could not optimize their businesses. The supply chain will become more selective in 2019.

Smart supply chain evolution

The evolution of the smart supply chain can be traced back to 2016 when freight customers began to demand real-time visibility for their orders and shipments. At that time, companies could not understand why they could not track valuable truckloads and get more accurate and reliable transit and ETA information for their shipments. But the industry has moved on and 2019 will see droves of shippers adopting smart tools for live data visibility of loads and their condition from the moment they are picked up to delivery.

All data types

The year 2019 will see the supply chain demanding more intelligent types of data. Its focus will not only be on obtaining position and temperature data but other types of data, such as tire pressure, door sensor weight and the like and will extend to analytics and predictive maintenance as well. Combining and analyzing telematics data in all kinds of ways will lead to new business models and new services.

Automation paves the way for the smart supply chain

Automating the onboarding process of new carriers onto data visibility systems enables transportation to enter the smart, real-time data visibility era and this trend will continue in 2019. GateHouse Logistics’ data visibility service ghTrack has speeded up the onboarding process threefold by using automated tools – a process which will become widespread in 2019.

Growing networks of partnerships and building ecosystems

The year 2019 will see data distribution companies grow their network of partnerships and have seamless interoperability. Data visibility platforms will begin to share data on decentralized ecosystems using blockchain technology. This will allow the collection and sharing of data per international regulations, such as GDPR in the correct legal way. Data in these ecosystems will be made available to agreed stakeholders (authorities, shippers, carriers, for example) on a need to know basis following agreed rules, format, and terms.

About GateHouse Logistics A/S

GateHouse Logistics is the brand owner of ghTrack®, a completely neutral and independent cloud-based data sharing service that is leading the way business-critical data is securely shared across the entire supply chain. It is also the perfect foundation for smart industries including IoT developments. ghTrack brings long-wanted, real-time end-to-end visibility to all stakeholders in the supply chain.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, November 26, 2018 / —, fast becoming one the world's most popular crypto exchanges, has added yet another feature to it's growing list of services. In early October, they launched a Bitcoin escrow service for three different kinds of contractual agreements involving the use of Bitcoin as consideration: Purchase agreements, for transactions involving real estate, goods, and services; Loan agreements, for lenders that accept the virtual currency as collateral; and Security agreements, where Bitcoin is pledged to secure performance of a contractual obligation such as a bond or surety. In addition, they are the only Bitcoin escrow service which is registered as a money services business with the US Treasury.

Their fees for maintaining these kinds of escrow are set at an industry low 0.8% flat. Both domestic and international transactions will be accepted and all escrow proceeds will be maintained off site in multisig wallets and insured up to $20 million USD. In fact, now that the exchange offers over 100 pairs to trade, Correx will offer escrow in any cryptocurrency that they currently list. All the majors are certainly included.

In its first week of business, over 30 escrows were opened by Correx, primarily for large scale real estate transactions.

Dynama publishes new White Paper: Maritime and Defence Workforce Deployment – Different Worlds, Same Challenges

Effective workforce deployment is essential and the best approach is to combine automated technology with people and processes. Our new White Paper explains how to tackle these hurdles head on.”

— ndrew Carwardine, Managing Director, Dynama

LONDON, UK, November 22, 2018 / — Dynama, a leading provider of workforce deployment and resource optimisation software, has announced the publication of a new White Paper entitled “Maritime and Defence Workforce Deployment – Different Worlds, Same Challenges”. Dynama’s latest White Paper draws parallels between these seemingly two very different sectors and outlines the common set of challenges they face to maximise their human capital and assets in often dangerous, volatile conditions. It then discusses what the maritime and defence sectors can learn from each other by deploying the latest workforce deployment solutions available today.

Andrew Carwardine, Managing Director of Dynama commented, “At first glance, it might appear that the maritime and defence sectors are worlds apart but probe a little deeper and there are startling similarities. Their sheer scale can be an opportunity but equally a threat to operational efficiency and even survival. As maritime organisations grapple with increased competition and consolidation, and defence considers the realities of cyber and biochemical warfare, both sectors are also struggling with skills shortages and retrenching budgets. Effective workforce deployment is essential and the best approach is to combine automated technology with people and processes. Our new White Paper explains how to tackle these hurdles head on through a series of strategies that focus on people, planning and scheduling and communication.”

‘Maritime and Defence Workforce Deployment – Different Worlds, Same Challenges’ is the latest in a series of White Papers from Dynama exploring key business issues faced by complex organisations in resource scheduling. It discusses how the latest advancements in workforce deployment can help overcome these challenges.
