Furthermore, an excessively large span of control is often the reason why managers fail to reach their employees, to provide them with the best possible working environment, and to motivate them. These are a basic requirement according to the Ingenics recipe for success: success depends on motivated staff who are given opportunities.
In order to provide or improve these opportunities, the Ingenics Shopfloor Management service also deals with the organizational issues, of course: What organizational structures exist in production? What spans of control are there? Does each shift require a manager? What discussion committees and information media are there? Finally, optimization also includes the definition of key figures, visualizations, meeting areas, and discussion committees.
