Sustainable Automation Journey
Robot Operations Framework
Listen to the People
TRANSFORM by listening to people. Automation sets free a lot of energy. By listening to the employees and collecting experiences from them, you will find even more cases to automate.
Starting with: A potential starting point is to integrate your employees into the ideation process about how and what to automate. They probably know best, since they are on the shop floor every day. Also, create a space for open communication by implementing an open error culture so that you get honest feedback.
Measures & Initiatives: Create insights on how the working culture is currently defined at your company. What are the different working styles, personalities, idiosyncrasies, and annoyances of your employees? It might help to add a person with cross-cultural management experience to this initiative. If you plan to automate in your facility, listen to the employees carefully. If you try an experiment with new technology (proof of concept) in your facility, always be visible and approachable to your team.
Feedback on progress: Collect feedback on a regular basis when trying out new technologies or implementing new processes. Those experiments are mostly done for a limited period of time, so it is important to get honest feedback fast and convert it into actions. Besides, get feedback on how the change is progressing and how your employees perceive it.
