LuitBiz For Electrical & Electronics

How Can Electrical & Electronics Manufacturing Companies Benefit From LuitBiz?

Change and diminishing prices do not make for an easy environment for lean, efficient manufacturing operations. Yet, to fail on either factor, can spell disaster for the offending company. Electrical and electronics manufacturing companies need to learn agility and speed as top priorities. Incorporating change as a normal business practice means finding tools that can support and even help to lead these priorities. Frozen software, without natural abilities to adapt to every situation, can slow time to market, create inefficient operations, and erase a company from its market.

An increasing amount of business functions continue to move online. Using integrated online applications for document, customer & employee management offers electrical & electronics manufacturing companies a range of benefits from improved communication, to enhanced document storage, customer satisfaction and employee engagement. To get the most out of these services, companies must select the software that best meets their needs.

Electrical and electronic part manufacturing involves a number of interconnected processes where different pieces of hardware are either manufactured or procured and then assempled to produce the final product. Depending on the design, there can be various pieces of hardware that may also go into the manufacture of the finished product. This is a complicated process that involves a number of design documents, quality process forms, employee communications and employee process & task management. Additionally, the communications with the customers for whom the product is manufactured also need to be recorded and taken into account during the manufacturing process. LuitBiz DMS, BPM and CRM help companies have an integrated view of all these different processes thereby increasing their efficiency and productivity.

HR issues faced by the electrical & electronics manufacturing industry

Electrical & Electronics Manufacturing companies today have a hard time finding employees who will show up on time for work, stay at their work stations, and stick with their jobs. When it is hard to find reliable personnel, employers have to spend excess time hiring and training new employees, then rehiring and training new employees. This is difficult both in terms of financial costs and efficiency.

The electrical & electronics manufacturing industry being a fragmented industry is seriously affected by various not so supportive Government Policies, low productivity, and so on. It is significant to note that while the industry has been trying to tackle age old and chronic problem areas, newer and more pressing issues have arisen, namely, increased competition, the high investment cost of state of the art production facilities, to name a few, all of which must be effectively dealt with while maintaining a long term perspective. Given this back drop, the role of Human Resource Management function in the Electrical & Electronics Manufacturing sector has been one that has supported the functioning of an industry operating under archaic processes, practices and systems within a difficult or at worst an un-supportive economic environment.

Today, the very people practices that saw the electrical and electronic manufacturing industry through its various trials and tribulations in its earlier days have become inadequate to meet the new business imperatives. The mind set and related people practices have not quite changed with the times, resulting in a drag. The maintenance approach to HR management must transform to one that anticipates and accepts change to come up with solutions that drive business results. Reactivity needs to be replaced by pro-activity.

Some of the challenges faced by the HR department of electrical & electronics manufacturing industry include:

  • Competence-based development for creating a pipeline of future managers
  • Succession planning for business continuity
  • Development of business savvy leaders for creating innovative solutions to meet tomorrow’s business needs
  • Creation of a high-performance and future-proof organization

Given this scenario, the electrical & electronics manufacturing industry is faced with a unique challenge on the people front – that of attracting and retaining talent. The industry is unable to create a clamour for students wanting to join electrical & electronics manufacturing related courses as a preferred career. This talent attraction and acquisition issue is the main issue faced by the HR departments of electrical & electronics manufacturing industries.
