LONG BEACH, Calif. (Feb. 10, 2017) — Royal 4 Systems Inc. has released the WISE Engineered Labor Standards in its newest release of the WISE Tire Warehouse Management System, version 7.7.
Royal 4 Systems' WISE Engineered Labor Standards defines the time necessary for a warehouse operator, working at an ordinary pace and experiencing normal fatigue and delays, to do a defined amount of work when following the prescribed operating method.
According to the company, WISE Engineered Labor Standards compares the calculated standard time to do a task or assignment with the actual time it took, providing an objective measure of operator performance. WISE Engineered Labor Standards accounts for differences in travel, equipment, location, handling, fatigue, congestion and exceptions, the company said. Work tasks and labor standard attributes are user definable at the system administration level.
"Unlike most systems that simply track employee performance based on a company standard average, the WISE Engineered Labor Standards system compares the engineered 'standard' time to the 'actual' elapsed time for an objective measure of employee performance," said Jess Noguera, CEO of Royal 4 Systems.
The company said WISE Engineered Labor Standards data can be populated using time and motion "stopwatch studies," or by using Master Standard Data Tables (MOST).The company said the WISE Engineered Labor Standard system improves productivity, labor planning and work completion times. Operator labor management becomes objective and documented.
"With the addition of WISE Engineered Labor Standards, our customers should realize a 25 percent increase in operator productivity directly improving the bottom line," said Sam Elasmar, president of Royal 4's WISE WMS division. "Customers will achieve an even higher level of productivity improvement by using an incentive plan in conjunction with Labor Standards."
Royal 4 Systems had produced and distributed supply chain software since 1984.
