The Manpower Planning module is used to determine the need for resources to implement the established work plan. This module is integrated with the Click Reply WM system to receive a forecast of activities for the following days.
The output from this step is a statement of the resources needed, which the system automatically compares to the resources that are available and scheduled, immediately showing any resource shortages or surpluses for that specific day and work shift.
It consists of the following basic functions:
It allows you to enter the various activities and their type, based on the warehouse process, their metrics and the type of activity (direct or indirect).
The metrics can be defined according to the characteristics of the activities (UPH, LPH,...).
It allows the resource planning manager to determine the requirements based on the operational plan loaded by the WMS or supply chain systems. This function can be applied by day, shift, activity type or process.
If integration with WMS or SCM systems is not possible, a specific function can be used to enter the activity plan manually, directly into the Labour Management system.
The monitoring tool allows the performance of the planning activity to be analysed based on the inputs received from external systems, output against requirements, any need or surplus, and allows the requirements for subsequent days to be exported in reports or files and sent to the relevant warehouse or operation manager.
