AWF Working Group Entitled “Time and Work Management” Founded

The following corporations - Behr Hella Thermocontrol GmbH, BKS GmbH, CWS-boco Deutschland GmbH, DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung GmbH, Diehl Comfort Modules GmbH, Hansgrohe SE, HEW-KABEL GmbH, KNIPEX-Werk C. Gustav Putsch KG, Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH, RITTAL GmbH & Co.

Deutsche MTM-Vereinigung e. V. (German MTM Association) or Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH is present from the outset in the person of Executive Director, Knuth Jasker. MTM and AWF have launched a cooperation arrangement on the subject of time and work management – in the light of the ongoing process of digitalization, which calls for reliable, dependable and efficiently prepared time data, particularly for corporations in the manufacturing sector. MTM provides this data.

Representatives from corporations, consultancy firms and research work come together in AWF’s working groups in order to discuss current, innovative topics for a limited period and draw up specific solutions. The range of topics that the “Time and Work Management” working group will process during the coming months includes:

  • Efficiency in collecting, managing and using data
  • From process data to dynamic formulas
  • Data controlling (times) and key performance indicators
  • General legal conditions 
  • Remuneration and time management plus qualifications for time management experts
  • Time management in the PEP
  • Configuring alternatives efficiently
  • Visions for time management plus the effort/expense for time management
  • Appropriate line balancing plus opportunities for using time data
  • Ergonomics/demographics

The first meeting will take place at BKS GmbH in Velbert on 27/28 June 2018. The subject is the organizational classification of time management and lean. The mix of methods for determining data and allowance/set-up/recovery times will be the focus of the second meeting at Niesmann+Bischoff GmbH in Polch on 7/8 November 2018. Deutsche MTM-Vereinigung e. V. will be represented by Knuth Jasker or Ralf Jaehnke, Managing Director of Deutsche MTM-Gesellschaft mbH, and they will support the group of participants with expert advice.
