10/12 Industry Report and Argo’s Jorge Mastellari talk about the human side of efficiency. The article by Sam Barnes explores how addressing behavioral issues helps bridge production gaps and enhance safety.
In this article, you will learn more about Advanced Sustainment and Dynamic Work Design:
- Technology can provide extensive asset reports and craft efficient data; however, if the information is overwhelming and does not communicate succinctly a clear real-time message to supervisors and craftsmen, they won’t be able to find the root cause of problems, correct actions and improve the efficiency of their work.
- Argo has collaborated with the MIT Sloan School of Management in researching the behavioral side of production as it relates to lean. MIT developed the Dynamic Work Design (DWD) theory in an attempt to address the behavioral and communication gaps.
- What technology misses the effective human interactions that are critical for proper problem-solving and decision-making. DWD provides the principles and framework for wiring the work together in a dynamic way.
