ASC Labor Management Solutions

Integrated Solutions for Labor Management for Distribution and Manufacturing Operations

Labor Management Challenges:

In distribution, manufacturing and third-party logistics operations, the cost of labor is typically the largest ongoing expense that a company incurs. But measuring the productivity and efficiency of the workforce is often last on the list of an enterprise implementation. You also know that labor costs rise when processes are inefficient.

At ASC, we engineer all of our processes for "best practices" to be very efficient in all aspects of the work efforts required. Empowering the worker with best practices means better productivity. That is true for all operations from receiving, to the shop floor, and all the way through shipping. In addition, there are gains in work-flows for directed operations and gains through work queues or QC processes.

As you can imagine, a successful implementation of labor management is much more complex than simply installing a software tracking module. It's about managing the processes of the workforce to be more efficient with better work flows. Better processes mean better management which equals better performance - and this is an ongoing process from all sides.

ASCTrac® Solutions:

The ASCTrac® family of products offers many different levels of labor management solutions. The core WMS starts with a simple foundation of time stamped transactions, allowing managers to gauge how well operations are performing. Adding the optional Labor Performance and Statistics Module enables a manager and/or administrator to manage time standards for each labor task and daily performance can be viewed and studied for improvements.

There are also labor costing processes for manufacturing and third-party logistics operations which calculate the cost of labor accrued for each work order or 3PL process.

Example Modules:

  • ASCTrac® Statistics and Labor Performance - engineered labor standards, historic statistics, current statistics, plus ABC analysis, and web based summary analysis
  • ASCTrac® Labor Tracking - used for activity costs for 3PL labor, and manufacturing costing per work order.
