Industry trends, such as automation, changing consumer expectations and digitalisation are transforming the way food manufacturers operate. As more food manufacturers adopt new technology and digitalisation tools to improve productivity at the shopfloor, it is important for them to be competent in carrying out process and job redesign to better help their workforce manage the job transitions and keep pace with the new skillsets required from such business transformation. This helps to ensure long-term competitiveness and sustainable productivity gains.
This masterclass targets company representatives taking on the roles related to Human Resource (HR) and Production, e.g., production managers, QA/QC managers, engineering managers and HR managers. Participants will learn to reimagine how jobs will evolve and how it can be redesigned in a structured approach, which is critical to the interdependence of the four facets of organisational strategy (structure, processes, technology and people) and productivity of the organisation.
After the workshop, you will be able to:
- Establish pre- and post-technology adoption process flows for operations planning
- Determine how job roles and work areas will be impacted due to the adoption of new technology solutions
- Redesign the impacted jobs to incorporate higher value-adding tasks
- Implement and sustain job redesign initiatives
- Show appreciation of the Food Manufacturing Industry Transformation Map (ITM), by understanding the broad visions and how they can tap on government support to help companies deepen existing capabilities and develop new skills.
- Establish pre- and post-adoption process flows due to the adoption of new technology/industry 4.0 solutions.
- Determine how food manufacturing job roles and work areas will be impacted due to the adoption of new technology/industry 4.0 solutions.
- Carry out job analysis and redesign to identify potential opportunities to value-add to the company’s automation plans.
- Implement and sustain job redesign initiatives by tapping WSG’s programmes (e.g. Job Redesign Reskilling (JRR) Career Conversion Programmes (CCPs)).
