Daily management systems

Share

Daily management systems (DMS) are a set of processes through which team members evaluate their progress towards accomplishing the company’s strategic objectives on a daily basis.

Usually employees keep abreast of what is happening on the plant floor through daily huddles, “gemba walks,” or performance dashboard meetings. These types of daily touchpoints ensure the right person is doing the right work at the right time and allow employees to promptly take corrective action when progress is unsatisfactory.

A DMS simply makes that whole process more efficient, because it expedites the collection, analysis and communication of key information through digitization. Everything is stored and accessible in a centralized management platform, allowing you to scale- up processes and make them leaner

How do daily management systems help?

Here are some of the many benefits of using a daily management system:

  • obtain real-time visibility into the status of every task, access or process
  • monitor the execution of important tasks
  • graphically see performance at all levels
  • make sure roles and responsibilities are clear
  • automate workflows, task assignments and reminders
  • receive problem alerts to take early corrective action
  • identify the root cause of issues that are impeding productivity
  • encourage a culture of accountability
  • reduce human error
  • enable top management to concentrate on high-value problem areas
  • expedite problem resolution
  • reduce waste, errors and delays

What do daily management systems do?

A daily management system requires you to break down your business goals into specific tasks, activities and operational outcomes.

Some daily management systems then collect data from various systems in real time and display a simple visual representation such as a graph or dashboard to show employees at all levels if they’re on target or not. Since everything is displayed visually, the systems clearly communicate what needs to be improved and who is responsible for the action.

In addition, the DMS allows you to create, modify and automate complex business processes, workflows, approval protocols and many other procedures. You can even generate task lists and procedures to ensure you get consistent and predictable results from one individual or team to another.
