SAP Shift Planning enables your company to carry out work scheduling that takes into account your employees’ qualifications (SAP Qualification Management). In addition, you can manage on-call duty arrangements and assign employees to specific task forces and working groups, such as relieve and repair crews.
SAP Shift Planning allows you to both analyze, manage and optimize current workforce deployment and monitor as well as simulate future HR needs so that you are well prepared to react to changes. You can both analyze existing qualifications revealing your employees’ hidden potential and point out in time that additional qualifications need to be obtained, either through further trainings (SAP Learning Solution, SAP SuccessFactors Learning) or recruiting (SAP Recruiting, SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting).
If shift planning is integrated in SAP Employee Self Services (SAP ESS), your employees can view their current schedules and request changes based on their personal availability and preferences, which will then be sent to the responsible manager for approval. Eliminating the need for many time-consuming interviews and discussions, this automatism greatly unburdens managers and shift leaders.
