In today’s fast-paced manufacturing environment, it’s critical for your organization to remain on top of the latest technology in order to stay ahead of the competition. Pinnacle Series is a great way to increase productivity in manufacturing, and it can be customized to fit any organization’s needs.
Here are seven ways Pinnacle Series helps organizations increase productivity in manufacturing:
- Effectively train on the latest design tools
- Facilitate collaboration
- Onboard employees efficiently
- Fill skills gaps
- Define best practices
- Store shared knowledge
- Increase design team satisfaction
Let’s discuss how you can use Pinnacle Series to enable increased production throughout your manufacturing organization.
Effectively train on the latest design tools
Our Eagle Point Software industry experts understand that the manufacturing industry is evolving at a rapid pace. Because of this changing landscape, it is critical to ensure your teams have the most cutting-edge knowledge on common manufacturing software like AutoCAD, SOLIDWORKS, and Inventor, and the flexibility to learn new tools as well.
Pinnacle Series equips manufacturing organizations with training materials for dozens of industry software programs. Our content libraries are regularly updated to cover the latest technology trends and practices. By making sure their design professionals are well-equipped to leverage new and improved industry technology, businesses can increase their productivity and overall operating efficiency — from the office to the shop floor.
Pinnacle Series offers collaboration tools and knowledge-sharing features that promote effective communication and teamwork among your employees. For instance, our Work Groups feature enables employees to collaborate on projects, share best practices, and loop in external contractors. Plus, social features allow users to share and comment on content, so they can ask questions and brainstorm solutions together. Fostering a collaborative environment enhances innovation and productivity and promotes unity in your company culture.
Onboard employees efficiently
Looking for ways to streamline the onboarding process for new team members? There are a number of ways that Pinnacle Series can come in handy! Our built-in software knowledge assessment tools let you immediately get a sense of where to plug new hires in. You can develop onboarding materials and training modules aimed at helping new hires quickly become familiar with their roles, responsibilities, and the organization’s processes. Having an efficient onboarding plan minimizes the time it takes for new employees to become productive, enabling them to contribute effectively from the start.
Fill skills gaps
Skills gaps within your workforce can stall projects or lead to miscommunications. To help address these gaps, Pinnacle Series and our KnowledgeSmart integration offer personalized learning methods to identify weaker areas and help employees acquire the necessary skills. They’ll simply take a built-in software skills assessment, and their results will be used to generate a plan that skips topics they already know while refreshing forgotten skills or teaching new ones. This way, you can make sure each employee has the tools they need to operate at their best capacity.
Define best practices
In addition to providing pre-loaded training materials, Pinnacle Series can also serve as a repository for documenting and sharing best practices within manufacturing organizations. By creating custom content, administrators can consolidate their industry-proven methodologies, processes, troubleshooting guides, and techniques in a centralized platform.
Many of our clients use Pinnacle Series as their firm’s “single source of knowledge” to ensure that employees have access to all the right standards and the most effective ways of performing their tasks. This fosters consistency, reduces errors, and increases productivity in manufacturing organizations.
Store shared knowledge
Another great element of the custom content abilities in Pinnacle Series is that it allows employees to capture and contribute to production knowledge. Our subject-matter expert system allows your star employees to contribute to the pool of information, each taking ownership of their topics of expertise.
By tapping into (and storing) the collective knowledge and expertise of your workforce, Pinnacle Series ensures that knowledge is not lost when employees retire or leave the organization. This preserved knowledge can be accessed by current and future employees, enabling them to learn from past experiences and avoid repeating mistakes.
Increase design team satisfaction
Today’s manufacturing labor market is struggling to find quality designers and skilled tradesmen. It takes a lot of time and effort to hire and train new employees and even more to get them to the same level as the ones who departed. Centering learning and development in your company culture can play a crucial role in long-term retention. Employees are more likely to stay with an organization that invests in their development and provides opportunities for growth.
By offering continuous learning opportunities, professional development resources, and career advancement pathways, Pinnacle Series helps create an environment that fosters employee growth and satisfaction. In turn, this translates to increased retention and a stable, experienced manufacturing workforce.
