How the Manufacturing Industry Benefits from Google Workspace

Introducing Google Workspace to the manufacturing industry is beneficial in the following ways.

  • Faster productivity using collaboration features: Any product design visualization for each and every team member is now faster than ever. Any team member can instantly share their research data, designs, CAD files, and quality guideline papers with the stakeholders utilizing Google Sheets, Docs, and Drive, which definitely accelerates the productivity cycle. Arranging web meetings through Google meet can help you to do live meetings with the stockholders and suppliers which also decreases the cycle time.

  • Manage plant operations online: The utilization of Google forms is a simple and effective solution to manage any production plant online. You just need to create Forms for Time off requests, product recalls, or orders. This will help you to keep the plant operations streamlined and up to date. Even if any assembly error occurs team members can share it by uploading photos in Google drive, no matter wherever they are.

  • Schedule and manage tasks online: Managers can schedule tasks online with the help of Google sheets and calendars. They can simply assign tasks to the team members using these collaborative tools and team members can easily get the assigned tasks to work on.

  • Deskless work experience: Google Workspace offers the liberty to all the team members to access any files on Drive from any device ( permission needed from admin) to make the work simpler and easier. Plant workers can easily access Drive to see the given instruction, product specifications, or reports. Even sales teams can spend more time in the field as they can easily access the product configurations, and prices using their mobile devices. They can also schedule Web meetings using Google meet to minimize the travel cost and time.

  • Interview, recruit, or give training online: Set up online application forms to speed up the interview procedure and take the interview of the selected candidates using Google meet from anywhere anytime. Arrange online training sessions using Google meet in order to train them after onboarding.

  • Plant employees empowerment: Use Current communities to help the team members to learn from one another, and share their innovative ideas and feedback on launched products, which creates a sense of community.

  • Create and manage work instructions digitally for the entire plant: To create work instructions for various teams, collaborate with sheets, docs and slides so that every team can give their inputs simultaneously. Once the instructions have been made revoke their edit access and share the instructions with the entire plant. Later on, if you add any points to that document teammates will always get the up-to-date document.
