Management by means of institutions is usually implemented afterward. Such management is not only inefficient but also has high failure costs and management costs. The management of good use mechanisms is usually implemented beforehand, so take preventive measures and not only have good management effect but also have simple management, high efficiency, and humanity! metal work
First share a story: A company has an open large office with 200 people working together. Because management is not in place, the lights and air conditioners often turn off at night in offices. Recently, the senior management of the company also knew about this matter and instructed the administrative department to strengthen management and solve the problem as soon as possible. metal work
To this end, the Administration Department has thought of many ways. At first, they thought of posting a warm reminder that “people go out and go off”. The effect was poor. Later, an earnest circular was sent out asking everyone to pay attention to it and the effect was not good. Later, they immediately introduced relevant punishment measures. The “criminal” is fined 100 yuan, etc…. As you can see, because the effect is not always satisfactory after taking measures, managers often increase their efforts in system construction. As a result, the system is overweight and the management is complicated. The effect is not good and employees are in conflict.
Similar problems also occur in hotels. After leaving the room, the TV and the electric lights are on. The hotel has come up with the best of both worlds: The room key (IC card) can open the door, and it can also be used to insert a card. When the guest leaves the key, the power is cut off immediately. This linkage method of the hotel belongs to the category of mechanism and is a kind of anti-foolish mechanism (fools can do right). It is derived from wisdom, superior to the system, simple in management, and effective. metal work
For the same problem, one company’s employees came up with another way: They hung a cartoon above the door of the office door. Once they locked the door, the cartoon would fall and write, “Are you turning off the lights?”. This linkage method also belongs to the category of mechanism and is a kind of error correction mechanism.
From the story, we understand a superficial and great principle. While the system is important, the mechanism is more important and more reliable than the system. It will generate much more binding force than the system on the management object. metal work
In a company, in order to prevent employees from missing screws (the most likely mistakes) in the process of assembling machines, people put forward several mechanisms. The first kind is: Install sensors and buzzer on a plurality of screw boxes. If the operator does not take the screws from the screw box in the specified order, the buzzer will alarm. The second method is to design a robot with multiple fingers and automatically suck up the specified number of screws. The operator only needs to install the screws on the robot. The third kind is: Distribute the screws used in each machine in different positions in advance. Each station operator can only finish installing the screws. Although the above three mechanisms have different binding forces, they can reduce employees’ chances of making mistakes in varying degrees. Imagine if someone tries to solve the problem with a system such as “a fine of 100 yuan per missing one screw.” This is ridiculous. metal work
In a factory that produces photocopiers, a heat-dissipating fan must be installed on the side of the photocopier. Once this fan is installed backward, it will cause the machine to overheat and damage. However, because it is an assembly line operation, the operator repeats the work for a long period of time and may be mistaken when he is inattentive. Later, the supervisor asked the operator to increase the inspection process. Even so, there is the possibility of reversal. In order to solve this problem, the most thorough solution is to modify the structure of the exhaust fan so that the exhaust fan cannot be installed in the reverse direction. But it needs to invest a lot of money. Later, the operators used their brains to come up with a solution to the problem, that is, install a fan near the exhaust fan, the other end of the fan installed a small paper windmill, if the correct exhaust fan assembly will be normal exhaust, the windmill will not Stop rotating. If it is found that the windmill does not turn, it must be checked in time, or the exhaust fan is installed backward, or the windmill is broken. metal work
Summarizing the above examples, we have found that the management of institutions is often implemented afterward. Such management is not only ineffective but also has high failure costs and high management costs. The management of good use mechanisms is usually implemented beforehand, so take preventive measures and not only have good management effect, but also have simple management, high efficiency, and humanization. metal work
