    Hi all in a new job crazy place but pay's bills and pc upgrade and more

    I joined as a welder but in 7 weeks promoted to a supervisor still no idea why me but ill love the challenge

    the mind boggle is there is not procedures no agreements no guide lines or reviews for staff

    for the welders there is a 100 panel target per day but its pretty hard to motivate them to really push to 100 and there is no agreement to enforce them to hit 100 per day sing by them nothing not trying to be a dick just so I can fight my corner for them that want it at head office

    by the way thre hitting around 75 to 90 from my eyes the work they put in that's pretty good from the state there in to fix them

    o and so I don't miss it this is the staff line up

    fantastic team at the end

    I'm not sure what your question is. Until you have an accurate idea of what your output is, and output by worker, you've no metrics to work with. Until you understand the process flow, you're not going to be able to devise methods to improve efficiency and quality and document them so you end up with a repeatable process.

    basically comes down to one worker good guy but hard to motivate a number to to day he backfired (if you keep going on about numbers ill do less) but will go on and on about the hard times he has in the 4 years he been there and the brake down he had. the rest of the staff are fine but have less to do since its quiet on there side of the work is all ready done

    but from retail to yard worker its a diffident all together for me

    so really its what and how to handle a loss cannon

    sorry if its not explained properly still thinking on the right way to word it with out sounding wrong

    I know Geordie can be confusing at times (even after I've lived in Newcastle for 3 years!), but honestly I can't even tell what you're saying, please use English.

    perhaps the workers do not understand you when you say you want better numbers from them.

    Without guidlines, rules, production quotas to lean on... About the only things you can do is lead by example, become friends/friendly with the loose cannon and try and make him understand his responsibilities to perform, talk to management about corrective actions for underpeformance, talk to management about bonus pay for meeting or exceeding quotas... I can think of some other things, but only you will be able to know what may work by understand those you work with and management.

    I had made and perfect email last night emailed it to day then went to see my boss opinion on it I'll put it up the night for you all to see but its out of my hands now his aggressive behavior has put him in a bad spot after the manager asked for a bit more lol

    I wonder were I am some times, after reading over what I had written at the time I cannot under stand my self now.
    I have been reading loads of literature on management efficiency to reading books, what a difference from then to now.

    So how did it pan out? In my experience when the quota goes up the quality goes down, management get pissed which is then fed down to the production workers, then the production workers get de-motivated and it all goes back to square one!

    And see how people start picking on each other, atmosphere gets heavy and you start thinking about different job : ]

    Been there, done that.

    From my experience Bonus scheme is the best way to motivate people, unfortunately a lot of managers prefer to say "there are ten people for your spot, do more or bye"

    all ready did, I finally realised being the friend did not work I found out the hard way doing things that way, it made them think I can take advantage of this.

    it went to a point were things went missing to quality of work went down, now its when I walk in the room, they get on with work (works for me) no question or back chat any more.

    silly thing is there 15+ years older they should know better.
