Targeting Senior Engineers and Engineering Managers this course will develop the attendees understanding of Workload Visibility within their Engineering Department.
Often visibility is overcomplicated, this course will present and discuss simple reliable solutions for getting a real handle on Workload within an Engineering Department.
The course is broken down into three 1-hour Webinar sessions, an overview follows:
Introduction to the Course
Review of a Bespoke / Special Engineering process Autopsy of the process, which bits are critical to workload visibility
Review of impacts of Delegation on workload management
Why is multitasking poisonous and how does it impact visibility
The development of a basic system for workload management in a typical
Bespoke Order Engineering Department
Summary and Q&A
How can workload visibility be automated within PDM and or ERP systems?
Crystal reports or similar
Power BI or similar
How can you use a daily stand-up meeting to improve the efficiency of your Engineering Department and how does your Visibility system play a key role?
Flexing resource to level workload through your Engineering process
Using basic visibility systems
Using automated reporting systems
Summary and Q&A
Review of a real-life example where a Visibility system transformed a Bespoke
Engineering Department’s delivery performance using a basic visibility system
Review of a real-life example using an automated visibility system within a global Engineering business (20 UK based with a further 40 India based Engineers)

“I am currently on my first run of ladder in management in the manufacturing industry, I found the root cause analysis session a great tool to have learnt, the learning was delivered in a confident approach, and the content was well thought out and structured and no question was overlooked, not only did I get an insight into problem solving, but a lesson in how to deliver in a confident and professional approach without being too ambiguous."
“Tunley Engineering has delivered a thorough review of our Engineering process and performance in a very short period of time with the key steps identified that we need to take in order to move our team to the next level. Our Engineering function is critical to ensuring we deliver what our customer needs, on time and to the highest standards – our work with Tunley Engineering is part of our continuous improvement strategy for this area of our business.”
“Tunley Engineering is a great way to sharpen any engineering team, whether they are part of a massive corporate structure or a smaller team. Their method of instruction strays far from the dry methods of old, in which you are simply spoken to and not engaged. With Tunley Engineering, the teaching process is much more interactive with lessons being structured more like workshops than university-style classrooms."
"We hired Tunley to help debug our engineering processes and to improve delivery time for our custom engineered systems. William Beer took the time to do a thorough survey of our existing engineering activities and was able to quickly understand the nature of our processes. He recommended changes that were easy to implement and which gave us immediate positive results."
